What's happening already at St. George's Church?

We are open each Sunday morning for a varied pattern of  worship.  Baptisms may take place, by arrangement, during the 9.15am service.  Unfortunately we are not able to offer weddings or funerals at St. George's

We are fortunate in benefiting from the wide spread of experience and understanding provided by our ordained and lay ministerial team.

We are a modern attractive church, within an Anglican school, with which we interact and support spiritually, morally and financially.

We are committed to home visits in times of illness, bereavement and outreach, especially to people who can no longer attend church because of infirmity.

We have groups for Uniformed Organisations.

Support is provided for our younger members, in the forms of  Crèche and Sunday School
