Weald Community Shop and Cafe

by St George's Webmaster

As you will know, the Weald Community Shop and Cafe has been up and running since the beginning of August and doing a fantastic job. Until recently, it didn’t have a base to call its own, using the Memorial Hall and St George’s Church Hall and Rooms at various points as the weeks went by. Great news, though – on 20 September the shop opened up in its new home, The Cabin, a converted shipping container situated next to the Memorial Hall. The shop and cafe is run by volunteers, headed up by Ian and Linda Walker, and is open every day from 8.00 am to 12.00 noon. If you’d like to find out more about it, there is a Facebook page, and Mandy has updated the short film that she made, which you can view here:

To clear up any confusion that may have arisen regarding the Advent Labyrinth at St George’s, there is one more chance to visit, if you come along this evening, Wednesday 7 December, at any time from 6.00 to 9.00 pm.

Advent Labyrinth at St George’s

by St George's Webmaster

There will be an Advent Labyrinth at St George’s at the beginning of December. It will be open on Monday 5 December from 6.00 to 8.00 pm, Tuesday 6 December from 10.00 am to 12.00 noon and also from 6.00 pm to 8.00 pm, and on Wednesday 7 December from 10.00 am to 12.00 noon and again from 6.00 pm to 8.00 pm. Everyone is welcome to come along at any point during the hours when it’s open, to take some time out from hectic schedules and refocus thoughts at this exciting but busy time of year. As Marilyn Hontz says in her book Listening for God, “… time alone with the Lord is not an obligation, but an incredible opportunity. It is never a duty for God to spend time with you.” Do give it a try.
