St. George's is a small, friendly, welcoming village church.  We are broadly Open Evangelical in tradition but we hold lightly to any specific label.  We have a range of modern and traditional services, a lively community programme for all ages, homegroups for study, and good connections with our school, our link church in Strood, and our Mission Partners in the UK and overseas.

 

From Sunday 18th April we will be returning to having face-to-face services in the church at 10.30am. These services will include communion and we will watch together our recorded service. We will be continuing to provide on-line recorded services as we know that many of the congregation will not be attending in person and everyone can still be part of our worship together. Our services will continue to be available here on the website and via the church's facebook page. 

 

Christian Aid Week 2021

Weald village has always shown a huge commitment to Christian Aid week with many events throughout and of course the coming together of the community. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions we are unable to do everything that we normally do and are unable to have the caravan on the green, so the plan is as follows:

  • Village Treasure Hunt - £5 per family - lots of fun questions to answer/things to find/ clues to solve - suitable for all ages.  Collect your question sheet from the footpath outside Southwood on Hurst Lane between 10-12 or 1-3 on Sunday 16th May and complete in your own time over the course of the week. If you can’t join on the Sunday, sheets will be available from the village shop from Monday 17th to Saturday 22nd May. A decorated post box will be outside the shop for the completed sheets until end of Saturday 22nd. There is a prize for the most correct answers.
  • Open Gardens & Plant Stall, Cream Teas and Cakes. Sunday 23rd May 2-5pm. 

    Click here for information about the gardens that will be open. Cream Teas will be available priced £5 each at the following locations, to enjoy between garden visits: a) Southwood on Hurst Lane, b) 4 Weald Close c) 7 Paiges Farm Close. Numbers will be restricted so please be patient. A plant stall will also be available at 7 Paiges Farm Close.

Our Online Streaming Appeal

We have launched an appeal to enable us to get the church set up so that we can live stream our services online. In order to do this we need to get the church set up with internet and also to purchase the appropriate cameras and equipment. We anticipate that this will cost around £15,000 and will link in with our existing PA/AV system. We are also trying to make sure that it is as simple to use as possible. We are excited by the possibility of being able to live stream our services which will enable those who are unable to attend to participate.

 

If you would like to donate towards the appeal, you can do so in the following ways: WIth cash or cheques (payable to 'St George's PCC' sent to: St George's Treasurer, 8 Hurst Farm Road, Weald, Sevenoaks TN14 6PW. By BACS - payment details on request to the Treasurer (please give name and address). When paying by BACS you will need to give a reference - please give your name followed by 'Streaming Appeal.' If you are a tax payer, for efficient giving, please fill in a Gift Aid form for this event which can be downloaded here, and email it to the Treasurer as per the above address. 

 

Community Hub

In view of the difficulties and isolation caused by the pandemic it has been proposed that a Community Hub be set up on a Tuesday morning in The Memorial Hall once all the restrictions have been lifted, hopefully toward the end of June. The Hub will serve tea, coffee and cake and provide an opportunity for anyone to come and have a chat in a welcoming environment. There will be an opportunity to talk through any issues with which anyone is having difficulty and be signposted for further support if needed. We hope this will be something for the whole community, for both men and women and for all ages.

We currently have several volunteers who have offered to be involved but more are needed as we would like this to be a weekly event. Please do contact either Nikky Goozee or Sarah Jones if you can help us by email: wellness@stgeorgesweald.co.uk

We would especially welcome any men who would like to be involved in this venture.

Thank you for your support.
