Sunday Bulletin and Reading Sheet for Sunday 4th June

The Bulletin and Reading Sheet for Sunday 4th June are now available to download, read and print out HERE.

Fr Colin will be back in church on Wednesday 7th June. If you have any urgent queries while he is away, please contact Rev Liz or one of the Churchwardens (Chris or Rosy).

Waterlooville Music Festival (11th-17th June) – We now have enough helpers for the Catering at the Festival but still need a few more Stewards.  If you can help, please have a look at the list on the table at the back of church and fill in your name in any of the free white spaces marked Steward in red. Also, if you are able to make some scones please sign the sheet on the table so we have an idea of numbers. Please use a 7cm cutter so they are roughly the same size.

Help is also needed please from George’s Men and Ladies from 9am on Saturday 10th June to set up the church for the music festival.  Thank you.

Tickets - If you have purchased your tickets for Waterlooville Music Festival, the tickets are now printed and will be available for collection after the 10am Eucharist today.  If you have not yet purchased your tickets now is the time to do so, they will also be available to purchase after the 10am Eucharist this morning. Credit cards accepted.

St George’s Friendship Group (with bereavement support if needed) – The next meeting / coffee morning will be held on Monday 12th June at 10am in the Church hall. All are welcome. Please contact Linda Smith on 07834 457284 or email honeydaycareservices@gmail.com for more information.

Best wishes

Carbon Footprint Calculator

As part of the Eco Church award which we are working towards, St George’s is inviting you to use a Carbon footprint calculator to see what your impact is on the environment and to give suggestions to reduce it. These are a few we’ve found, you may like to use a different one. Do let us know how you get on! We don’t need to know the results, but we’d be delighted to hear from those who have engaged with this.

Many thanks in advance
The Eco Church Group.

 This one is free, secure and gives results without the need to give your email address. Quite detailed info needed though.


A nice, quick, easy calculator but it needs an email address to get the results and you effectively sign up for newsletters but can unsubscribe at any point.


Secure, comprehensive, asks you for an email address if you want to but you get a summarised report anyway. Offers good ways to reduce your carbon footprint which are personalised to your answers. This is the best in our opinion!

Scams and Tricksters - We have been warned by the Diocese that Churches and their congregations are being targeted by fraudsters, so please be alert. The latest scam is an email, purportedly from the Vicar or some other trusted Church Official, asking the recipient to contribute to a secret and discreet gift collection for a church member by purchasing Amazon Vouchers, and sending the voucher codes in reply.

Any church fundraising activity will have appeared in the Sunday Bulletin, you can view both current and past copies on the church website HERE.

There are people who have lost huge sums of money by being scammed by someone purporting to be the Police, or from a Bank, saying perhaps that an account has been compromised and persuading the withdrawal of cash or transfer of funds to another account. Never withdraw cash or transfer money on instructions of any ‘Officials’ or your Bank. They will be fraudsters who are persuasive and creating a sense of urgency. Remember you have done nothing to cause an account to be comprised, so it is the Bank’s problem not yours! So stop, allow time for some calm thought, and before doing anything contact us for advice.

There have been scam emails going around purportedly from NHS about COVID vaccinations and vaccination status. You will never be asked to pay for a vaccine or to establish your vaccination status. The NHS will never ask for Bank or Card details, PIN numbers or passwords, or for documents to prove your identity.

Never expose bank or credit card details in response to an email or on the telephone to anyone who has called you, and be suspicious if they suggest you call back - you can still get caught out. Under no circumstances ever give your PIN number to anyone else - even to your bank. Never open an email attachment from an unexpected, suspicious or unknown source.

If in any doubt forward emails, or describe and detail any other approaches (e.g., by telephone/text) to: webmaster@stgeorges.church  and we will advise if it is a scam. Do this before doing anything else!
