South Croydon Benefice 

Welcome to our website. As the church year draws to a close, we have a season of remembrance. We give thanks those who have gone before us, with special services for All Saints’, All Souls’, and Remembrance Sunday. Now that you have found us online, we hope to see you in person very soon.

    Safeguarding: The parishes of St Peter and St. Augustine's are committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officers (PSO). The Diocese of Southwark’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSO. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority's Children or Adults Services. See our 'Safeguarding' page for more detail
