Church of England Diocese of Southwark Honor Oak Park, Saint Augustine of Canterbury

St Augustine, Honor Oak Park

OPEN DOORS - OPEN HEARTS - OPEN MINDS

You will see that St Augustine's is a beautiful church. It is also in a beautiful location on top of One Tree Hill. We gather here to worship God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. As we celebrate Holy Communion together we draw close to God as we share in the bread and the wine and through this we become spiritually nourished. We also draw close to God through study of the Bible so that we may deepen our faith and our understanding of God and so that our faith may find true expression in how we live our lives.
