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.

Tomorrow is the Fourth Sunday after Trinity.  There will be no service at St Augustine’s; the Benefice Service of Holy Communion will take place at St Cuthbert’s, Kildale, at 10.30 am.  The speaker will be Mark Sutcliffe and we hope that you will be able to join us.

In the Gospel reading, St Mark records Jesus joining His disciples in a boat which was about to set sail in the evening to cross to the other side of the Sea of Galilee.   After leaving the shore, the wind suddenly became very strong and waves flooded into the boat.  Jesus was asleep in the stern, but the disciples roused Him, afraid that they might perish.  Jesus woke and commanded the wind to cease and the seas to become calm; and they did so.  Jesus asked the disciples why they were so fearful; He was saddened that, although they had witnessed the many miracles that He had performed, they did not yet have sufficient trust in Him to save them.  Christians continue to believe that having faith in the care, and healing power, of Jesus will sustain them in their earthly life.

The Bible readings are – Job 38: verses 1 to 11, 2 Corinthians 6: verses 1 to13 and Mark 4: verse 35 to the end.   The appointed psalm is 107: verses 1 t0 3 and 23 to 32 – O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is gracious – the psalmist praises God for His goodness to all people. 

On Monday we celebrate the birth of John the Baptist and on Saturday we celebrate the Apostles Peter and Paul.
