Our Christmas Pledge Tree
As we all know, this is the season for giving (even Scrooge finally worked this out!) and St. George’s Church building is nearing its centenary anniversary and consequently needs a lot of maintenance! So please try to make a donation by adding your name to one of the red tags decorating the tree in the porch. Target number one will be to refurbish the restroom in the Church Hall which we are sure you will agree deserves a bit of TLC!
