Who is Jesus?

Who is Jesus?

Jesus once asked his closest followers, ‘Who do people say that I am?’  Here are some modern-day answers to that question.

Who do you think Jesus is?  A great moral teacher?  A fraud?  Make-believe?

Jesus said ‘I have come that you may have life, and have it to the full: life in all its fullness, abundant life.’

And there is enough of that new life for every single person who has ever lived, and ever will.  That includes you.  The life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is God’s way of saying, ‘I love you.’ This is the most important thing you could ever hear, and it will change your life for ever, and for the better, if you take it to heart and follow him.

If you would like to know more, contact Rev Jo 01905 780200.  We would love to meet you and talk to you about Jesus, and help you come to know him for yourself, as we do. We hold Pilgrim courses throughout the year where people are learning more about Jesus and coming to know the joy of a relationship with him.


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)
