St George's Church is a small growing church at the heart of the community involved in serving people of all ages and all backgrounds in many ways. From the food bank outpost and lunch club through to community groups, youth and childrens work, toddlers groups and bereavement support, the church want to build people up and support people in need in the name of Jesus.
The vision we have is to do much more. On our new website - the history and future of St George's church - you will be able to browse our history and look at the vision we have to develop the building. We aim to create a new community space and community cafe along with facilities to better enable us in the many ways we bring life and hope to many people.
The local foodbank that we work with, the Washington Community Food Project told us that, 'There is such a need for places like this where people can meet and be community, I wish this was here already.'
For example, in our 'holiday hunger' week in August we fed nearly 40 children a day with a hot meal and provided games, activities and crafts, but we desparately need better facilities to enable us to cook for that number. We have already had several generous gifts, but to achieve this we need to raise a further £500,000 so please give generously.
