Rector's Corner

Welcome!

We've been waiting for you!  It's true, because we believe that every person who comes into the circle of this special fellowship was sent by God Himself.  It's not by accident that we have the joy of meeting you.  So, above all else we want to express Christ's love to you with genuine, heartfelt warmth.  We're eager to know you, and we're excited to share with you the marvelous ways God is working in our church. 

It won't take you long to discover that this is truly a family, rich in the relationships that matter most.  Growing together, we worship, we serve, we laugh, we cry, we learn and we reach out to our world with life-transforming truth.  We reach out to you, as well.  Our doors are open,  Our hearts are open, too.  If you've been thinking, praying, searching and hoping for a place to belong, we say... 

Welcome to St. George’s Episcopal Church.  We are a community of baptized persons committed to our Lord’s Great Commandment and Great Commission endeavoring to grow a Great church in the Bedford Stuyvesant Community.

St. George’s Church may be defined by the following marks of distinction:

  • Vital and vibrant worship services fused with soul lifting music
  • A parish with a pool of talented and committed laypersons that enrich the mission of the church at the parish, diocesan and national levels
  • A vigilant, compassionate pastoral oversight of congregation and community
  • A ‘Mercy Seat’ where all God’s children can find a healing and nurturing welcome
  • A parish that produced a bishop in the church of the living God

Named after St. George the dragon slayer, our parish strives to be vigilant in combating “the evil powers of this world which seek to corrupt and destroy the creatures of God” (BCP Pg. 302). 

I invite you to come and be a part of this community of faith.  A community in which everybody, a community that strives to see the face of Christ in every person. Welcome!
