  • Welcome to the website of St Augustine’s – the Church of England in Kirkby-in-Cleveland and Great Broughton.  The inhabitants of our two villages have professed their Christian faith, and have worshipped on this site, for over a thousand years and we continue this wonderful tradition.

    We are part of a four-church benefice which includes the Parishes of Ingleby Greenhow, Kildale and Chop Gate and is part of the Diocese of York.

    You will find information on the team, on the services in our church and on our support for all in the community at the key points in their lives, by scrolling through the following pages.  The calendar of services and the notice pages, which are regularly up-dated, are a good first point of reference.

    We hope that you are keeping safe during this extended period of uncertainty and we continue to offer support and re-assurance.

    Tomorrow is the Seventh Sunday of Trinity; there will be Service of Holy Communion at St Augustine’s at 9.30 am and we hope that you will be able to join us.

    In the Gospel reading, St Luke records Jesus being asked by a man in the crowd to ensure that his brother would share his inheritance with him when his father died.  Jesus replied that He could not do this and went on to relate the parable of the rich fool, whose land was very fertile and yielded a rich harvest.   The man decided to build bigger barns so that he could store even greater harvests in future years and increase his wealth even more.   But God spoke to the man, saying that he would die that night, and asked who might receive his wealth.  Jesus said that those who stored riches on earth for their own pleasure would remain poor in the sight of God.   Christians believe that focussing not on themselves, but on caring for their families, their neighbours and others in the world-wide community helps them to attain salvation and life everlasting.

    The Bible readings are – Ecclesiastes 1: verse 2 and verses 12 to 14, Colossians 3: verses 1 to 11 and Luke 12: verses 13 to 21.   The appointed psalm is 49, verses 1 to 12 – O hear this, all ye people; the psalmist recounts that those who store great riches for themselves on earth could not buy eternal life.

    On Thursday there will be a Service of Holy Communion at 10 am.

    On Saturday we celebrate the Transfiguration of Our Lord, when Jesus was seen by Peter, James and John on a mountain top, conversing with Moses and Elijah.

    The BBC continues to broadcast the Sunday service at 8.10 am on Radio 4,   The services, and the wide range of readings and prayers, on the Church of England, Diocese of York and York Minster websites –churchofengland.org, dioceseofyork.org.uk/onlineworship and yorkminster.org – provide a spiritual resource for these difficult times.

    With best wishes and every blessing.
