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.

Sunday 19th May 2024 is Pentecost. The service is 9:30 am Holy Communion at St Augustine’s.

The readings are: Acts 2:1-21; Psalm 104: 25-35, 37; Romans 8:22-27; John 15:26-27, 16:4b-15.

Pentecost is, of course, the celebration of the giving of the Holy Spirit to guide and empower the church and is related in the reading from the Acts of the Apostles. In the Gospel passage, Jesus refers to the Holy Spirit as the Advocate. Here, the Advocate is the consoler for the departure of Jesus himself from the disciples to go to his Father. Jesus is anticipating his crucifixion and preparing the disciples for what happens next. The Holy Spirit does not accomplish anything new – Jesus’ work of redemption is complete – but will come and stand alongside his disciples. Those disciples include us, of course. Are we being guided by the Spirit that gives life? If so, how?
