Getting Involved in Learning:
LENT AND AUTUMN COURSES
St. George’s Church has a sound history of involvement in Lent Courses. This year we studied LIFE IN ALL ITS FULNESS (Mental Health & the Church). The focus was on awareness, understanding,empowering, talking about it and encouraging patience, kindness and compassion. Click here for more details.
Over the past few years, Autumn studies have begun with Church House Pilgrim Courses and have used The Beatitudes and The Lordʼs Prayer. In autumn 2019 we shall consider Crossing Borders – Exploring Brexit through the lens of the Book of Ruth. Bible Study & Reflection based on a resource from the reconciling community of Corrymeela.
Stephanie will lead an Advent discussion group on Thursdays 28th November and 5th, 12th, 19th December from 12 noon to 1.30pm, meeting at 3 High laws, South Gosforth.

As a church we are committed to the vision, ‘Working towards a Dementia Friendly Jesmond.’ As such we are involved in offering Dementia Awareness Sessions to targeted members of our congregations with the aim of ultimately having as many of our members as possible ‘Dementia Aware.’ Our concern for Dementia related issues is a very important part of who we are as St.George’s Church in Jesmond. We welcome all those involved in any way with a dementia to our Friday Cafe each Friday 10am-12noon. You will be among friends.
