As St. Augustine's grows, one of our main goals is continuing to develop a sense of community. There are several opportunities for fellowship in smaller group settings. Dive in and get to know more people! Contact Lissa Smith if you have an idea for a new activity.

Fall Retreat 2017 - October 6-8 – St. Augustine’s Annual Parish Retreat at DuBose Conference Center in Monteagle, TN

Women's Group

  Our wonderful and diverse circle of women gathers monthly to focus on prayer, outreach, supporting our clergy and one another while exploring service, healing, and education. We also find many ways to laugh, question, cook, eat, do arts & crafts, and connect with nature as we work. For more information, contact Jes Williams.

Men's Group

  Fun, Fellowship, and Service to the St. Augustine’s community. We'll be getting together soon for an informal gathering to talk about ideas for moving forward. If you're interested, please contact Doug Murphy.

Book Group

  This monthly group is a great opportunity for fellowship and discussing interesting books. We read a different book each month, and you choose which meetings to attend based on your interest in the book and availability. All are welcome! Gatherings are typically the first Monday of the month at Francie Likis' house (7:00 p.m. at 4530 Everett Drive). For more information, please contact Francie Likis at .

20s/30s Group  

  Join this monthly gathering of fun and fellowship for young adults. Check the newsletter and calendar for upcoming gatherings. For information, contact Christy Beesley.

Cottage Dinners

  Cottage dinners are an increasingly popular way for people to connect with one another in small groups by gathering each month for a meal. Over time, the group members will be shuffled so that more and more connections may be made. To join a cottage dinner group, contact Barbara Ball.

St. Augustine's Writing Circle

Amy Lyles Wilson  In the St. Augustine’s Writing Circle, we gather to write in community. All adults are welcome, and you need not consider yourself a “real writer" to join us. We write in response to prompts, and critique is not part of our process. You will be invited, but not compelled, to share your work aloud as the spirit moves. St. A’s member Amy Lyles Wilson, a writer and workshop leader who is a graduate of Vanderbilt University Divinity School, facilitates the group. Feel free to contact her with questions at . “It’s the sharing of our stories that saves us.”
