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.

 

All of our services can be found on our sunday services page as well as on our facebook page. Our service from sunday can be found here as well as on our facebook page. The film that Mandy talks about in the service this week can be seen on the left of the page below.

 

St George's will be back in the church from Sunday 13th September at 10.30am. If you would like to attend please let us know via email. We will also be continuing with our online services as we know that not everyone will be able to or want to come back at the moment. 

 

A Prayer for This New Season

Dear Father,

Fill us with The Spirit of wisdom and revelation so that we may discern

what you are calling us to be, and to do.

Work within our imaginations to forge a vision for this new Season. 

Help us to be willing to keep on asking and waiting on you until we see clearly. 

Give us confidence that a good Father loves to talk to His children

and we can hear your voice.

Strengthen us with faith and courage to banish all fear and anxiety,

knowing that the same power that raised Jesus from the dead is at work in us. 

Teach us to access the wealth of the inheritance that we have through Christ. 

Protect us from being knocked off course, or pulled in other directions;

Instead, give us the focus and commitment to affirm Jesus as the leader and source of everything needed in The Church. 

May we see your Kingdom come in this place, transforming our lives and our community through your love.

In the name of Jesus,

Amen.

 

All Souls Service

We would like to invite you to St. George’s on the afternoon of Sunday 1st November.  Usually this is a time for us to have our traditional ‘All Souls’ service where there is an opportunity to hear the name of a loved one read out and to light a candle in memory of them.  Due to the pandemic, we have decided to do things differently this year. As we do not want to have to enforce limits on the number of people that could attend this event we have decided to offer the sacred space of St. George’s within the time frame of 2.30pm-5pm,  inviting families to choose to come and go when they wish, ensuring that we are all mindful of covid regulations and social distancing. 

 

On this afternoon, we want to create an atmosphere that will enable families to enjoy the peace, some gentle recorded music, to light a candle and leave it at the altar and to make use of a couple of prayer stations designed to help honour their loved ones and record their names. Some may wish to pop in for just five minutes; others may want to spend much longer to sit and reflect.  A few set prayers will be said on the hour and half hour, and I will be available during the afternoon for prayer.

 

It would be helpful for us to have an idea of numbers (email: info@stgeorgesweald.co.uk), but please don’t feel that if you haven’t booked in that you cannot come.   We want people to come and make use of the space and to receive comfort as we seek to remember together those that we love but see no longer. 

 

Opening the Church

We are now allowed to open our churches for private prayer. Following guidance from the Diocese we have completed the relevant needs assessment and the church will be open from 9am-4pm on Thursdays and Sundays. Please do watch the video posted at the side of this page where Revd. Mandy explains what it is going to be like inside the church and what needs to happen in order to keep all of us safe and well.

 

You are welcome to go into the church during these times for private prayer, but we also recognise that many people are shielding, or may not want to risk visiting the church, and that is OK as well.
