St Augustine's Church had many structural problems. Rainwater had penetrated the roof after lead was stolen. In 2004 the city council planniners gave consent to demolish the church and build a new structure. The church was deemed unsafe in 2007 and closed.
Parishioners hoped to raise up to £50,000 towards the £350,000 cost of the new church. Following concerns about the lack of progress, Canon Nicholas Hay was appointed as caretaker minister. Services are currently held in Bridge Farm School. Construction work on a new church will begin in the autumn of 2013.
