WHAT DO WE OFFER?
At St George’s there is a lively and growing congregation and we offer fellowship and a network of friends of all ages. There is a wide range of activities during the week for different groups, and our services aim to provide something for all age groups. Throughout the year there are many social events, together with outreach activities and courses. Prayer is always available to support and encourage.
We are a group of friends that together put our trust in God:
- Together seeking to form an adult faith in a confusing world;
- Encouraging each other in the fellowship of the world-wide Christian family, extending over twenty centuries;
- Guiding our children to grow in faith at each stage of their lives;
- Providing the village with a beautiful and well-maintained venue for public worship, private prayer and meditation.
