The church of today
We take inspiration from St Augustine’s restless search for meaning and happiness as a young person. We believe in the importance of recruiting and offering formation to young people who can then minister to those younger than themselves.
Guiding on the next step
Becoming a solemnly professed Augustinian priest or brother is a lifelong commitment to God, to the Church, and to the Augustinian Order. The formation process is a time to develop both the mind and the heart to better help future Augustinian friars serve God's people.
Clare Priory offers a tranquil environment for those who wish to withdraw from their daily lives and find rest in the Lord. It is the main Retreat Centre of the Order of St Augustine (O.S.A.) for England and Scotland.
A cultural & spiritual centre
Austin Forum is a non-profit public space that engages the local community. People from different beliefs and backgrounds come together through art ventures, youth work and community projects that explore spirituality and social justice.
Our mission as servants of humanity
The Friars are involved in a variety of ministries, including prison and University chaplaincy and are keen to bridge the Church to the wider community through spirituality, art and social justice activities.
