Church services were held in Augusta almost from the start of the town in 1830 and funds were collected for a church building as early as 1833. With changes to early settlements, while services continued in private homes and the school, plans for the building did not progress until the town began to grow in the 1920s. At that time, Augusta was nothing more than a small fishing village on the south coast reached by a rough gravel road from Vasse.

Wars delayed plans for the building of a church. By 1957 the township had an Anglican Church due to the efforts of local people. The building came from a paddock in Kudardup and had been a tobacco-drying shed. The refurbished church was furnished through the generosity of the Order of St Elizabeth of Hungary. The church was dedicated on 21 October 1958.

By the end of the twentieth century, a larger church was required for the growing community. A new church for a new millennium was actioned; a new multi-purpose design building was constructed on the same large site. The new church, also St Elizabeth of Hungary, was consecrated in 2004.

The modern roomy church is full of natural light and is airy with comfortable seating for large groups. It has social areas and a well-equipped commercial-sized kitchen. The building has been used for a number of community events. The old church was retained and adjoins the new one; it is used for children’s activities.
