The Church is Open for Private Prayer
St. George’s Church is open for private prayer and meditation twice a week: on Wednesday mornings from 10:00 to 11:30 and on Friday afternoons from 4:00 to 5:00. 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.
