Church Groups

Living in Faith Every Day

 

A fortnightly discussion group bringing together a diverse group of people from the wider St George’s community. Over refreshments, we explore how our worship on Sunday impacts on the rest of our lives. Recent topics of discussion have included ‘Is ambition Christian?’, ‘Is the Bible relevant today?’, ‘Is death the meaning of life?’, and ‘What is the point of the clergy?’. Fortnightly Wednesdays at 7pm. For more information, please contact Fr Sam

Alpha Course

In January we are running an Alpha course at St George’s. Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith which has been running for over twenty years. In that time, over 27 million people worldwide have taken the course. It is an opportunity to explore questions of faith in a relaxed and conversational environment, and huge numbers of people have found it an invaluable opportunity to explore the meaning of life. To read more about the course, see try.alpha.org. If you would like to know more, or to sign up for the course, please email Fr Sam. We look forward to hearing from you!
 

 

Music Group

Our music group helps lead our worship at our Sung Eucharist. We meet to practice – and learn simple singing technique – on Mondays at 6pm in Church.   No previous singing experience is required or the ability to read music. Ask any member of the group it is great fun and very encouraging! To find out more please Jonathan Pix at pixietune12@gmail.com.

The Godwine Choir

For more experienced singers who are comfortable sight-reading, the Godwine Choir is a group of mainly young singers who give regular classical concerts. They rehearse at St George’s on Wednesdays at 6.30pm and occasionally sing at Sunday services. If you are interested in finding out more about their concerts or joining then please contact Alex Davan Wetton at alexdw@hotmail.co.uk

 

Sunday Schools

Our Sunday Schools meet on most Sunday’s during ‘term time’ during the main Sunday service.  It is split by age group:

Diddy Disciples - Worship and bible study geared towards children (primary school age) takes place every Sunday during the main sung Eucharist

Young Disciples - Our teenage and secondary schools aged group also takes place on most Sundays during the Sung Eucharist at 11am

Young adults

A group of young adults and students meets once a month to have supper together and discuss something topical. We do discuss some serious issues but its not a serious occasion. It's friendly, fun and welcoming. Meetings are usually the last Wednesday of the month. Please contact Fr Jim to find out more.

We also prepare teenagers and adults for the Sacrament of Confirmation. This is normally done in groups. Please contact Fr Jonathan for further details.
