We think walking is a great way to share life and get to know one another better, whilst enjoying the beauty on our doorstep in the Yorkshire Dales. We would love to welcome you to the group – especially if you’re new to St George’s.   

We often walk in the Yorkshire Dales or Moors with a starting point under an hour’s drive from Leeds - though in the summer months we may go a little further afield.  Our programme is available to download on this page, providing details of our walks this year. We usually start walking at 10am and finish before 5pm, covering about 15-18km. Whatever else, we guarantee we’ll be walking through some of the best countryside in Britain!

It’s often proved difficult for men to find meaningful community in churches.  At St George’s we tend to connect through our vibrant Networks and a wide variety of different ministries and opportunities to serve.  However there are moments when it is helpful to get together as men to encourage and spur one another on in our pursuit of godliness.

Sometimes our gatherings take the form of BBQs, Q&A with guest speakers or pub trips.  On other occasions we host New Wine Men’s Days, travel together to conferences and maybe even go oversees on mission.

PLAY AND PRAY

Tuesdays, 10am - 11:30am (term time), St George's Centre

Play and Pray is our mid-week group for babies, pre-schoolers and their carers.  There is plenty of space for play, crafts, singing and a Bible Story time. There's also plenty of opportunity for the grown ups to enjoy quality coffee, cakes and time and space to chat and connect with others.

On the first Tuesday of the month, we have our "Messy Play" sessions.  It's always a good idea to wear old clothes and to bring a complete change of clothes too. 

PLAY AND PRAY... AND STAY
