Weald St George's 10km Run

For many years, St. George's has been running a 10km event and a 2km fun run in September. Prior to the run, a service is held on the village Green. Unfortuntaley we have had to cancel the run this year although we hope to hold a virtual event and will post more information as we have it.

St. George's has an active outreach programme, both locally and internationally through its mission partners. Examples of our outreach activities include:

Village Walk

We run a monthly village walk on the 1st Saturday of the month. The walk starts at the Community Shop at 09.45 and is usually for around 90 minutes finishing back at the shop in time for coffee. 

 

All are welcome.

Christian Aid Week

Every year, St. George's and the village of Weald celebrate Christian Aid week. Events are held throughout the week with tea and coffee being served on the Green daily. It is a great opportunity to have fun and raise money for Christian Aid. 

 

Update for 2020.

Even though we were all unable to meet up over the week there were still some events enjoyed. The hanging baskets were very popular with over £300 raised and the dog walk map was an excellent way of still providing the dogs with a walk! We have also seen some delicious cream teas being enjoye din our garden (watch this space for some photos). Thank you for continuing to support the charity even though we were unable to meet up physically. You can continue to donate by going th Christian Aids website and donating on line. We won't have a total from Weald available but I know that whatever we have been able to raise will provide essential support so thank you.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

At St. George's we have a Prayer Shawl Ministry. Shawls are made by members of the church and distributed to those in need as appropriate. Shawls are given to those who are sick, bereaved, going through challenging times etc. and each is given through prayer. If you know of someone who you think could benefit from a Shawl or would like to be involved in this Ministry please contact Stephanie.

Food Bank

St. George's contribute regularly to the local food bank - Sevenoaks Loves and Fishes. The Loaves and Fishes Foodbank operates from St John’s Church Hall.  It supports up to 40 families with young children by giving them a large bag of non-perishable food every week of the year.  We collect non-perishable food and there is a box for collection at the back of the church.
