St George's Church, 8 Audley Road, Folkestone CT20 3QA

The church is situated opposite the newly refurbished Folkestone West railway station.

 

On Sunday morning all hymns and songs are displayed by a data-projector using Mission Praise, Songs of Fellowship, Freshfields and many other publications. We have a group of musicians who lead our music during the morning worship. We hold Children's Church for various ages, held separately at the same time as the morning service, although the children remain in the main body of the church when there is a family service. Also a group of teenagers hold their own separate prayer and Bible study session. Incorporated into the Eucharist on a monthly basis our healing ministry takes place which is well received by all.

 

In the afternoon the local Nepalese Christian community gathers together in our church to worship in their traditional way. 

 

Our Prayer Circle meets regularly each week to strengthen the threads of ongoing prayer with thanksgiving. We also have several home-groups meeting weekly for prayer and Bible study.

 

A monthly coffee morning attracts people from the parish who may live alone and would like to join us and chat with Rev. Bob. During term-time a well established Meeting Point group gathers together twice monthly to participate in a varied programme. The session includes prayer and Bible study and has visiting speakers on diverse topics.

The Flock, a baby and toddler group together with their parents/carers, meets during term-time for fellowship, play time and children’s Bible stories. Messy Church is a monthly family service for younger children and accompanying adults. Late Net, a group catering for young people of secondary school age meets weekly on Friday evenings.

 

Being a multi-use community building, the church is used by many groups of all ages, who participate in a variety of activities. This includes a pre-school in the mornings (which has been awarded outstanding Ofsted reports), retirement groups, plus other large evening groups and six uniformed organisations.

 

In April 2013 we celebrated our 75th Anniversary.  The church was filled to capacity with past and present members all enjoying a wonderful service of thanksgiving followed by a celebratory lunch. We at St. George’s Church are a very caring family orientated congregation welcoming and embracing everyone from all walks of life.
