Following the government’s advice to avoid all unnecessary social contact, the Church of England asked churches to suspend all services and groups until further notice. However, it has now been announced that churches can resume corporate services from the 1st week in July. Not all churches will be able to open their doors on this date because of the need to make adjustments to manage risk. We are planning to open for our first church service on Sunday 5th July. Read this post for more details.
In the mean time, here’s what’s happening at St George’s Church:-
We will still hold a church service on Sunday. The service will be recorded and posted on our website. We invite you to join us in prayer for our country on Sundays at 10.30am.
Care for Others
We are trying to keep in touch with others by the phone and email. If people need practical assistance and don’t have family or friends to help, we will do what we can to help. Please contact us.
Praying for People
We continue to pray for the needs of our community at our Central Prayer Meet, which is virtual. We welcome prayer requests from anyone and pray for all those who get in touch.
We will be experimenting with hosting midweek groups online, including our prayer meeting, home group and Rooted youth group using Zoom. Contact the office for more details.
Supporting Food Bank
We are collecting for the children of families receiving food packages from the local. To give paper, craft materials, school supplies or money, contact Rosemary on 020 8640 8853
Funerals are difficult times, particularly during the current restrictions. We are available to take services at the crematorium. We will do what we can to provide care over the phone and support families through the process. Please contact the number below.
