About Us

A welcoming, inclusive church in Crosby area of Scunthorpe.

Vicar: Reverend Julie Wearing

Service times: Sunday 10.45am. (Online only on second and fourth Sunday)

St George's serves the Crosby area of Scunthorpe. The church entrance and car park is on Digby Street, but most people recognise the church location as Frodingham Road.

St George's is a welcoming church that has been at the heart of the community since the 1920's. We are proud to be an Inclusive Church within a diverse, multicultural community. Being inclusive means welcoming all people, without prejudice or judgement in the name of Jesus Christ. St George's is a place where everyone can feel respected and at home, regardless of gender, sexuality, wealth, race, ability or age. We do whatever we can to join in with God’s work of transformation and hope, especially where people feel excluded, marginalised or misunderstood, in the church as well as in wider society. We’re on a journey, why not come along?

We value the shape of Anglican liturgy and weave in contemporary and creative expressions of prayer and use a mixture of traditional and modern music on a Sunday. Our ethos and preaching is liberal/radical, with a strong emphasis on inclusion, social justice and care for the community and planet earth. We don't expect or ask people to conform to a rigid set of beliefs or values when they visit our church, so come as you are, sit with us during our services and join in, if you wish. Stay afterwards for a lovely Fairtrade cuppa and feel free to ask any questions. We're very pleased to have your company.

The Church is available for Baptisms (Christenings), Weddings and Marriage/Civil Partnership Blessings and Thanksgivings, most of which can be arranged at our office on a Wednesday morning after 10.00 a.m. If you would like to hold a funeral service at St George's prior to cremation or burial, please tell your Funeral Director and they will make all the arrangements with us.

The Church Office is located inside the Crosby One Community Centre (at the rear of St George's Church). It is open most Wednesdays from 10.00 a.m. to 11.30 a.m. If you cannot make it at this time, send us a message and we will get back to you to make alternative arrangements. (Please note, the church office is not open at this time due to Covid19 restrictions).

We really do welcome anyone from our community to visit the church or join our services and we welcome your comments and feedback too.

St George's is a member of Inclusive Church and One Body One Faith and we are longstanding Fairtrade Church.
