Here are a few of the groups who do wonderful things at St. George’s. To find out more, pay us a visit or contact us.
We are a group of people which meets to discuss and advise on all aspects of worship, ensuring that services meet the spiritual needs of the congregation. The group includes the Altar Guild, the Servers, the Organist/Director of Music, the readers, the sidespersons, the greeters and pretty much anyone else who plays a part in the worship services. We also review the forms of liturgy being used and make recommendations for changes.
With the support of everyone at St. George’s, we are involved in raising money for and providing time and talent to a wide variety of programs. One of our main areas of support is for the West Broadway Community Ministry. We have recently sponsored aSyrian refugee family of four to come to Winnipeg and also we sponsored an Eritrean family of five. The parish has provided funding for the construction of a well to provide fresh water to a village in Uganda. We support Habitat for Humanity, the Lion’s Eye Bank, some inner city schools (King Edward, Niji Mahkwa and Norquay), and a variety of other causes. Visit the Outreach section of our website also.
Caring for and maintaining an award-winning church building involves a number of parishioners. In 2009 we arranged for the installation of a new energy efficient boiler for the heating system.
We are a very large group of people from all corners of the parish, who plan and organize an annual garage sale in the church, and the annual closet sale raising significant funds for the general running of the church. We take donations of “stuff” and sort it throughout the year. Our garage sale includes a Bake Sale, books, a Silent Auction for some of the items of value, and items for every part of your home. The Closet Sale includes gently used clothing for all members of the family, a Bake Sale, Christmas items and books, as well as a Tea.
