God has given us two hands, one to receive with & the other to give with. Make use of both!

Closing of Church

As from 5th December 2020 Church will once again be closed for both private prayer and for Mass.
Please keep checking the website/Facebook pages for further information.
We will continue to live-stream Sunday Mass at 9.15am via Facebook for the time being.


As from the evening of Friday the 20th March all public liturgies will be suspended. That means no Sunday or weekday masses. All Obligation is also removed until further notice. Masses will be celebrated by the Priest but without the faithful. Baptisms will also be deferred. If any have been scheduled in the next month or so, please contact the Priest to see what can be done.

The celebration of the Sacrament of Matrimony should also be deferred until such time that people can gather in numbers safely. However, if this is not possible and only in the most pressing of circumstances, then those present for the marriage should be restricted to the celebrant, the bride and groom and immediate family and the legal registrar. Funeral services should take place at the graveside or at a crematorium, subject to the conditions laid down by the cemetery or crematorium authorities. Arrangements should be made for a Mass to be celebrated in memoriam when congregations are allowed to gather. This advice will be reviewed and developed as necessary weekly.

Rev. Canon C. Thomas, General Secretary to the Bishops’ Conference. 18th March 2020.


Come and visit us at St Augustine’s Church, we welcome everyone and look forward to saying hello. We have a very active and thriving parish, and we always need new people to be involved and make a difference.


Our parish community is something we are proud of. From helping each other, to helping people in other countries and surrounding areas. Our parish is always there to provide what we can and do it with a smile.


We are located in the centre of Darlington in County Durham. A great market town which is well worth visiting. We are situated minutes from the town centre and also have our own Parish Centre right next door!
