This evening there will be a Ceilidh in the Church. With Elisabeth Witter as Caller and a fabulous folk band. If you’ve never been to a Ceilidh before, think Barn Dance and think ‘all ages’. Even little ones can join in, as well as not so little ones, slightly more mature ones, and the very wise ones! Even teenagers will join in so it’s a wonderful family event. And those who can’t join in or who prefer not to, will enjoy watching the fun and laughing when it all goes wrong! The more the merrier there is no limit.
The tickets are £3 each, or £6 for a family, and we invite everyone to bring one item of food that can be shared, for example a bowl of salad, a plate of sandwiches, a quiche or pizza, cold meats or cheeses. Or a cake or dessert.
There is a licensed bar with beer, lager, wine, even Gin & Tonic, as well as soft drinks. The Ceilidh is a well loved event in Saint George’s social calendar. Why watch Strictly when you can come and dance for real yourself!
This Sunday we worship Cafe style in the Magdalene Room to the right of the church. This informal gathering starts at 10am, with the worship band leading the worship, breakfast, fresh coffee, activities for all, and a child friendly space for babies and toddlers. This month we are looking at the thorny question of our money. What does Jesus say? The service usually lasts just over an hour and is relaxed and informal. You will find a warm and friendly welcome.
Throughout history there have been groups of Christians who have discovered the beauty of a life lived on God’s terms. The Celtic Christians of the early middle ages was one such group.
They understood from Scripture and from their own life experience that God was not someone we bend to our wants and desires, but rather someone who was beyond our control. Something we would need to pursue rather than subdue. In this Celtic Communion service we will reflect on how we listen to God and why it is essential to spend time being still and being aware of his presence within us.
Before the service at 5pm, there is a session of Christian Mindfulness in the Lady Chapel which provides a perfect space to prepare for celebrating communion.

Who are the 5 people you know who most need to know life in all ts fullness? Pray for them every day May 30th – June 9th 2019
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.
If you are looking for somewhere to explore the Christian faith, somewhere to make new friends, somewhere to feel like you belong, you will receive a warm welcome at St 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 at 10am 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 also have a Celtic Holy Communion with folk music, pottery chalice, real bread and a reflection rather than a sermon.
