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.

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 Pastoral Assistant, Max Marsh, and in September we’ll hear from our new Associate Priest and Chaplain for Kings College – Guys Campus, Rev’d James Craig.
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. Learn more about timing and signing up.
Meet Max Marsh
Max is our pastoral assistant and supports many areas of the church’s life and especially our student ministry, our community outreach in particular through the St George’s Festival. He assists with our Sunday School and our work with children and young people. He has a particular responsibility to encourage and support our volunteers.
I’m excited to be joining St George’s this year as your Pastoral Assistant. I am around the church most days so please join me for some tea and a chat! I grew up in Sheffield but moved to Southwark four years ago to study towards a degree in Drama and Performance at London South Bank University. In my spare time I enjoy going to the theatre and playing table-top games. I’m thrilled to be able to spend this year being able to serve students at the university I studied at along with being able to serve a unique and friendly wider community.
