Partnering with Our Community

St George's believes its life in Jesus is worth sharing!  So we're committed to seeing our faith in action in our local community.  We are involved in a number of local initiatives.  Please contact the church office for more information about these initiatives or to get involved.

English Classes

Epsom is home to a high proportion of people for whom English is not their first language.  So we offer free English classes for people in our community, run by members of the church who are trained as ESOL teachers.  Our first set of classes began in September 2012 with 30 people and the initiative has been expanding since then.  The courses run on Tuesday mornings during school term time at 10.00am in the church hall.  Please contact the church office for more information about these courses.

We also have a Bible study class for ESOL students of intermediate English standard on Thursday mornings during term time.

Partnership with Te Papapa School

There are a number within St George's who partner with this local school in a number of ways.  We offer music sessions on a fortnightly basis and we have a group who help the children with their reading.  We assisted in the fund-raising for a pre-school to be established at Te Papapa.

Third Space

Third Space is a registered charity founded and run by members of St George's.  It aims to provide opportunities for people to connect together in neutral spaces different to home and work (third spaces) where they can learn about and discuss ways in which the Christian faith links with life.  Different topics have been tackled like child poverty, justice, science and politics and venues such as pubs, cafes and hotels have been used.  For more information about Third Space, please visit their website.

Mainly Music

Term-time on Fridays at 9.30am.  Lively action songs for pre-schoolers and their carers.  Yummy refreshments are served at the end while the children enjoy a time of free play.  A small fee is payable each week. 

This resumes at the beginning of Term 1, February, 2017.
