St Augustine’s is one of the places of worship of Holy Trinity Church, Skipton. Normally, services are held every Sunday, usually at 9.30am, but the service on the third Sunday of every month is taken by the Rector and starts at 11.15am. A family service is held at 9.30am on the first Sunday of every month. Services for the whole community, especially families, are also held on key dates in the calendar, such as Easter Sunday. A Committee of volunteers drawn from the Village is responsible for monitoring the day-to-day running of the Church. The Rector, or another member of the clergy who takes services in the Village, visits Draughton to attend the monthly Monday afternoon tea parties in the village hall.
The church has been raising funds to pay for the costs of insulating the church roof, which are now (September 2023) in progress. There is a small amount yet to raise. Donations to the roof fund may be made using this link:
The roof works are part of the church’s project to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2030.
The church is putting on a series of special services during September and October to publicise the climate project, themed around Creation. See the poster here: Draughton Creation poster
