Would you like to join the Friends?
You will be joining a wide group of people locally and nationally who support St George’s and its fabric, and the local community, through making and building friendship networks, helping to make events arranged for the local community successful in voluntary and community work, prayer and fund raising to meet our stated object to preserve and assist in the maintenance of the church.
As well as being able to attend our annual programme of social and community events, as a member you will:
- be invited to events arranged for the Friends and other events at St George’s to which Friends are invited;
- together with your family, be able to purchase tickets at a reduced price at events which are open to the public;
- come to at least one welcome event per year, normally held in the Church Hall.
And as well as all that, we will provide you with a Newsletter to keep you in touch and updated of future events.
Who can join?
The appeal of the Friends is that it is both for those who attend church as well as those who do not but who believe that the presence of St George’s is of importance and value to the local community. This appeal already finds response from far and wide.
The programme of events organised for the Friends throughout the year and is publicised in various ways including through a Friends Newsletter. The events include social and cultural (e.g. dramatic, artistic, musical) ones, as well as ones with worship content or moments.
What would I be expected to do?
You can get involved as much or as little as you like.
We always welcome new members to the committee, and are grateful for any extra pair of hands at our fundraising events, but if you would like to simply be a member that's great too.
The annual Friends membership subscription is modest: currently just £20 for an individual, £25 for a couple and £30 for a family.
Application forms for Friends membership are available in St George’s Church or from one of the committee members.
