St G's Book Club!

New Here?

Welcome to St G’s Book Club!

Something simple.

This was set up early in 2024 when we realised that some of us had made New Year’s Resolutions to read more books, but then didn’t quite know where to start.

So we thought it might be a good idea each month to post three suggestions:

  1. Something Spiritual/Religious that would help us think more about our faith, or gain some ideas about how to better practise it 
  2. Some Fiction
  3. Some Poetry

And then leave it to folk to pick and choose which one they fancied to dip into that month.

At the moment, we’re not planning on meeting up (although that might change if there is the interest?), so there is no pressure to have books read by this or that date.

Just a simple invitation to enjoy a good book!

Plan Your Visit

You can find us at St George’s Church, Church Street, Altrincham, Greater Manchester. WA14 4DB. Parking is available both in front of church, in the car park in front of the Parish Centre and (outside of school hours) also with our neighbouring school, Altrincham CE Primary School just off Townfield Road, WA14 4DS.

Special Needs?

We know it can be daunting going to a new place if you or someone you know or are responsible for, have special needs. We are committed to making our church as inclusive as possible, so please do get in touch to discuss how we might enable St George’s to be a place for you.

First time?

Many of the traditional services in Advent (a word that describes the run-up to Christmas) have been formed over centuries and enable us to connect with people who have gone before us.  But they also speak into our present and give us hope and sustenance for the future, even if sometimes the language might be a bit different from what we are used to.

We also hold some contemporary services; these may use words more familiar to us, yet they still take us back to an event that has changed the course of history, and the lives of many, many people.

If this is your first time in church, don’t worry if you’re not sure what to do, when to stand etc – you are welcome even if you just sit and take it all in! Most importantly, do feel very welcome at the end to ask questions regarding the symbolism, words and actions of each service.
