Outreach Ministry

The members of the Parish of Georgina believe that we are called by God to reach out into the world.

This is a very important part of who we are and what we do.

When a need arises the members step forward to do whatever is needed.

Additional outreach during the COVID-19 lockdown was provided to River Glen Haven staff, Georgina Community Food Pantry, Sandgate Shelter for Women, Faithworks and the Families made homeless due to the townhouse fire on May 26th, 2020 in Sutton.

(This ministry has not been able to continue during 2020/2021 but is expect to resume in 2022)

Prayer is one of the main functions of our parish. We endeavor to live as a family of God, in work and worship. At both churches, intercessory prayer is an important part of the service. Parishioners, local residents, and visitors are urged to bring their prayer requests to the Prayer Desk at St. Georges, the service prayers through the church office, or through the Prayer Chain.
