Our Values


Local church life.  We value the fact that God has placed us in our community to share His love in both word and action with everyone, whatever their age or background. We want to play our part in being God's blessing on our community.

Worship.  We value worship that is both passionate and intimate and leads us into an encounter with God. We understand that different people will connect with God in different ways, so we value the provision of different styles of worship, which is why at St George's you can choose from a range of services, from something that is more formal and traditional, through to something that is very informal and relaxed.

Spirit-empowered life.  We value the person and work of the Holy Spirit. We seek to be a church that is intentionally open to the leading of the Spirit. We encourage this openness in our services and at any other time when we gather corporately to pray, either as a whole church, or in smaller groups. We offer prayer for individuals after every service, where we ask for God to be at work in that person's life through the power of His Spirit.

Bible-based teaching. We seek to be faithful to the teaching of the Bible, with belief and ethics founded on the person and work of Jesus. We value Bible teaching that is Spirit-inspired, relevant and equips people in their everyday lives.

Kingdom-centred mission.  We want to share the good news of Jesus' Kingdom with our whole community. We value providing ways in which people can explore the relevance of the Christian faith to their lives.  We want to reach out in love to serve others so that we can be God's blessing to our community.

Active discipleship.  We not only want to help people find a personal faith in Jesus, we want to help them grow in that faith and equip people to live out their Christian lives with purpose, transformation and hope.

Every-member ministry.  We value the Church as being the Body of Christ, where every person has an important part to play. We help people to discover their God-given gifts and we encourage everyone to make a contribution to the life of St George's that is rewarding and fruitful.
