Weekly Worship in the Benefice

Our services are gradually returning to more normal patterns. A weekly email is sent out with up-to-date details. You can register to receive this email with the church office.

We are finding many people are – understandably – very stressed at this time, and many are thinking about spirituality, contemplation and life’s biggest challenges. If you are not familiar with, or used to church, then please know that you would be very welcome to join us for any of the services or discussions..

August 2021 – here is how you can join us in worship, reflection and contemplation:


Sunday Services

St George’s holds two services of public worship each Sunday:

8.00am – said Holy Communion

9.30am – Parish Communion, including singing of hymns. Children’s groups meet during this service during term time.
