Welcome to St George's Kemp Town
Finding Easter in Unusual Places

chilli easter bwLent is a time of contemplation before the joy of the Resurrection at Easter.

To help you on the journey, why not join in our study course ‘Towards the Crucifixion’, running on Monday evenings in the Crypt Community Centre from 7.00pm. There is also Stations of the Cross, a short, reflective service each Saturday during Lent at 9.30am, followed by a fellowship breakfast of coffee and croissants.
Holy Week begins on Palm Sunday, 29th March, when we will meet at 10.15am at St Mark’s Church, Eastern Road, and process to St George’s for the service.

On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of Holy Week, services are held each evening at 7pm.

Maundy Thursday marks the Last Supper, and the betrayal of Jesus. A service is held at 8pm, and will include footwashing for those who wish, and the stripping of the altar. The church remains open until midnight for the Watch of the Passion by candlelight.

There is a chance to join a ‘Walk of Witness’ to the Old Steine on Good Friday, before our service begins at 1pm with Stations of the Cross, led by Father Andrew. This is followed by the Liturgy of the Day.

On Easter Day itself, Sunday 5th April, our service begins at 10.30am as usual, and will include the lighting of the Paschal Candle signifying the Light of Christ in our lives. Do stay for a shared brunch afterwards, and games for the younger people.

We look forward to welcoming you this Easter.

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!

    • Sunday, 12th April - Easter Bunnies!

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