There is nearly always something going on at St. George’s!
Wednesday 26 February at 19:30. Ash Wednesday
A Wednesday at St. George’s is our traditional day for an Evening Prayer service and this year it will coincide with Ash Wednesday and the first day of Lent.
Ash Wednesday derives its name from the tradition of painting repentance ashes in the form of a cross on the foreheads of worshippers at the corresponding special service. These ashes were traditionally prepared from the incineration of the palm leaves used to decorate the Church at the previous year’s Palm Sunday service.
Friday 6 and Saturday 7 March. Art exhibition in the Church Hall
Saturday 21 March: Jumble and Book Sale. 11:00 – 14:00
Lots of bargains to be found in good quality second hand clothes, books, toys, bric-à-brac and much more.
Do you have any “don’t know what to do with” gifts, for example, from Christmas, that could be good for raffle and tombola prizes? If so, please contact Angela.
Monday 6 April at 12:00. Chrism Mass 2020
The oils to be used for chrism, anointing the sick and dying and for those being baptised during the coming year are blessed by the Bishop during this Service. Attending clergy, from most of the parishes in our Archdeaconry and some beyond, take away with them small phials of the precious oils.
While fundamentally a Service for the Clergy and Readers of our Archdeaconry, members of the congregation at St. George’s are most welcome to attend. It is something quite spiritually moving and different!
Sunday April 19 – St. George’s Church AGM
Saturday June 6 – Summer Bazaar
