HISTORY:

In 1906 a piece of land was bought in Calliope Road, Devonport, for £125 so that a “mission hall” could be erected. This property was sold in 1911 for £600 and the present site at 95 Calliope Road was purchased.

In 1911 when a new Church Hall was built at Holy Trinity in Church Street, the old 1865 church building was moved to Calliope Road and used as a Mission Church for the Stanley Bay area.

This was a distance in those days, but is only 1.3 kms from Holy Trinity. The present brick Church of St. Augustine was built staug_pewsin 1930 in memory of those who gave their lives in the Great War of 1914-1918, and the existing wooden church was then (and still is) put to use as a Church Hall.

St. Augustine’s seats about 80 comfortably and is the only church in the Stanley Bay area of Devonport. It is named after St. Augustine’s of Canterbury.
