Cafe Church 10am 16th June

Cafe Church is relaxed, informal, interactive and good fun. Everyone is welcome to come along, especially suitable for families, although lots of people come who are on their own and older people too. The Cafe is in the Magdalene Room (the hall to the right hand side of the church building). With worship led by the band, prayer activities, tea and toast, fresh coffee, fruit, Cafe Church is engaging and uplifting.

Worship at Saint George’s every Sunday at 10am

If you are looking for somewhere to explore the Christian faith, somewhere to make new friends, somewhere to feel like you belong,  please come along any Sunday at 10am to Saint George’s Church.

There might be a folk band, a jazz pianist, guitars or a traditional organ leading the worship.  Who knows! There might be children dancing and waving streamers (and adults for that matter!) Apart from 3rd Sundays when it’s Cafe Church, there will almost certainly be Holy Communion as this is at the heart of who we are. At the heart of us is Jesus. Jesus is at the centre of everything we do and so we worship in the round with Jesus in our midst (and quite often a few toddlers too!)

On 3rd Sundays at 6.30pm we have a Celtic Holy Communion with folk music, pottery chalice, real bread and a reflection.

Christian Mindfulness Sunday 14th July 5-6pm

Come and discover the peace and tranquility of Christian Mindfulness in the beautiful surroundings of Saint George’s Lady Chapel. No experience necessary. Dr Barbara Mitra leads us through a series of mindful meditations with a focus on love and kindly awareness and words of hope and compassion from the Bible.

Service of First Holy Communion

What a joy and privilege it was to be part of this lovely service yesterday, when these five beautiful children took their first communion. How blessed we are at St George’s to witness the start of their Christian pilgrimage. I pray all of us at St George’s will encourage them and their families as we all learn together what it means to be Kingdom People.

Since 1997 the Church of England has allowed churches to admit children to Communion before Confirmation, Saint George’s Church adopted this option some years ago. and we now have a number of children from the age of 6 who, after a period of about 6 weeks preparation with the clergy, receive the sacraments.  13619853_732985130174008_3768344479391448686_n(1)

Coffee Morning to Raise Awareness of Ovarian Cancer – June 4th 10-11.30am

In the Magdalene Room (to the left of the church)
This is not a fund-raiser, it is to share information from the charity ‘Target Ovarian Cancer’ to help women be more aware of the symptoms, to improve diagnosis of a cancer that is often not recognised until it is too late. Early diagnosis improves outcomes, and women have a better chance of surviving longer.
 
The talk starts about 11am and if you want to come for coffee but don’t want to listen to the information you are welcome to sit in the lovely Quiet Garden with your tea or coffee.
