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.




Eternal light shine into our hearts,

eternal goodness, deliver us form evil,

eternal power, be our support,

eternal wisdom, scatter the darkness of our ignorance,

eternal pity, have mercy upon us;

that with all our heart and mind and soul and strength

we may seek your face and be brought by your infinite mercy

to your holy presence;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.
