Message from the Vicar & Senior Pastor
Gabriel Anstis (Vicar & Senior Pastor) and his wife Emma.
Whether you're new to the area, or simply wanting to come and see what St Augustine's is like, you are really welcome. If there's anything we can do to help you as you visit, please do let us know. We gather as a church community at 10.30am. We call this gathering a service. The service lasts about an hour and a half, finishing at about midday. The service contains numerous elements such as prayer, musical worship, Bible exploration and teaching, and prayer ministry. There are also age appropriate groups for all the children and young people. 10.30am on Sundays: we would love to see you.
We are a diverse community, and want to welcome people from all backgrounds. Everyone matters, and everyone has different gifts and qualities which add to the life of the church family and local neighbourhood of Highbury (Islington area). We are a church in Highbury passionate about and committed to knowing and following Jesus. We want to serve and bless our local neighbourhood and parish, living out Jesus' call to love others. We want to increasingly become the people that God has called us to be, knowing God the Father, living Jesus’ way, and being led by the Holy Spirit in every aspect of our lives.
In John 3:16-17 in the Bible, Jesus says: 'For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.' At St Augustine's we are passionate about Jesus, His life, death and resurrection. Jesus brings life. He rescues, heals and transforms.
Jesus is committed to you.
