Your Church Wardens have, decided that, due to the increased volatility of the Covid-19 virus, it will be sensible to suspend all of our church Services now, over the Christmas period, and for as long after that until it is felt safe to recommence. It is hoped that the situation will improve before too long but, being aware that the number of local cases has increased quite rapidly, it would seem to be the best plan in order to avoid unnecessary risk.

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 Not Open for Private Prayer Until Further Notice

We have vacant spots for sponsors to light up St George’s for Christmas and the New Year. 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.

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.
