Who are we and what do we do?
St Augustine's Kilburn is open to worshippers of all ages and backgrounds. We lead our congregation in worship, deepening the connection to God, understanding the teachings of Christ, and ultimately to a vibrant faith.
We have a long, proud history of serving the people of London. Through the dedication of our leadership, staff members and volunteers, we are committed to the teachings of Jesus Christ, and are here to spread His message. Contact us today to find out more about becoming part of the St Augustine's Kilburn community.
Our community is vibrant and diverse, with the church welcoming worshippers from far and wide who are drawn to St Augustine's long-established tradition of Catholic worship, mission and outreach in Kilburn, Maida Vale and the wider London area.
Whilst the historic Anglo-Catholic reputation of the Parish continues to attract worshippers from well beyond the boundaries of the Parish, both our electoral roll and regular Sunday congregation contain a significant proportion of local residents. Our congregation comprises a wide age range and is ethnically diverse, reflecting the Parish as a whole.
OUR MISSION & OUTREACH
St Augustine's Kilburn seeks to bear witness to the Christian faith through upholding the Catholic tradition of worship centred around the daily offering of the Mass and of service to the community through pastoral care and outreach.
We are an inclusive and welcoming church, which aims to inspire and support all members and to proclaim the Gospel in the wider community we are called to serve.
