St. Augustine of Canterbury Episcopal Church is a twenty-nine 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 secured. Over time, the Sanctuary (Nave), two wings, a columbarium, and a parking lot were 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. We seek to offer hospitality so that our 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/Contemporary Christian 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 a difficult endeavour. We welcome you to our church home.
