St Augustine's is a small single-cell church of flint with a wooden bell-turret on the West gable and a thatched roof. Inside there is a 14th century wooden screen. St Augustine's underwent Victorian restoration in about 1860, which was when the bell-turret, the E window and the chancel furnishings were added.

There is parking at the end of the track near to the church.

Families are always welcome to all of the services, but those more suited to their needs have been specially highlighted. 

The building is the focus of our church community which gathers week by week to engage with God’s Mission of love to the world.  Will you join us on our journey and perhaps make it yours?

We give shape to our work by following the 'Five Marks of Mission' adopted by the Anglican Church worldwide, and seek to show them both in our communal and individual lives. They are to:

  • proclaim the good news of the Kingdom
  • teach, baptize and nurture new believers
  • respond to human need by loving service
  • seek to transform unjust structures of society, challenging violence, injustice and oppression and working for peace and reconciliation
  • strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustaining and renewing the life of the earth

We have strong links with Gt Finborough Church School catering for children from 4 to 11 from this parish. We welcome enquiries for Weddings and Baptisms which should be made to the Priest-in-Charge.

You will be most welcome to join us in our worship or at any of our events detailed in OHSMag by contacting the Priest-in-Charge or Churchwardens who will be happy to help.

We are in a benefice with Onehouse, Great Finborough, Buxhall and Shelland and linked with the churches at Combs and Little Finborough, who you will find have a similar focus for their work.
