£3.95


In 597 AD a party of 40 monks landed their boat on the Kent coast, ending a journey that had started in Italy and which had taken nearly a year to complete. Led by a Roman prior called Augustine, this small group took only a few years to build foundations of a new Christian Church in Britain. Sent on this difficult missions by his friend, Pope Gregory, Augustine was a man who had never expected to live such an extraordinary life.

Beautifully illustrated with over 20 original watercolours, this book tells the story of St Augustine, Apostle of England, for a younger audience. Charting not only Augstine’s life and work but also the development of his legacy up to the present day, it offers a powerful example of how hard work and belief can achieve great things.
Book ideal for children aged 7-13.
