Welcome to the Parish of St George the Martyr in Southwark. Please feel free to take a moment to find out about the people who worship here and the many things happening each week or to get in touch with us if you want to know more.
We are a community of Christians meeting regularly to worship God, to grow in God’s love and to share the good news of Jesus Christ with our neighbours. In sharing his love, we try to meet some of the needs of the many different people living together in this place and to build community here. We are an open, diverse and inclusive community.
Alpha begins on Tuesday 27th September at 7pm!
This autumn we are running an Alpha course at St George’s. Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith which has been running for over twenty years. In that time, over 27 million people worldwide have taken the course. It is an opportunity to explore questions of faith in a relaxed and conversational environment, and huge numbers of people have found it an invaluable opportunity to explore the meaning of life. To enquire or to register, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

New Faces at St George the Martyr
St George the Martyr is lucky to be receiving a number of new staff members over the next few months. Please see a short introduction below from our new Associate Priest and Chaplain for Kings College – Guys Campus, Rev’d Jim Craig. His licencing will be celebrated at a service at Guy’s Chapel on 29 September at 5.15pm.
Meet Rev’d Jim Craig
Jim is the chaplain to students and staff at the Guy’s Medical School which is part of Kings College, London. He is associate priest at St George’s with particular responsibility for our work with students and younger adults and our ministry through the arts.
I’m new to the area and have just arrived as the new Chaplain to Guy’s Campus, King’s College London. When I’m not creating havoc in the brand new chaplaincy room at Guy’s I’ll be helping coordinate the student outreach at St George’s. Having spent my previous 11 years working in Gateshead my family and I are busy acclimatising to the London weather and looking for purveyors of good Geordie grub like Savaloy Dips and Pease Pudding. If you’re a student at Guy’s please do drop in on the chaplaincy team when you’ve got a spare moment. You’ll find us in Henriette Raphael House next to Student Services.
Life at St George the Martyr
Give thanks to the Lord, who is my guide;
you Lord, who shows me the path to righteousness;
you, who helps me to discern your Word;
whose Spirit empowers me!
Give me drive and determination in troubled times.
For in times of trouble, I stumble and lose heart,
Yet you are beside me –
You take away the stumbling block
and strike down the barriers that keep me from your love.
I give thanks that you seek to stay my hand when I act rashly;
that you seek to give me patience in my anger;
that, in my weakness; in my humanity,
you still show me the Spirit of your love.
I give thanks to the Lord,
that you hear me in my rejoicing;
yet you seek me out when my burden is heavy
and lift me up
As I cry out in the wilderness,
you trouble yourself when I am in anguish –
for your love knows no bounds.
Teach me, guide me, and fill me with that same love,
that, in all my unworthiness,
I may still know your care and support;
and that I may know that I am a child of God.
‘My Psalm’ is written by Jane Mogford, Verger and member of St George the Martyr.
