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 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 service formats vary week by week. The Service of The Word is usually led by members of our lay team

Services of Holy Communion are held, but the pattern changes to accommodate festivals and other special events.

We also have All Age Worship services with participation and activities.

A Café Church style service is also held infrequently. 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.
