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, ask some questions and hear about what life in the Saint Augustine’s family is about – all over a delicious meal and glass of vino. The next Meet n Eat is happening on Thursday 19th September and places are limited to help foster meaningful connection, so please let us know you’re keen to come along.
Calling all the Beyonce Know'Alls, the Quizteama Aguilera’s, the John Triviaolta’s and the Red Hot Trivia Peppers… yes, it’s the time of year to get your Quiz on!! Even if you’re not normally a ‘quiz person’ we promise this will be a fun night and a great chance to get to know some of the people you see on Sundays but have yet to say hi to.
Either register as an individual and we can help find you a team or get a team together and sign up. There will be a prize for the best team name and as always, the chance to win the much coveted Saint Augustine’s trophy. Midwinter Quiz is open to all so feel free to invite family, friends, neighbours or anyone you know who is good at quizzes.
Tuesday 24th September // 7pm – 9.30pm (quiz to start at 7.30pm) // $10pp includes nibbles // Drinks available to buy at the bar on the night // Maximum 8 per team
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.
Breathe in October is now fully booked. If you would like to register for the Breathe waiting list, incase a place becomes available, please let us know 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.
