Your Parish Needs YOU!  …Don’t forget to join the Electoral Roll.

Every Church in the country has an Electoral Roll (rather like the Council’s Electoral Roll, which allows you to vote in elections, amongst other things).  The Church’s Electoral Roll has to be drawn up from scratch every six years, which happens to be this year.  To be on the ER you need to be over the age of 16 and have been baptised.  Being on the Roll allows you to play a part in the decision-making at St George’s; to vote at APCMs, be elected to the PCC.  There will be application forms at the back of the Church for the next few weeks, at coffee after the 09.30 service, or from the church office.  The …

Celebrate our wonderfully mysterious, dragon-slaying patron saint, St George, at our Patronal Evensong on Sunday 22nd April.

The history of St George is shrouded in legend, but the story goes that the fiesty young knight was riding through Libya when he encountered a fearsome beast living in a swamp on the outskirts of a city.  The beast, having eaten all the livestock in the vicinity, was requiring regular meals in the form of one city-dweller per day.  In order to keep the hungry beast from rampaging and helping itself, the citizens would draw lots to determine who should be sacrificed.
