Welcome to the Parish of St George the Martyr in Southwark. Please feel free to take a moment to find out about the people who worship here and the many things happening each week or to get in touch with us if you want to know more.
We are a community of Christians meeting regularly to worship God, to grow in God’s love and to share the good news of Jesus Christ with our neighbours. In sharing his love, we try to meet some of the needs of the many different people living together in this place and to build community here. We are an open, diverse and inclusive community.
Our main weekly worship on Sunday at 11am is a Sung Eucharist and is quite traditional in form. We try hard to engage seriously with scripture in our preaching and reflection, and to pray and work for the needs of the world and especially our local community. We seek to celebrate joyfully with a variety of musical styles – from traditional hymns and anthems to modern choruses and worship songs. Above all we aim to be welcoming and to give newcomers space and peace. The service is always followed by a chance to meet and chat over coffee and cake and often more!
We believe in inclusive Church - church which does not discrimate, on any level, on grounds of economic power, gender, mental health, physical ability, race or sexuality. We believe in Church which welcomes and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ: which is scriptually faithful: which seeks to proclaim the Gospel afresh for each generation; and which, in the power of the Holy Spirit, allows all people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Jesus Christ. www.inclusive-church.org.uk
