Here at St George’s we want to be a church who seek to Share Life and Love Leeds. As part of this, when people come through our doors we want them to be greeted with friendly faces, relaxed and able to meet with God. In September there will be lots of new people settling into St George’s, and a team of friendly people are essential in making those initial connections. We need people from a range of different backgrounds and Networks, who can simply chat to people and help them to feel at home. If you are able to help, please contact Lisa.
