Our Global Passion

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations
— Matthew 28v19

We encourage every member of St George's to be passionately involved in the task of ‘making disciples of all nations’.

Long Term Mission

Part of our long term mission is the support of international mission partners. Details of all the mission partners supported by St George's can be found below.  In addition to these families we support a Tearfund project in Lale, Uganda


Each year we sponsor church members for short term mission trips including sending a team to help run a holiday club in Romania. We invite you to get involved in the Romania Mission each July.

If you are considering short term mission and are a member at St George’s, we would love to pray for you and give you encouragement. Please get in touch with us to find out how you can receive support from St George's including prayer and financial support, where possible.

Tearfund: Change a Nation

Tearfund & New Wine partner The Pentecostal Assemblies of God (PAG) is working with local churches in some of the poorest communities in Uganda. Their way of working isn’t about doing things for people, it’s about enabling people to do things for themselves. Through Bible study, training, and skills workshops, lives are being transformed. Over time, whole communities become able to provide for themselves. This unique development approach is called the Participatory Evaluation Process (PEP). St George's has a particular link with the Soroti district.
