The St George-in-the-East Partnership
Building on almost 300 years of faithful Christian witness we are joining with others to help renew our ministry and mission in the years ahead.
The Partnership involves
- the Parish
- the Bishop of Stepney
- Angus Ritchie and Tim Clapton (licensed on May 6 as its clergy)
- a lay community who will live in St George's Rectory from September pray each day in the church, and join in the ministry and mission of its congregation to the parish
- the Centre for Theology and Community, who employ Angus and Tim, and will oversee the lay community
Please keep us in your prayers - and watch this space for more news as the Partnership develops!
