St George’s is friendly and welcoming congregation. We are thankfully growing as new people move into the area and others hear about what’s going on. People of all ages, backgrounds and life experiences worship here. Some have lived and worshipped here for many years. We are developing a ministry to students and young professionals, many of whom are moving into the area. We particularly welcome children and have recently established a Sunday School for those of primary school age. We are particularly blessed by a good number of people from an African and Afro-Caribbean heritage.
Our Vision Statement is:
‘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. We are an open, diverse and inclusive community. 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.’
Our main weekly worship on Sunday at 11am is a Sung Eucharist and is quite traditional in form. We try hard to engage seriously with scripture in our preaching and reflection, and to pray and work for the needs of the world and especially our local community.. We seek to celebrate joyfully with a variety of musical styles – from traditional hymns and anthems to modern choruses and worship songs. Above all we aim to be welcoming and to give newcomers space and peace. The service is always followed by a chance to meet and chat over coffee and cake and often more!
