St George’s is involved with the wider community in many differing ways. We offer a community resource in our Church building and the adjoining Parish Rooms.
We support local organisations through membership of committees etc from the local Uniformed Organisation to the Town Council and Youth Club.
We also support local initiatives such as the Stroud Foodbank, collecting food at the church and also from local supermarkets.
Our financial support for charity goes beyond the shores of the UK. We are committed to giving 10% of our income to support the needs of our world.
Parish Room or Church Bookings
The Parish Room with its ramped access offers accommodation for groups of all sizes. It is possible to have a partition closed making the room even more friendly for smaller groups. The well-equipped kitchen makes the room an attractive venue for a family ‘get together’. An added attraction is exclusive use of the car park.
The church is also available to hire as a concert venue or as an exhibition space. It is equipped with both sound and projection systems.
We recently installed additional toilets to make the buildings even more attractive as a venue.
For enquiries email firstname.lastname@example.org. Further information is available in a leaflet on our Downloads page. You will also find a Hire Form and Conditions of Hire on the Downloads Page.
St George’s gives to a number of Christian Charities including CMS (supporting mission overseas), The Children’s Society, Christian Aid and Wateraid.
We also organise special collections following world disasters.
The Stroud Foodbank
The Stroud Foodbank, which covers Nailsworth, is one of a number of Foodbanks nationally supported by the Thrussel Trust.
In 2014 across the Stroud District Foodbank 4243 people were fed. All were referred via third party professionals and were given food for 3 days to help them manage during a crisis. All our food and funding came from local people here in our District.
We are a collection point at St George’s and some of our members work as volunteers collecting food from local supermarkets and taking it to the main distribution centre.
There is a local distribution centre based at Christ Church which delivers to local families in need.
