St Augustines Kirkby in Cleveland

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, in 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.

The service on Sunday 21st April 2024 is 9:30 Holy Communion at St Augustine’s, Kirkby in Cleveland.

The readings are: Acts 4:5-12; Psalm 23; 1 John 3:16-end; John 10:11-18.

In today’s Gospel passage we have one of the ‘I am’ sayings of Jesus: ‘I am the good shepherd’. The contrast is with the hired hand, who is paid to watch the sheep but is not committed to them. When trouble comes he runs away and the sheep are scattered. Jesus, in contrast, is willing to give his life for the sheep, those whom he knows and who know him. Jesus’ other sheep are those who do not presently know him, but whom he seeks. What sort of sheep are we? Those who are scattered, being sought by Jesus, those who know him and follow him, or sheep who ignore his voice?
