Welcome to St George's Kemp Town
Celebrating St George!

stgeorgeimageApril is a busy month in Brighton,and for St George’s – the Marathon is a challenge for local runners (and those trying to get to church!),the excitement of Easter and the start of a new church year with our Annual Meeting.

Perhaps the most important date in our part of Kemp Town is St George’s Day itself, when we have the chance to celebrate our patron saint.To make sure as many people as possible have the chance to join in, this year we are marking the occasion with our service on Sunday,26th April.

The service starts at 10.30 am, and we are delighted that long-time friend of St George’s, Rev Kate Lawson, will be joining us to preach.Sermon is something of a misnomer, as she is a lively and interesting speaker.

The Mayor of Brighton and Hove, Cllr Brian Fitch, and MP for Brighton Kemptown,Simon Kirby, will both be in attendance,and have generously agreed to help distribute our annual St George’s Day grants to local charities and community groups.

Once the formalities are done, we will join together for a time of fellowship with a shared brunch.Entertainment this year comes from our organist and choirmaster, Mark Richey,an inventive and imaginative musician.

Please do join us if you can for what should be a happy and memorable occasion.

 
Join Georgie's Gang

georgieYou’ll find more than teddy bears in the Children’s Corner at St George’s this year. Georgie the Dragon has arrived, making waves (or should that be fanning the flames?!) for our new Children’s Club.

Launching with a welcome party, Georgie’s Gang is a monthly club for children up to age 11.

Each session will begin with a short cartoon, or film, related to the theme of the afternoon, and will end with the children joining together for reflection and a pasta meal. The emphasis, however, will be on a selection of activities making up the main part of the afternoon.

All our volunteers are DBR­checked, of course, but this is a family time, in every sense of the word. Parents are encouraged to stay and take part with your children. It’s not compulsory, of course, but it can be fun to find your inner child!

Come along to meet Georgie next time!

 

All sessions start at 4.00 pm, and there is a small charge of 50p per child.

Everyone is welcome – for more details contact the Parish Office on 01273 279448 or e­mail This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
