St Augustine’s Chapel
Cote Lane retirement village was the founding site of the St Monica Trust when it was formed in 1920. The brainchild of Mary Monica Wills who wanted to create a rest home for older people with a ‘splendid and very beautiful chapel’ at its heart. That chapel is the magnificent St Augustine’s which is the focal point for spirituality at Cote Lane.

Together with the Village Manager and Community Engagement Coordinator, they play a pivotal role within village life ensuring everybody’s well-being is being enriched and nurtured.
