St George’s Church welcomes visitors. During more normal times, the Church is open from 9.30am until 3pm. (mornings only during school holidays). At the moment the Church is closed. See the calendar for details.

You can attend our Sunday services at 8am and 10am and the mid-week Eucharist at 10am on Wednesdays; however prior booking is required as numbers are restricted. See  HERE.

ST GEORGE’S AND YOU

We are producing a booklet about St George’s and the congregation……how we think of our church, what it means to us. Perhaps you were baptised or married here. You may remember significant moments or a ramble, a Parish lunch, an induction, some of the church shows. Perhaps some of the outreach of the church comes to mind, times when you have helped others or seen great changes. Just a line or two with a memory or thought about our church would be most welcome.

The booklet will be incorporated into our fundraising which we are trying to start again as we have lost so much due to the lockdown. For more information or to send contributions:
j.rice-oxley@stgeorges.church


CHURCH SHOP - STORAGE REQUIRED.
DOES ANYONE HAVE GARAGE SPACE TO OFFER FOR ITEMS FOR CHURCH CHARITY SHOP.
WE ARE HOPEFUL THAT THIS WILL TAKE PLACE TOWARDS THE END OF THE YEAR.
PLEASE CONTACT JANE RICE-OXLEY ON 02392 26357

ST GEORGE’S BOOK OF POEMS - 6th Edition - “Life Under Lockdown”
Now available to purchase to help raise funds for St George’s. Price £5
See Jane Rice-Oxley for your copy.

Scams and Tricksters - We have been warned by the Diocese that Churches and their congregations are being targeted by fraudsters, so please be alert. The latest scam is an email, purportedly from the Vicar or some other trusted Church Official, asking the recipient to contribute to a secret and discreet gift collection for a church member by purchasing Amazon Vouchers, and sending the voucher codes in reply.

Any church fundraising activity will have appeared in the Sunday Bulletin, you can view both current and past copies on the church website HERE.

If you get a text offering a COVID vaccine, beware, this may also be a scam. The link to book should take you to book.nhs.me and you will NOT be asked for credit card, password or any personal details other than, possibly, your postcode and date of birth.

Never expose bank or credit card details in response to an email or on the telephone to anyone who has called you, and be suspicious if they suggest you call back - you can still get caught out. Never open an email attachment from an unexpected, suspicious or unknown source.

If in any doubt forward emails, or describe and detail any other approaches (e.g., by telephone/text) to: webmaster@stgeorges.church  and we will advise if it is a scam. Do this before doing anything else!
