THE VISITING VICAR
One of our Agenda items that was discussed at the recent PCC Meeting was that James intends to strengthen our pastoral care arrangements by ‘recruiting’ a small team to assist him in providing the best possible care to those in need.
Whilst this is being organised and put into place we would very much like to also re-terate to all of you, even if you are not part of the team, that should you know someone that you feel may be in need or think would appreciate a visit from James, to please let us know.
You can either email or leave a message with the Church Office so that we can make sure that at St George’s we are doing all we can to be supporting and caring for one another. As we say in our motto “More than just a building”, we are the body of Christ, reaching out to each other and our community.
St George’s is such a caring and supportive church, looking out for each other but please do let James and the Church Office know so that we can make sure that no-one is being missed. Never assume that someone else will have mentioned it, if you are concerned about someone, do let us know.Thank you so very much! Bethan
From now until Christmas, the Church Office will be closed on Thursdays. This is to enable me to be able to catch up/keep on top of all the administration and design work that is keeping our little office so busy!
It is so wonderful that we are busy but there never seems to be enough hours in the day to complete all that we need or wish to do so for the run up to Christmas, the office will be closed on a Thursday.
We will still be open on all the other weekdays from 10.00 – 1.00pm should you need to contact or visit the office.
I do hope that this will not cause any inconvenience but will actually be more fruitful for our work here at St George’s.
Thank you so much for your understanding and support.
Ps due to appointments for my son, the office will be closed on Friday 2nd December. Thank You!!
CHRISTMAS IS COMING…
Well there really is no avoiding it now, Christmas is not far away, which we seem to be constantly reminded on our televisions and in our supermarkets (it’s getting earlier each year!!).
At St George’s it really does mean a busy time as we prepare to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year for us as Christians.
A time when those who might not yet know Him, may think about coming along and joining us to sing and celebrate the birth of Jesus.
We really want to show our community what a warm, welcoming and wonderful family we have here at St George’s but in order to show them, we will need your help to do so.
We know it’s such a busy time in our personal lives through the run up to Christmas, but please let us know if you are willing and able to help in any of the followings ways:
● Decorating the ChurchWe plan to decorate the Church on Saturday 17th December. Could you spare some time to come along and help?
● Carol Service
A Refreshments Team to serve mince pies and mulled wine after the Carol Service. Donations of mince pies would also be very much appreciated.
● Christingle Service
A Christingle Making Team to come along on Friday 23rd December to the Dunning Room to prepare all the Christingles for Christmas Eve.
Please could you contact the Church Office and let us know if you can help with any of those tasks. Giving your time is a gift that is so very appreciated.
