At St George’s we try to be welcoming without being overwhelming. We want people to feel they can join an existing group or just come to worship on a Sunday. We are open-minded and exploring in our Christianity. We have members from a great range of church backgrounds – high Anglican to evangelical. This is why there is a mix of worship styles within the one Eucharist.
While all public worship is suspended throughout the Church of England, we are publishing resources for private worship, or worship shared over the internet with others, on this page as we become aware of them. One-off prayer and worship events will be published in the News section of our website and on our Facebook page.

Pray as You Go
Each day a short piece of music, a lesson, a homily and a prayer are published by this website. It lasts about ten minutes. You can download the whole week as a zipped mp3 file to play on your phone, in the car or wherever you are usually able to listen to music or podcasts.
Hymn of the Day
This page chooses a hymn every day, displayed like a page in the hymn book, and you just press play to get the music to sing along to. Lots of hymns to choose from if you’d rather choose your own.
