We will be happy to have an initial talk to you about the possibility of being baptised/christened, confirmed or married in St. Augustine's Church if you live in the parish and/or attend our church fairly regularly. Currently arrangements for these are then the responsibility of our Archdeacon The Venerable Paul Wright - you can contact his PA Fiona on archdeacon.bromley@rochester.anglican.org
