MINISTRIES and missions

St. George’s is engaged with various outreach initiatives, that strive to follow Christ’s teaching in Matthew 25: 35-36…“for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.”

 

We are blessed to have a talented music director, proficient in piano and violin. Our mix of music style includes The Hymn Book, praise & worship songs, and Celebration songbook songs.

Joining our music leaders are dedicated vocalists.

this is a Diocesan youth group including all who want to join from the Diocese.

Sunday School

One of our defining qualities and core ministries at

St. George’s is our very active Sunday School Program, lead by our dedicated teachers and helpers. Sunday school takes place during the Sunday service, which begins at 10:00 a.m..  The children begin upstairs with a children’s talk gathering together at the front of the Church.  The children and congregation join in singing the children’s song, at the end of which, the Sunday school teachers take the kids downstairs for Sunday school.  

St. George’s also has a nursery room with change table and rocking chair for nursing mothers or fussy wee ones.

Pastoral Visits

The parish priest and people of St. George’s make regular visits to those who are sick and shut in, either in their homes or in hospital or care facilities.  Holy Communion, usually by reserved sacrament, is administered during these visits as well.

 

St. George’s visits all of the care facilities, in rotation with other churches in the city of Brandon, sharing with the residence God’s Word and Sacraments, not only on the regularly scheduled services, but throughout each week as need arises.

Pastoral visits are over the phone for now. 

If you would like a call please leave a message at 

the office 204-728-6542.

Samaritan House Grocery Cart

The first Sunday of the month is dedicated to supporting the community ministry of Samaritan House food bank. In the narthex of the Church, you will encounter an old grocery cart. It is there to collect non-perishable food items from the parishioners, and to stand as a reminder that some do not have the luxury of filling a grocery cart. That which is collected is shared with folks who stop by or is taken to Samaritan House. 

Prayer Groups

We also have several Bible Study & Prayer Groups which meet throughout the week. There is both a Ladies’ bible study group and a bible study group for Men. Another Bible study group meets before the mid-week Book of Common Prayer Holy Communion Service Wednesday mornings, held at the Church. 

Altar Flowers

Each week the Altar is adorned with beautiful flower arrangements, for the glory of God and in loving memory of parishioners loved ones who have passed on.  After each Sunday Mass, the flowers are then delivered to the sick and shut in or those experiencing times of difficulty in their lives, to brighten their day.

Annual Kid's Karnival

We have been proud to put on an annual Carnival for the
