Welcome to St George's Altrincham
Opening up St George’s Church for Public Worship from Sunday 23 August Eucharist at 8.00 am only • We have decided to go slowly and carefully in opening up the church for public worship- one-step at a time. • We want to get some practice and experience in implementing the guidance on Covid 19 with a small number of people in the first instance. • Please e-mail Fr Edmund by 12 noon on the Thursday before the Sunday that you wish to attend the service. • Please see the information sheet on guidance- we need to prepare ourselves that things will have to be different in St George’s so as to care and protect each other and to inhibit the spreading of the virus – see pages 18 & 19 at back of service sheet. • We will continue to have a Zoom service each Sunday at 9.30am, which has allowed us to make our spiritual communion, to see each other, sing in the privacy of our homes and include those who are staying at home. We will continue to produce the weekly notice sheet so please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like it e-mailed to you. Fr Edmund will be praying for the Parish and he invites you to join him in prayer in your own homes on Mondays to Saturdays at 10am and 5pm. On Sunday mornings at 8am and 9.30am please remember in your prayers the people that you would have been at Church with to keep the family of St George’s alive in your hearts and minds.
EVERY SUNDAY AT 9.30AM THERE IS A ZOOM SERVICE. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE PART OF THAT PLEASE E-MAIL FR EDMUND email@example.com AND HE WILL SEND YOU THE LINK.
A WhatsApp group has been created. If you wish to join this please text Fr Edmund on 07792 383 282. Looking after our neighbours - Kevin Davis, our churchwarden will be pleased to hear from people who would like to volunteer to ensure that people living on their own have enough food to sustain them. If you know of anyone who may need help in this way please contact him on 07580 747 047
St. George's is the Church of England Parish Church of Altrincham. We are a lively and friendly community of people always ready to welcome new people.
Our worship is centered round the Eucharist, a service that some people may know as Holy Communion or Mass. We aim to be inclusive and our worship has dignity but a relaxed style. Everyone is welcome.
We cater for all ages and we have an excellent Parish Centre used by many groups within the Church and the local community both for learning and for fun. Happy Kids Altrincham Pre-School Playgroup uses the Parish Centre five mornings and three afternoons each week.
There is the popular and excellent Altrincham Church of England Aided School just behind St George's Church in Townfield Road with nursery and primary provision.St George's Church takes its duty and obligation to protect all extremely seriously. We have adopted the national Church of England's robust procedures and guidelines. You can find out more about the national policies and procedures at www.churchofengland.org/safeguarding
