About St. Augustine’s

This Landmark needs your help!

Perhaps it is where you were married, or maybe the churchyard is somewhere a loved one is buried. Maybe you just like to visit it as one of your favourite places.

There are so many reasons why we should keep this iconic, Grade 1 listed building in good condition for future generations.

Open Church

We have a team of guides who open the church regularly. The church will be open on the first Sunday of each month between 2pm and 4pm, and on every Wednesday between 2pm and 4pm.  If you would like to visit the church at another time or would like to bring a group to visit and find the usual times inconvenient please contact Chris Williams at chriswilliams43@gmail.com.  Chris will be able to help you.

Our guides will be more than happy to explain the detail of the building and the history of the church.
