St. Augustine of Canterbury Episcopal Church

St. Augustine of Canterbury Episcopal Church is a twenty-five-year-old Mission Congregation of the Episcopal Diocese of Upper South Carolina.  In the early 1990s, the Diocese wanted to have an Episcopal presence on the south side of Aiken.  After some study and discernment, ten acres on Silver Bluff Road were purchased.  Over time, the Sanctuary, two wings, a columbarium, and a parking lot have been constructed.

The members of St. Augustine of Canterbury work hard to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to the Aiken community in a variety of ways.  Our three main areas of service are outreach, hospitality, and worship.  We support local non-profit groups quarterly, contribute to ACTS, and have an annual yard sale (quite popular and well attended!) with all of our proceeds to go toward our outreach efforts.  Internationally, we support Episcopal missionaries in Quito, Ecuador.  The hospitality we offer is one of making our visitors to “feel at ease and at home” when on our campus.  When visiting, guests will receive more than just a coffee mug.  Guests will receive the warmest of interaction, as we play host to our brothers and sisters in Christ.  Our worship style is fairly relaxed, but reverent.  Our music is a balance of renewal/Cursillo music and traditional hymns.  We follow the rubrics (directions) of the Book of Common Prayer (1979) of the Episcopal Church.  Our bulletins are full text, including music, so following the service is not difficult.

We hope that guests will “come and see” our church and church family and then “stay and be” part of this wonderful community of faith.  For more information about St. Augustine of Canterbury, please check out our website.
