St George’s will join the local Halloween festivities on Sunday October 31st with Covid-safe activities in the courtyard from 4:30-6pm. There will be treats, spider craft, greenscreen photos (so you can add spooky backgrounds) and as always good community fun!
The 3pm service (onsite and online) will kick off the celebrations with an intergenerational service and then be part of hosting the evening festivities. If you are able to attend in person, we would love you to come dressed up and willing to be part of welcoming others to the site for the evening.
Wondering why we mark Halloween with the community?
Halloween is the eve of All Saints Day (All Hallows Eve), the traditional time when we remember the dead, especially the great examples of faith, hope and love who have gone before us. It is a chance to consider our mortality, to remember that genuine evils exist, and to listen to the Living One who says to us “fear not”, from the far side of death.
