In November 1999 St George’s Church signed a covenant with West Broadway Community Ministry in which it was promised to respond to their needs by volunteering time, and the sharing of accounting and management skills. Every Sunday food is brought to the church, blessed, and then delivered to West Broadway. Three thousand lunches a year are served at this drop-in centre. In 2003 a parishioner made a memorial donation of $25,000 to St George’s and agreed that it be used to benefit West Broadway Community Ministry over five years. We provide large donations of groceries for the food bank on a continual basis and support other West Broadway projects such a “Walk a Mile in My Shoes”, the Alabaster Jar, and various other activities provided by the Community Ministry.
On first January 1996 the Diocese of Central Buganda and The Diocese of Rupert’s Land signed a Companion Diocese Covenant. St George’s has played an active role in this Covenant, particularly with its assistance to the Ndoddo Parish. Click here for Reaching Out to Africa
For Where Two or Three are Gathered in my Name,
I am There Among Them.
Matthew, Chapter 18, Verse 20
Do you need personal prayer support? Where can you go? St George’s itself is a house of prayer. In addition, prayer support is offered on an hour prayer request line, 475 5942 or phone Heather Birtles 255 8128. Requests (first name only) are fanned out to other parishes for a one or three-months’ prayer period. There are also two “prayer quads” that pray daily for the needs of St George’s. Prayer is one of the elements linking our Anglican Communion together.
