We listen to global issues and do what we can locally. There are numerous ways we can care for other people and the environment – too numerous to list!
We support everyone who makes a positive impact. One of the best ways to do this is to join current initiatives. Members of the congregation are involved with Arocha, Christian Aid, Love Justice, Mother’s Union, The Myriad Centre, The Quiet Garden Movement, Traidcraft, Renew Wellbeing, Through the Roof, Spiritual Direction, Worcester Food Bank and many, many more! Talk to us about what you might like to do because it’s highly likely that someone in the congregation has similar interests and we can put you in contact with them.
We also have groups of people pioneering eco-church, running Open the Book, Whinston Court Ministry, Eco-Church and the Friends of Saint George’s organise fundraising events.
Are you exploring a call to ministry or religious life? The diocese can support you and offer educational training. For example, if you are between 18-30 years old, there are opportunities to join the Diocese Ministry Experience Scheme. To learn more about discerning a vocation to ministry, speak to a member of the leadership team.
Open the Book
Having begun in September 2008, Open the Book is a fantastic opportunity to dramatise Bible stories for the pupils at Saint George’s School. A band of volunteers performs a short play to the children once a fortnight, with rehearsals taking place on the alternate Mondays. This is very much valued by the school as part of their collective worship and loved by the children. Let us know if you would like to be part of the Open the Book team.
Whinston Court Ministry
Whinston Court is a designed for independent living within a supportive community and it is an honour for us to share time with the residents, their families and staff.
We visit on the first Wednesday in the month at 11am and we also join together for Christmas Carols.
Our meetings combine singing, listening and quiet conversation and we share the eucharist.
You are most welcome to join us and if you would like more information please contact Rev Peter Davies.
The Friends of Saint Georges are a group of people who raise funds and support the work and fabric of the church.
Do you have a sense of God’s calling?
Some people hear a specific calling on their lives that leads them to a vocational life of ministry and service in different environments. Individuals often feel called whilst they are children or youngsters and it is common for adults to have a sense of calling to their chosen career.
Ministry Experience Scheme
Worcester is fortunate enough to have a year long Ministry Experience Scheme for the 18-30s. It is an opportunity to discern God’s call with the help of a mentor, whilst rolling up your sleeves and getting stuck into real-life Christian ministry in a range of the contexts around the diocese urban, suburban and rural.
If you are interested in any of these or for opportunities to learn more about the Christian faith and discerning your vocation, please speak to Rev Jo or one of the other members of the leadership team.
