EVENTS around St. George’s …more

Everyone is welcome to join in our celebrations each Sunday: 8:00am, 10:00am and 7:00pm (Worship Room), and Wednesdays 9:30am (restarting in September). After each service, there is an opportunity for fellowship, support for you and perhaps a good home for your talents in our choir, discussion and service groups, and Sunday School.

Our choir sings at the 10 am Choral Eucharist each Sunday. If you would like to join the choir, please speak to any member of the choir. Their rehearsals are Sundays at 11:30 am, following the 10 am service (and a quick coffee!)

Heritage Days 2015:
The long weekend of August 1-3 found  people streaming past our front door, on their way to the Heritage Days celebrations in Hawrelak Park. This year, otherwise welcome rain on Saturday morning delayed the crowds, which were back to normal. With the exception of Saturday’s rain delay, we served about the same number of glasses of lemonade (1700) to thirsty passers-by as we did last year.

Book, Bake and Treasures Sale at St. George’s:
The next Sale will be the November Sale, and so you’re encouraged to stockpile books, recipes and treasures that you might like to donate in the autumn. If you know friends to be enthusiastic supporters of our Sales, please pass the word to them about the next St. George’s Sale.
