St. George’s Church is back in action. We are open for private prayer every Wednesday.
All are welcome!
Full details below.
For the time being, Little Dragons, Friday Club, Friday Coffee, The Wednesday Tea Service and Bell-Ringing, must all remain suspended, but we hope to resume as soon as government advice allows.
The Church is Open for Private Prayer
St. George’s Church is open for private prayer and meditation once a week: on Wednesday mornings from 10:00 to 11:30. The West End Room is set out with chairs, candles and low background music to give some undisturbed peace and quiet.
We do all we can to ensure the safety of visitors. We ask them to provide contact details, to wear a face-mask, to maintain social distancing, and to sanitise their hands before entering.
At least one volunteer steward will be present nearby all times.
If you feel that you would benefit from the opportunity to pray in peace and perhaps light a candle, then feel free to call in when you are passing. If you know anyone who may benefit from visiting St. George’s for private prayer, then please let them know.
These arrangements may have to change in line with Government policy, in which case, details will be posted on this website.
You can pay in your sponsorship or gifts via the PayPal Button below which accepts PayPal AND credit/debit cards. Alternatively check with the congregation round-robin on the subject for the church Bank Details to make direct bank transfers.
Light up the Church over the Christmas Period
We have vacant spots for sponsors to light up St George’s for Christmas. Perhaps in memory of a loved one, or just to make the church look good and stand proud through the night. £20.00 per night.
For booking and payment details phone 01743 791069.

It is designed for the last two weeks of November and the beginning of December, and is to cover those weeks when we will not be able to worship in Church. Find it here:
