Welcome to the parish church of St George the Martyr in Southwark. We hope this website gives you a good sense of all that is going on. Our Twitter and Facebook pages are also good places for up-to-date information about upcoming events. Please get in touch with us if you have any specific queries.
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 takes place every Sunday at 11am, and is attended by a people of a whole range of ages and backgrounds. We are always delighted to welcome visitors and newcomers. It is a Sung Eucharist (also known as Holy Communion or Mass). We seek joyful worship, and use a variety of traditional hymns and modern songs as we celebrate our Christian life together. We seek to engage seriously with the Bible in our preaching, and our prayers reflect our concerns for the world and the local community. The service is always followed by a chance to meet others and chat over coffee and cake.
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.
The Parish of St George the Martyr, with St Alphege and St Jude, takes the safeguarding and care of children and vulnerable adults very seriously. Further information about this can be found on our Safeguarding page.
