Welcome to St. Augustine's Church


St. Augustine’s Church is an attractive grade 2 listed building at the heart of Scissett. As the local Church of England Parish Church, it has been part of the community since 1838. Scissett Church of England Academy is close by and has strong links with St Augustine’s. Members of the church go into school, whilst pupils and staff come to church for various activities. We also have close links with Hillside Nursery School. We run a Charity Shop on nearby Wakefield Road, and this is a good place to pick up some bargains or dispose of unwanted items.

St. Augustine’s Church has been fully refurbished with good facilities and is available for hire. It is also a popular place for weddings. The well maintained clock on the tower is visible from Wakefield Road.

We meet regularly for worship and prayer. St. Augustine’s is a member of Churches Together in High Hoyland, Scissett and Clayton West. Together we run events throughout the year, including Holiday Club. Our vision at St Augustine’s is ‘knowing and experiencing more of God and loving and serving each other in the community.’ We aim to welcome all those who come wherever they are on their journey of faith.


Lighting a candle is a prayer:

When we have gone, it stays alight,
kindling in the hearts and minds
of others the prayers we have
already offered for them
and for others, for the sad,
and the sick, and the suffering,
and prayers of thankfulness too.


Lighting a candle is a parable:
burning itself out,
it gives light to others.
Christ gave himself for others.
He calls us to give ourselves.

Lighting a candle is a symbol:
of love and hope,
of light and warmth.
Our world needs them all.

Prayer used in Salisbury Cathedral
