St. George's is a small, friendly, welcoming village church.  We are broadly Open Evangelical in tradition but we hold lightly to any specific label.  We have a range of modern and traditional services, a lively community programme for all ages, homegroups for study, and good connections with our school, our link church in Strood, and our Mission Partners in the UK and overseas.

 

All of our services can be found on our sunday services page as well as on our facebook page. Our service from sunday can be found here as well as on our facebook page. The film that Mandy talks about in the service this week can be seen on the left of the page below.

 

St George's will be back in the church from Sunday 13th September at 10.30am. If you would like to attend please let us know via email. We will also be continuing with our online services as we know that not everyone will be able to or want to come back at the moment. 

 

APCM

On Monday 5th October we will be holding our Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM). This will be over zoom so that those who are still shielding can be part of it. All those who are on the electoral roll may attend and if you would like to do so, please let us know by emailing us and we will send you the link nearer the time. As this has been delayed and we will be looking back at 2019, the report section will be brief but we will be considering the future together and taking questions, so please feel that you can be part of this meetoing if you'd like to be.

 

Opening the Church

We are now allowed to open our churches for private prayer. Following guidance from the Diocese we have completed the relevant needs assessment and the church will be open from 9am-4pm on Thursdays and Sundays, starting with Sunday 21st June. Please do watch the video posted at the side of this page where Revd. Mandy explains what it is going to be like inside the church and what needs to happen in order to keep all of us safe and well. In summary:

 

  • The main door will be open from 9am-4pm on Thursdays and Sundays
  • When you enter the church you will be asked to sanitise your hands and then complete the sign-in sheet with your name, date and phone number – in order to do this you need to take your own pen with you so please remember to do this. You will then be asked to take a card which you will leave in the pew where you have been sitting so that we know where people have been and we can ensure that it is cleaned properly, and that no-one else sits there before it has been cleaned. So please do not sit where you see a card.
  • Pews have been taped off and you are asked to only use the areas that are not taped. Please maintain the 2 metre distance rules as per the Government COVID-19 guidelines if anyone else is in the church at the same time as you. 
  • All children must be supervised and should not be in the church on their own, or allowed to go into areas, including pews, that have been taped off.
  • Please do not touch or use any books, including the Bible on the lectern – if you want to read a bible you need to take your own. 
  • The chancel, church rooms, vestry, and toilets are all out of bounds so there will be no kitchen or toilet facilities.
  • Finally, the church is open for private prayer only, so please do not arrange to meet anyone there. 

 

You are welcome to go into the church during these times for private prayer, but we also recognise that many people are shielding, or may not want to risk visiting the church, and that is OK as well.
