Groups and Discussion

At St George’s we are serious about growing our spiritual lives together. In addition to worship services, we offer opportunities for learning throughout the year.  These study groups are open to everyone in the community. See our News & Events page for the latest offerings.

The Sceptics Group is a free-wheeling discussion group exploring questions of faith, science, scripture and more.

We currently meet on Zoom at 8pm on the first Sunday of the month, led by the Rev Dr John Philpott-Howard. If you would like to join the group, please email John.
