St Augustines, Burrough Green is early 13th Century having had major renovations at the end of the 17th Century. Possibly the most historically interesting of our Benefice churches because of the rare three gabled aisles, the five De Burgh family effigies, stone sedilla and double piscina. St Augustines can seat approximately 175 people plus 20 choir seats - we do also have space for some additional chairs.
We have a regular Communion service at 9.00 am on the third Sunday of each month and a Family Service on the first Sunday of each month - this is child centred and we often have action songs - be warned! Like other parishes, we also have special services at different times in the Church calendar. You are welcome to any of our services and we would love to see you.
Coming up at Burrough Green:
St Augustine’s Project After many years of planning and fund raising we are finally able to carry out significant work to provide a modernised facility meeting the needs of our community. We are particularly grateful and would like to acknowledge the grant that we have received form the Amey Community Fund (part of the Landfill Communities Fund) which has contributed towards the cost of this project. We would also like to acknowledge contributions made by the All Churches Trust and Headley Trust.
The work has started and should be completed by the end of January 2021 and will include a new phase 3 power supply to the church, under pew heating throughout, a new water supply, drainage, an accessible WC, refreshment and flower preparation area and a hearing loop. Once the works are complete, the church will serve as a venue in which a large number of people with differing needs can gather for a variety of reasons. The school and playgroup in the village will be able to use the church as an additional learning environment as well as being able to stage additional music and other events. The elderly and disabled in the village may attend events without the need for transport and the community as a whole can come together at any time during the year, enhancing the community spirit for which the village already has a reputation. The church is open and freely accessible every day of the year.
