St. George’s United Reformed Church is the ‘Church on the Bridge’ over the River Wansbeck on the southern approach to the market town of Morpeth, Northumberland . Our main Sunday service is at 10.30am and includes the Celebration of Communion on the first Sunday of each month, and we also have a new midday service held at 12.30pm on the first Wednesday of each month. There is a lively Sunday Junior Church and Crèche facility.
We consider ourselves to be a church for the open minded and open hearted. We strive to be a dynamic, accepting and forward looking church that is actively seeking to find new ways of exploring and expressing spiritual insight and experience for the 21st Century.
St. George’s is a church where it is safe to ask questions, express one’s doubts and seek answers. We take ourselves seriously enough to know how to laugh and smile, cry and campaign. We are a richly diverse group of people, willing to journey together as we seek to follow Christ’s teaching and apply to our daily lives make sense of the claim of Jesus Christ upon our lives in a complex world.
