Saint George's Episcopal Church has been a fixture on the southside of Savannah since the early 1960's. We are one of almost 70 Episcopal congregations that make up the Episcopal Diocese of Georgia, founded in the 1800's and a part of the larger world-wide Anglican Communion. We are a warm and welcoming community of faith, dedicated to making a difference in our community in the name of Jesus Christ.
We worship together every Sunday at 9:30 a.m. Holy Communion, also known as the Holy Eucharist or the Lord's Supper, is our central act of worship. We pray, sing and listen to God's Word through scripture readings and sermons. The entire community participates, from youth to the elderly. Various members serve at the altar, read the day's scripture lessons, offer up the prayers of the faithful or help administer Holy Communion. Our choir offers special anthems and supports the congregation as we sing hymns, ancient and modern.We also gather on Wednesday Mornings at 10 a.m. and Thursday evenings at 6:30 p.m for a less formal Holy Communion service, followed by bible study and discussion.
In addition to our Thursday program we hold a lively adult forum on Sundays after the worship service along with Christian education opportunities for children and youth. Nursery services are provided at Sunday worship, but children are always welcome in church.
We continue to look for new opportunities to serve our south side community. Presently we are involved with S.A.F.E. Shelter, a respite place for battered women. We have a comfort pillow ministry at all area hospitals; Men's Club; ECW (Episcopal Church Women); Intercessory Prayer Group; Mary's Guild (makes chemo caps); Christmas Tree Lot in December' Boy Scouts; and many other ministries. Our hospitality is amazing too!
Our clergy visit the sick and provide pastoral care not only to the parish, but to the community at large.
Wherever you are in your spiritual journey, we invite you to join us at Saint George's as we continue to seek to be faithful to the Good News of God in Jesus Christ.
