  • 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 Second Sunday of Trinity. There will be a Benefice Service of Holy Communion at St Cuthbert’s, Kildale, at 10.30 am; we hope that you will be able to join us.

    In the Gospel reading, St Luke records Jesus and His disciples travelling to Jerusalem and passing through Samaria; He intended to stay in a village overnight, but the Samaritans would not let Him.   James and John and both wanted Jesus to destroy the village with fire from heaven, but He refused, saying to them that He had not come to destroy people’s lives, but to save them. They continued the journey and at another village an inhabitant said that he wished to become a disciple, once he had dealt with a family matter.  Jesus replied that the man should not delay, but immediately go forward and preach the kingdom of God. Those who have professed the faith of Christ down the centuries have suffered many hardships in spreading the good news of the Kingdom of God, but continue to believe in His goodness to all people. 

    The Bible readings are – 1 Kings 19: verses 5 to 16 and 19 to the end, Galatians 5: verses 1 and 13 to 25 and Luke 9: verses 51 to the end.   The appointed psalm is 16 – Preserve me, O God, for in thee have I put my trust; the writer praises God for His goodness to all people.

    On Wednesday, we celebrate the Apostles Peter and Paul.

    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.
