If you’re new to Saint Augustine’s or thinking about joining then we’d love to talk. This is the very best way to meet each other, meet the staff and hear about what life in the Saint Augustine’s family is about – all over a meal and glass of vino. The next Meet n Eat is happening on Monday 1st April and places are limited to help foster meaningful connection, so please let us know you’re keen to come along.
Hey, we’re so glad that you're coming along to our AGM! A central part of the AGM involves electing a Governance Committee, a Mission Venture Church Warden, and a Synod Representative. While everybody is welcome to attend the AGM, according to the regulation set out by the Anglican Church, only members on the Church roll can vote.
For catering purposes, please confirm your attendance at this year's AGM by filling in the RSVP form below and at the same time confirm your name on the official Saint Augustine's Church Roll to be able to vote on the elected positions mentioned above. If you would like more information on our AGM, please contact Alyssa.
You are invited to come away – to relax, to rest and retreat. To turn from the noise and the army of voices – to unplug, to inhale and to breathe. It has been said that prayer is to the soul what oxygen is to the body, and Breathe is a guided step into the contemplative practices of stillness, silence and solitude. We’re not saying it’s going to be easy, we’re not even saying it’ll be fun! But, for our hyper-connected generation we hope it will be a unique experience where you get to know God, and yourself, much better.
Set in the peaceful surrounds of the Whakata Country Retreat in Riverhead, Breathe begins with dinner at 7pm on Thursday 17 October and ends at midday on Sunday 20th October. The cost of $285pp covers the 3 nights’ accommodation at Whakata and of course the nourishing meals for the weekend. We ask that you make the commitment to come for the full time and to help ensure a relaxing experience, this (mostly) silent retreat is limited to just 16 people so to secure your place, please register below.
We have a mad keen group of surfers at Saint Augustine's who regularly head out to the water (including our leader, Newt). It's a great way to meet some new folk and catch some waves at the same time. If you're keen to hear about when they're heading out next, drop a line to Murray who's coordinating this group by using the contact button below.
