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. Our Twitter and Facebook pages are also good places for up-to-date information about all that is going on here!
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.
Our main weekly worship on Sunday at 11am is a Sung Eucharist and is quite traditional in form. We seek to celebrate joyfully with a variety of musical styles – from traditional hymns and anthems to modern choruses and worship songs. We try hard to engage seriously with scripture in our preaching and reflection, and pray for the needs of our world and local community. Above all we aim to be welcoming and to give newcomers space and peace. The service is always followed by a chance to meet others and chat over coffee and cake, and often more!
We are an open, diverse and inclusive community - a 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.
