Parish History[edit | edit source]
Norwich St Augustine is an Ancient Parish in the city and Diocese of Norwich.
A medieval church It is probably named for St Augustine of Canterbury, who was sent to England by Gregory the Great in 597, although there is a possibility it may be named for Augustine of Hippo.
The orginal tower collapsed in 1677 and the redbrick tower built on the original base in the 1680's. Parishioners became known as the "Red Steeplers" from the distinct tower in the city.
the rest of the church is built of flint and has undergone internal renovation.
The parish was united with various neighboring ones – St Mary Coslany, St George Colegate – over the years, but was finally united with St Luke, Aylsham Road, before being declared redundant in 1997 and is now in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust.
