Morning Services: 9:15am and 11am
Our morning congregations are for all ages and we cater for those who are 0-90+. We have children’s church and crèche at both services and the children leave for their activities in George’s Place (28A St Mary’s St) after the opening songs and prayers. Our music is contemporary in style led by a band and there is also an appreciation of classic Christian songs and hymns. We always aim to explain and apply a passage from the Bible in a relevant way as a part of our gathering. Prayer ministry is available and we celebrate Holy Communion on the second Sunday of each month.
On the first Sunday of each month we have an interactive all age service where the children and adults stay together for the whole gathering. The baptism of children often takes place at this monthly service.
Evening Service: 6.30pm
Our evening service is a spiritual home for our teenagers, for those who like to come a second time on a Sunday, our 20s and 30s, and for many who serve in their village congregations in the morning who come for refreshment, encouragement and the Bible teaching. There is a more relaxed feel than the morning. Our Sunday Knights (14-18) meet after the service in the North Transept. Music is again contemporary in style, prayer ministry is available and Holy Communion is celebrated on the fourth Sunday of the month.
REVIVE: 6.30pm on the second Sunday of the month
The basic format follows a typical New Wine style event with an extended time of corporate worship, followed by time for God’s word and ending with a response time and invitation for prayer ministry. The service should be no longer than a normal evening gathering and we will aim to finish around 7:45pm, but as always leave room for those who would like to stay a little longer for ministry and prayer as others share hospitality. From time to time we will look to invite guest speakers to come to preach at this service. Our prayer is that REVIVE will add to the variety of corporate worship gatherings that we currently experience at St George’s and give an opportunity for those who have enjoyed the New Wine format on summer conferences to experience the same kind of thing at St George’s.
Holy Communion: 8am on the first and third Sunday of the month
This traditional service meets in the chancel of St George’s Church on the first and third Sunday of the month. We follow the Book of Common Prayer, and there is normally no music. Every three months this congregation enjoy Sunday breakfast together after the service in George’s Place.
