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 Eighth Sunday after Trinity.  There will be a 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 Mark records Jesus meeting with His disciples and hearing the good work that they had done in preaching the repentance of sins to all those who they met.  Jesus then went with them by boat to a deserted place on the lakeshore so that they could rest, but many people saw them leave and followed them.  Our Lord felt sorry for them since they had no leader and He began to teach them.  Later, Jesus and the disciples left, again by boat, and when they landed near a village the crowd immediately recognised Him.   They brought many sick people to Jesus; He let them touch the hem of His robe and all those that did so were healed.  This belief in the goodness of God and His Son Jesus, and the healing of both mind and body which stems from this is at the heart of the Christian faith and is just as relevant today.

The Bible readings are – Jeremiah 23: verses 1 to 6, Ephesians 2: verses 11 to the end and Mark 6: verses 30 to 34 and 53 to the end.   The appointed psalm is 23 – The Lord is my shepherd – the psalmist puts his trust in the lord now and forever; these words are a great comfort and reassurance to all.

On Monday we celebrate Mary Magdalene, a disciple of Jesus, and on Thursday we remember St James the Apostle.
