About Us


St Augustine's is an active parish of about 900 people at Mass every Sunday, along with those Catholics in our area who do not worship with us regularly. It is a very mixed community, across every age range. There are many residential and nursing homes in the town, and we are delighted to have many elderly parishioners, plenty of whom are still very active in the parish. There is also a large number of young families: at Mass most Sundays there are well over 200 children under 11, as well as nearly 200 teenagers. Tunbridge Wells is also far more socially mixed than many outsiders would think true of a town such as ours. St Augustine's parish covers far more than the town of Tunbridge Wells. Its southern boundary is the Kent/Sussex border, and it reaches from the outskirts of Pembury to Ashurst. Our parish includes the villages of Fordcombe, Penshurst, Speldhurst, Rusthall, Langton Green and the Kent part of Groombridge.
