FAQs (including Covid 19)
When will the church building be open?
The church building is currently closed as we explore ways of safely re-opening the building to the public.
Our 10.30am Sunday service and Wednesday Mid-week Service won’t begin again until at least September.
Our 8am may begin before this as it is a small congregation.
What can I expect when I come to church?
Virtual church -
We meet online every Sunday for family worship and you can expect a fun, family friendly service that includes, 'life under lockdown' videos, interactive all age talks and songs, a sermon, worship music, prayers and interviews along with much more! You can access this on twitch or on youtube. For more information please click here.
Church in the St George's building -
A warm welcome! St. George’s is a friendly and informal church and there’s certainly no particular dress code. On a regular Sunday, most people arrive around 5 to 10 minutes before we start and the welcome team will make sure you have everything you need and answer any questions you may have. A normal Sunday lasts around an hour and a half and everyone is welcome to stay for a drink, a biscuit and a chat afterwards.
How do I find the church?
St. George’s Church is on the High Street in Deal and the entrance is on the side adjacent to St. George’s Road. The postcode is CT14 6BA. There is a map on our Home page.
Where can I park?
We recommend that you park in the West Street pay-and-display car park, which is behind the town hall and just along the road from Sainsbury’s. Parking is free on Sundays but there is a charge on bank holidays. There is a cut-through at the bottom end of the car park that leads through to St. George’s Road and to the Church. The postcode for the car park entrance to put into your SatNav is CT14 6EB.
Is there disabled access?
The ground floor of the church can be reached by those with special access needs and there is a disabled toilet.
Do I need to bring any money?
No! Our regular members give something toward the work of the church and to support various charities and mission work either through Internet Banking or via collection plate on the table at the back of the church, but please do not feel obliged to contribute if you are visiting.
What about my children and teenagers?
We are a family church of all ages and our children and young people are very important to us. We aim to help them grow up knowing the presence and power of Jesus in their lives. We have a team of experienced and committed children’s leaders and during the school term, we have a fantastic programme available. Take a look at our pages on Children and Youth for more info.
What can I do to help?
Church is about us working together and there are lots of ways you can help: by sharing your time, your talents and your life experience with us. We have a number of different Teams that make it all happen. If you are interested in finding out more, then please get in contact with us.
