The scriptures teach us that the church is the body of Christ and that we all have gifts and talents which we can use to build each other up. As God's people it is normal to gather together regularly to worship God, to pray, to serve each other and to grow in faith as we learn about Jesus from the bible.
A Christian who is not a part of a church is like a fish out of water or a coal out of a fire. The bible warns us that they will quickly dry up and go cold in their love for God. To this end, many of us meet together, not only on Sundays, but also in small groups during the week to understand God's word in the bible and support one another. If you would like to join one of our small groups or want to find out more about the Christian faith, please get in touch.
Jesus teaches us that, as Christians, we should show the love of God to all people, indeed Peter writes in his first letter, 'Live such good lives.... they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.'
Below is a taste of the things we do to serve our community. We also run a number of regular activities for families and children.
Every Monday morning in the church, St George's runs a free drop in from 10 am. This is open to everyone. Many come along for a cup of tea or coffee and a biscuit and to find a safe place to get to know others from the community.
There are always people there who are willing to sit down with you quietly and listen to whatever is on your mind and, if you wish, pray with you.
