St George’s Academy

Following the closure of St Laurence’s Church building in 2008 due to structural problems, the congregation moved on a temporary basis to worship in St George’s Church of England Academy.

We are a group of ordinary people of all ages and walks of life joined together by a common belief in Jesus Christ. Once a week on Sundays we meet in St George’s Academy to worship God, listen and sometimes get involved in bible-based sermons and talks, and share friendship together.

St George’s Academy is a modern (2007), Church of England Academy for primary aged children. The church works in partnership with the school; a relationship which is valued by both school and church.

Every Sunday at 10.45am we hold a service which is informal and family-friendly with both contemporary and traditional music and different styles of worship. There are teaching groups for children and teens.

The first Sunday of the month is based on The Service of The Word and is usually led by members of our lay team

The second and fourth Sundays of each month is Holy Communion, but the pattern changes to accommodate festivals and other special events.

On the third Sunday of the month we have our All Age Worship with participation and activities.

A Café Church style service is held on the fifth Sunday of the month. This is a time for us to discuss questions, and share thoughts with each other over a cup of coffee or tea.

Every Sunday a crèche area is provided, and parents and carers are able to hear the service from this area. We aim for all of our services to be accessible to all ages.
