The Parish Church of St George the Martyr, Waterlooville
Film Club -
A good “old style” musical complete with invisible orchestra and the most unlikely people bursting into song and dance -
By kind invitation of David and Sue Hodgens, we held an open air Evensong followed by a feast of cheeses, pate, bread and fruits, followed by bowls of delicious strawberries and cream, in their beautiful garden at Edge O’ Beyond. And also of course “the sparkle” -
Fr Ray Chapman
Fr Ray Chapman’s 40th Anniversary of Ordained Ministry on 29th June was celebrated with a Holy Eucharist of Thanksgiving in St George’s Church, followed by refreshments in the church hall.
Youth Club Meal
St George’s Youth Club invited members of the congregation to a meal on 2nd July in the Church Hall. On the menu was broccoli and mint soup, shepherd’s pie and veg, and gateaux. All was beautifully cooked and presented, and served to our tables by waiters and waitresses. Entertainment was provided by a local magician. A most enjoyable evening.
Songs of Praise, 10 July
This was the 53rd and last concert of the 2011 Waterlooville Music Festival.
After some neat Music Festival marketing -
Terry Stevens was the Musical Director and Nigel Smith energetically dashed from organ loft to piano and back (several times!) as accompanist.
The winning hymns in the vote were: Harvest: We Plough the Fields and Scatter; Christmas: O Little Town of Bethlehem; Thanksgiving: Now thank we all our God; Easter (overall winner): Jesus Christ is risen today.
