We have churches at Shepparton, Dookie, Murchison and Rushworth and an active Fellowship Group at Katandra West. In Shepparton we also serve the local Macedonian Orthodox community, with our clergy doing their special services. The local Syrian Jacobite community also uses St. Augustine’s as its base.
We attempt to be true to the tradition from which the Parish springs while being open to what is new and fresh.
Everyone is welcome to ‘Come and see’ – join one of our regular services or speak to the Priest-in-Charge or the Parish office secretary.
We acknowledge that our Parish Churches stand on traditional Aboriginal Lands. We pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging and affirm our commitment to the work of reconciliation.
St Augustine’s also has a rectory (built 1953), updated in 2016. Within the grounds of St. Augustine’s is a Memorial Wall and Garden for the interment of ashes, as well as two tennis courts and four units owned by the Parish. St Augustine’s hall (dedicated 1967) is rented out for community activities and is an asset for whole-of-parish functions or Diocesan functions.
Many Christians give generously to the Church so that it is able to fulfil its mission and vision.
Tithing is an Old Testament concept. The tithe was a requirement of the Law in which the Israelites were to give 10 percent of the crops they grew and the livestock they raised to the tabernacle/temple.
St Augustine Shepparton welcomes you no matter where you are on your faith’s journey. This parish church has a wonderful loving community that will welcome you with open arms. We are a growing group of dedicated Christians who strive to love and serve Jesus Christ through our worship and community life.
