Missions Support Group
Our Missions Support Group’s purpose is to support St George’s mission partners through prayer, encouragement and information sharing. The group keeps in touch with our missionaries to share information and to encourage them in their work.
In view of the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20) we value and are committed to external partnerships with Christian mission and ministry beyond our church. Jesus is Lord of the nations. Therefore we value our responsibility to serve in the spread of the gospel and all it entails both locally and globally.
St George’s is in partnership through prayer and financial support with a number of mission partners. A bimonthly prayer time is held to focus on praying for them. Regular payments are made to each partner to enable them to carry out the work God called them to do. Mission partner prayer points are also available regularly in the church foyer.

Christian Education in Schools
Christian Education in Schools provides scripture lessons for children in 33 ACT public schools. The program encourages students to seek, question and explore the big story of the Bible and God’s love for them in Jesus.
SUPA Clubs organised by Scripture Union are voluntary lunch time clubs for kids operating in primary schools. The program focuses on a fun interactive time with stimulating stories from the Bible, games, craft, drama. SUPA Clubs operate in schools with the permission of the principal and consent of parents and guardians. The clubs are run by volunteers from local churches who aim to provide a safe and welcoming place for children along with a chance to investigate Christian beliefs.
