St. George’s During Lockdown

The church is now open again for private prayer, weekday mornings 9.30-12.30. Safety guidelines can be found here and are clearly displayed on the way into church. However, the hall remains closed. We have resumed Sunday Worship in church at 8.00am and 9.30am, and we are continuing our online Sunday Services here for the foreseeable future. We have also resumed the 9.30am service on Thursday mornings.

The Lance may be read online here and is being sent out to postal subscribers.

Children North East Appeal: the final count

Update: one further bag of school uniform (6 polo shirts, 6 pairs of boys’ trousers, 2 pairs of girls’ trousers, 2 pinafore dresses) and 7 babies cardigans were delivered to CNE on Friday 24th September. Thank you for your ongoing generosity!
As these figures below show, the steady rain did not deter those generous people who made their way to St George’s Church on Saturday, August 21st to donate to the appeal for items of new school uniform to support the work of Children North East:
132 pairs of trousers, 1 pair of short trousers, 62 Skirts, 44 pinafore dresses, 229 polo shirts, 88 pairs of girls’ socks, 133 pairs of boys’ socks, 31 pairs of tights, 7 pair of shoes, 2 pairs of sand shoes, 2 pairs of swimming shorts, and cash donations totalling £90. We also received very welcome donations of children’s underwear, school supplies and stationary.
“A huge thank you from Children North East for the very generous response of the people of St George’s Church and their local community. We will be able to help so many more families.”
