So, the Bible… On Desert Island Discs, the Bible is one of the books available to the castaway and in the film ‘The Day After Tomorrow’ a survivor wants to keep hold of a Bible; not because he believes it, but because the Bible is somehow special. Many people think the Bible is special, including many who don’t necessarily embrace its message. Here at St George’s we take studying the Bible very seriously. Carol Swain…

Some of you have already met Sharon Byrne who has been working with us at St George’s since September 2017 in a role called a Pioneer Partner. I am delighted to be able to say that Sharon has “partnered” the work of the church so effectively, it was with great pleasure that we felt her role should develop into a new one with the title “Children’s & Families Missioner”. This is a three year post…

We have family in Australia and in a recent skype call, our son said “the weather is warming up now” because of course, in the southern part of the globe they are preparing for summer. The world keeps turning with its cycles of light and dark, warmth and cold, growth and rest and after our very hot summer, autumn is well under way and soon winter will be upon us; the damp and darkness, the…

Now here’s a question: What do a teddy bear tombola, jewellery, different types of gin and quilting have in common? Answer; St George’s Arts and Crafts Fair of course! By the time you read this, we may be looking forward to the Fair or it may have happened (September 22nd), but whichever it is, thank you for all your support. The Arts and Crafts Fair is deliberately timed to coincide with Harvest Festival time. That’s…

St George’s Church Summer 2018

One of the big questions about “church” is where does church happen? In the building, in the street? Or is it in both? To find the answer to this and similar questions, the best place to look is scripture and when we look there, we find that Jesus did in fact go to both the temple (church) and out in the streets. Jesus spent a lot of time talking to religious leaders and he did…

“We know the price of everything and the value of nothing”… I was reminded of that phrase by an article in a recent edition of Classic Car Weekly about a 1939 Mercedes Benz 770K Grosser Offener Tourenwagen (which I’m guessing means big car) which is to be auctioned in America. The model is reckoned as one of the motor industry’s greatest automotive achievements in design, engineering and construction. No estimate is given as to how…

It all started with pop tarts… they popped up on our television screens and popped out of our toasters. And since then, we’ve got pop-up shops, pop-up restaurants and now at Littleport & East Cambs Academy we have Pop-Up Church! We’re very grateful to Principal Mr Gaskins and his team for allowing us use of a classroom on Friday lunchtimes to meet with pupils and chat about all things, churchy or otherwise. Called Pop- Up…

Here at St George’s we’ve had a very busy 2017 so far already. The Food Bank is making a huge difference to peoples’ lives through not only food parcels, but advice on housing, benefits and for two families, schooling too. The bible study groups, consistently well supported, have spent this year looking at John’s and Mark’s gospels as well as Paul’s letter to the church in Rome. It is very encouraging to hear parents (and…

Message from St George’s Church

Message from St George’s Church

Nearly half way through another year and summer is upon us, but just cast your mind back, if you will, to Easter. Easter time is linked with all the new life springing up and blossoming at this time of year, but that of course is because we live in the northern hemisphere; down under, now autumn is in full swing and Easter coincided with dying back and getting ready for the winter rest. For us…
