Welcome to St George's Kemp Town
Celebrate and Remember - Autumn @ St George’s

flamingoIt’s been a year of contrasts already at St George’s – we celebrated Kate Lawson’s Ordination in June, followed by a colourful wedding later in the summer. The centenary of World War One has also proved a defining theme of the year, of course, and we joined others at Brighton Pavilion in August to mark the outbreak of hostilities.

There is still a lot to look forward to, and we have some special services ahead through the Autumn.

We celebrate our Harvest Festival on Sunday, 5th October at 10.30 am. Harvest is a time of thanksgiving, and a chance to consider those who are less fortunate than ourselves, asking how we can help to make a difference.

We mark All Saints’ Day during our morning service on Sunday, 2nd November at 10.30am, always a cheerful affair. Later in the day, at 6.00 pm, we remember the faithful departed at our All Soul's Service – a chance to pause and remember those who have gone before us, including family and friends who are sorely missed.

The following week, Sunday 9th November, brings us to Remembrance Sunday, especially poignant in the centenary of the start of the war to end all wars. We will mark the occasion during our morning service at 10.30 am, with two minutes’ silence, and the laying of a wreath.

Do join us for any of these services, as you are able, and, indeed, for any of our services and social events. For more information about life at St George’s, contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Making Headlines

For St George's, mission extends beyond Sunday morning services and bible study. It's about reaching out and placing ourselves at the heart of the community we are part of, and using our building to serve Kemp Town and beyond. We are blessed that we have been able to create a wonderful Community Centre in the Crypt of the church, where many groups meet throughout the week.

Our excellent Neighbourhood Nursery is here too. Our church is regularly used for concerts and over the years has hosted a diverse range of events from local community choirs to international recording artists.

We have a resident cafe in the church that is open throughout the week and on Saturdays, serving wonderful food and beverages. This provides a great place to meet-up and catch-up, as does our Community Garden in front of the church. Many of these facilities and activities are enjoyed by people who are not churchgoers. Neither faith nor denomination are barriers as we welcome those who live, work or visit the area to share the building we are blessed with and participate in the raft of activities on offer.

Most of the time, the work of the church and those groups who use it goes on without much fanfare. However, it is worth celebrating and giving thanks for the time and commitment of all those who put their time, talents and effort in to making St George's one of the hubs of the Kemp Town community, and we believe that this is key aspect of what the living church is about.

Recently, we have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to share some of what goes on at St George's with a wider audience. An article in The Telegraph focused on the Brighton Repair Cafe at St George's. Meanwhile, Father Andrew has spoken to Brighton and Hove Pride and explains why Pride matters and how St George's is committed to serving the diverse community our Parish serves.

Creative Housekeeping

cleaning-supplies1After the excitement of Easter and St George’s Day it does no harm to focus our thoughts back on some of ‘the basics'- mundane though it may be to change a light bulb, mend a chair or to cut the grass.

St George’s is a lively place throughout the week, with so many activities and events, as well as acts of worship, taking place. It is your generosity, though, that helps pay our day-to-day running costs, as St George’s receives no public money towards these general expenses.

It’s great to have fun at the same time as helping our church raise the funds needed to keep it running as a hub for the benefit of the Kemp Town community. We are fortunate to have so many creative and talented people in our parish and we'd love to hear your ideas to help us meet our costs. Here are some suggestions to get you started:

  • Choir concert
  • Afternoon tea and cakes
  • Wine and cheese evening
  • Sponsored bible reading
  • Knitting
  • Asking for donations when baking for friends and relatives
  • Baking muffins
  • Table top sale
  • Auction of promises

Look out for futher details our latest Stewardship Campaign, and let us know how you would like to help. Talk to a Welcomer at church on a Sunday, e-mail us on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or tweet us @StGeorgesChurch

Bank Some Calories for Others
share canAs we turn our thoughts to warmer weather, many of us are focusing our attention on cutting down and eating healthily, having over-indulged during the colder months.

Take this opportunity to also stop and think about those less fortunate than ourselves; not just in trouble-spots of areas of natural disasters around the world, but also closer to home. As you take stock of your intake and your kitchen cupboards, have a look and see what you can share with others who may not have had the luxury of too much turkey and Christmas pudding.food bank crop

St George's is playing its part, and has a dedicated corner for FOOD BANK donations. These are collected weekly, and taken to a central collection point, run by the Brighton City Mission.

You can bring in donations at any point in the week, of course - a packet or can of something, as well as practical items such as toiletries and toilet rolls, to help those of us in Brighton who are less well off, and genuinely find it difficult to make ends meet.

Please help if you can.
