TO CELEBRATE the bicentenary of the birth of the architect that designed St Augustine's Church a special service will be held this weekend.

On September 7, 200 years ago, the remarkable Victorian architect William Butterfield was born in London.

Among many notable buildings, including Keble College Oxford, he designed St Augustine's Church.

To mark this bicentenary, hymns at the service at St Augustine's on Sunday at 10.30am will all be composed by contemporaries of Butterfield, and the church will be open for visitors that afternoon from 2pm until 4pm.

On Sunday, September 28, at 7.30pm a Choral Concert with the St Augustine's Singers, Robert Court and Thomas Trotter will be dedicated to William Butterfield.
