Online Evensong

We normally sing evensong on the third Sunday of the month at 6.30pm in church but for the 21st June, we produced an online service by some of the evensong team and uploaded it to Youtube.    
 
Click here to see and listen to evensong.  We have prepared a DVD and CD; if you would like the service in this format please email church@greatbromley.org.uk to ask for a copy.

If you would like the words of the hymns to join in at home please click here.

A Big 'Thank You' to our Evensong team of artists, clergy, musicians, and readers who have recorded from their homes this special service. We are marking the great festivals - Passiontide, Easter, Ascension, Pentecost, and Trinity; we haven't been able to celebrate them in church this year but this is a new way to celebrate.

Here are links to two other services, said in St George's on the day of its reopening, 5 July 2020.  They both have a little organ music played by the Church organist.

St George’s Church is closed except on Sundays during the Covid-19 pandemic.  But prayer goes on!

We are online, with online services from our benefice and around the country and we have an email newsletter – sign up at church@greatbromley.org.uk

You can send prayer requests to church@greatbromley.org.uk or phone a churchwarden.

Messy Church

A few years ago a group of like minded people from the benefice met together to discuss the future of Children in Church. The Children's Work Committee meet together regularly to plan "Messy Church".

The events can be found on the events page and listed in The Bromley Messenger magazine.

What is "Messy Church"?

Messy Church is an opportunity for young families to come to church in a new way, with craft activities, sharing of a meal and listening to God's word through stories, prayer and praise.

Messy church doesn't always take place in a church building but finds somewhere suitable for families to meet, it is an informal way of coming to church where we can make a mess and have some fun!

Please join us! For more information please phone Carol Cordwell 01206 395103.
