It will start and finish at the Control Tower where Toilets and a cafe are available.

All welcome.

Thought for the month, ‘Prayer, the transforming friendship’

The story is told of eleven-year-old Robert who hadn’t done his homework and wasn’t at all prepared for his written test in geography. He struggled through the exam, doing a lot more guessing than he should have. That evening he began to worry. What if too many of the answers had been wrong? What if he failed the test? That night, as he said his prayers, he suddenly blurted out a nervous postscript: ‘And please God, make Paris the capital of Sweden.’
Sometimes our prayers can be rather like this – we want results from God; we want God to sort things out for us and for others, and so although we know it is ridiculous to …

Thy Kingdom Come – Photos from a wonderful week at St George’s

Last week was a busy week in the life of St George’s.  The church was filled with interactive prayer stations to celebrate the international week of prayer ‘Thy Kingdom Come’.  We had (amongst other things) a labyrinth, a sheepfold, a vine and a bread buffet complete with giant pretzel! 
The church was full of people too, it was open all day, every day, with visitors from other churches in the area coming to see what was going on, plus groups from Falkland School and parents and grandparents stopping by after school and preschool.  Lots of people came to visit who would not normally cross the threshold.
Each day at 2.30 the north transept was transformed into a …

Thy Kingdom Come – a week of prayer from 10th-20th May

Thy Kingdom Come is on all week at St George’s.  Do come into the church and have a look at the many and varied displays and aids to prayer.   
Throughout the weeks these prayer stations will be up and the church open to any and all who would like to come and look around and share in the event.  The stations are to help us to think and to pray; light a candle for a loved one, walk the labyrinth or taste some different types of bread and a grape from the vine.  There are opportunities to contemplate change in our world or to post a question on the graffiti wall.  Children are very, very welcome and …
