Open House – Nurturing Our Faith

Following the positive response to the recent series of Lent Groups, this brochure provides details of further opportunities at St. George’s to help us explore and nurture our faith.
All these groups are open to anyone who is interested. It is anticipated the groups will be flexible to enable people to come and go as they wish to one or more of the sessions, or to try different groups. They are not intended to have fixed membership.

A more detailed brochure will be published in September for the Autumn term.
