New All-Age Choir at St Augustine’s

Our new All-Age Choir was set up at the end of February. We currently have 18 members ranging from age 7 to 70ish. We rehearse on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of every month at 10am and sing at our All-Age Service which is on the 4th Sunday of every month at 10:30am.

Fun and friendship is at the heart of this choir. We enjoy singing a wide range of different musical styles. At our first service as a choir, which focused on the theme of prayer, we sang the South African song ‘Woza Nomthwalo/Come, bring your burdens to God’ in four part harmony. We also sang a John Bell chant based on Psalm 30:11 called ‘Lord, you can turn all mourning into dancing’. This chant was accompanied by some boomwhackers (tuned percussion tubes) played by some of our younger members. From the wider congregation’s feedback afterwards it was clear that the All-Age Choir had deeply enriched our church’s worship. We are currently working on the music for our All-Age Communion Service on Palm Sunday. The All-Age Choir will lead the singing as we process into church from the Mayfield green. They will also sing the beautiful Nina Simone song ‘I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel to Be Free’ as we remember Jesus who comes to us in peace offering us the freedom we all long for.

All are welcome to join our All-Age Choir. Here’s a photo of us after our first service in February:


Beat the February Blues

We had a fantastic social event to warm our hearts and lift our spirits during the February freeze. There was a quiz (including a tasting round!) for our adults and games and activities for our children. It was great to spend time together and share a tasty home-cooked meal.


Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

at St Mary’s RC Primary School

During Collective Worship with Revd Ricky, the children at St Mary’s Roman Catholic Primary School had a fantastic time celebrating and praying for Christian unity throughout the world. They read the story of The Pink Cricket by Giles Andreae and thought about Jesus’ prayer for unity (John 17:12). They gave thanks that Christians are all different and yet one and they asked God to help all Christians work together to make the world a more beautiful place.


RE Active Church – Christmas Angels

We had a lovely time working with the children in classes 2 to 6 from St Augustine’s Academy on the 8th and 15th December. Together we explored the significance of angels in the Christmas story. We had a really engaging and interesting time together – as well as lots of fun!

Write for Rights Campaign

On Wednesday 13th December our Peace and Justice Group
organised an Amnesty International Write for Rights evening.
We wrote over 30 cards and letters offering words of support and
solidarity to those whose human rights are being abused
and words of challenge and truth-telling to those in power –
calling for justice to be done.

We long for the coming of God’s reign of

love and mercy, justice and peace…


Let justice roll down like waters
and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream (Amos 5:24)
