Welcome to St George's!
If you are a student and you live, work or study in the area then you are especially welcome at St George’s. We are a diverse 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.
Feel at home
Being a student can be great fun but also demanding and challenging; we can find ourselves away from those we love and our homes. Studying online during the pandemic, many students have felt isolated and found it difficult to get to know people.
On Sundays we gather as a group of people of diverse ages and backgrounds. Our worship tends to be quite traditional but friendly and informal, with a wide range of musical styles and thoughtful and challenging preaching. We are united not just by our worship but also by our lively meals together, and the service of one another and the community. As our church family continues to grow, we welcome you to join us on our journey.
Student life at St George's
Being a student is a great time to explore some of life’s big questions – What’s it all for? What really matters to me? What do I want to do with my life? And through our groups, study and worship we hope to share in thinking about these questions with you.
St George's doesn't set out to be a majority 'student' church, but we do set out to be a church that welcomes and supports students as part of our diverse family - including through specific student groups and activities where there is need.
Volunteering can be a great way to take a break from your studies, get to know people and build your CV.
We run a number of regular events serving our rich and varied local community and since lockdown we have been operating The Borough Food Cooperative from our crypt, providing affordable, high-quality, nutritious food available to the whole community. The Coop is run largely by volunteers and we welcome any students who would llike to join us! Please contact Adam (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the Parish office (email@example.com) to find out more.
Fr Jonathan, Fr Rob and Jo also serve as chaplains at London South Bank University. They are available for pastoral care and support and are happy to talk to you about anything you like, whether about relationships, exploring faith or practical things like housing, studies, jobs and money. Or if you just fancy a friendly chat or listening ear! You can contact them by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
We have an evolving programme of groups (e.g. Bible Study), drop-ins (online and in person) and events (we recently held an Interfaith Forum and are planning a walk to local places of worship). To stay up to date with our latest events, sign up for our newsletter by emailing email@example.com; join us on Microsoft Teams or follow us on Instagram (@lsbu.chaplaincy), Facebook (@lsbu.chaplaincy) or Twitter (@lsbu_chaplaincy).
