A Welcome to

St. George, Cam

St. George, Cam

and

St. Cyr, Stinchcombe

St. Cyr, Stinchcombe

A warm welcome to our two parishes and to our website.

If you're looking for somewhere to worship, St. Cyr's Stinchcombe is the place to come for the beauty of its traditional Anglican worship, with some services according to the Book of Common Prayer.

St. George, Cam offers modern language Common Worship services including Daily Morning Prayer, Sunday Parish Eucharist with robed choir and organ, and our more informal Family Celebration with music group.

We have strong links with our local Church of England Primary School, Cam Hopton, and children are a very important part of our life and community at St. George. We also value our older parishioners, and hold services at our local sheltered housing complexes.

We are a lively, busy and welcoming community, learning, worshipping and serving together.

Please explore our site to find out more about us, our worship, ministry, mission and fellowship. If you're interested in our two historic Gloucestershire churches, you can find out more about them here.

Maundy Thursday

11am Chrism Eucharist in the Cathedral

Here the clergy renew their ordination vows and the oils for baptism confirmation and anointing of the sick are blessed. All are welcome to attend.

 

7.30 pm Agape and Eucharist meal in St George church followed by Gethsemane Vigil in the chancel.

 

‘Agape’ is the New Testament word for love and was the title of the fellowship meal of the early church.  It often occurred in association with the Eucharist and is frequently adopted by the contemporary Christians on the night of the last supper.  In this service we share together in the fellowship of a meal based on the Passover meal that Jesus ate with his friends at the last supper as well as sharing in the Eucharist.

 

At the end of the Eucharist and meal you are invited to enter the garden of Gethsemane (the chancel) for the watch, where we spent time with Jesus as he prays to his Father.  You are free to stay as long as you like here but will be asked to leave the church in silence.  The watch will end at 10.30 pm.

 

There will be a signup sheet at the back of each church for catering purposes.  We will ask for donations to cover costs of food and suggest that you bring your own drinks. 

 

Good Friday

All are invited to join with other Christians of all denominations in a Procession of witness to Cam Peak starting at 9 am outside St James, passing by St George’s church at around 9.45am. 

This is immediately followed by (or at 12noon) Easter Kids a fun time for the whole family looking at the Easter story.  This event is free and will include lunch, craft activities, stories and singing.

 

2 pm at St Cyr Devotions at the foot of the cross

Here we are joined by St George’s Choir for a reflective service with readings, hymns, choir pieces and silence as we sit at the foot of the cross and stay with Jesus in the last hour of his life.

7 am (yes this is the right time) Service of New Life and Hope at St George

Here we will experience the wonder and joy of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, renew are baptismal vows and light the new fire of Easter.

All welcome (Even if you don’t manage to make it to the service).  We will ask for donations to cover the cost of the food.

Church’s Towering Achievement! PDF Print E-mail
Saturday, 01 February 2014 19:26

The congregation and friends of St. George’s Church Upper Cam are celebrating, having reached the target of £68,000 set for their Tower Appeal.

The Appeal was started in the spring of 2012 and aimed to raise the funds necessary for essential repairs to the 14th century church tower. The money has been raised through a combination of fund raising activities, private donations and grants, including one pledging £13,000 from the Gloucestershire Environmental Trust with landfill tax contributions donated by Cory Environmental, and one of £10,000 from the Gloucestershire Historic Churches Trust.

A recent initiative called ‘Gift Sunday’ also raised almost £6,000 from personal donations made by the congregation.

Richard Elliott, spokesman for the Appeal Steering Group said, “For a small parish church to raise the massive sum of £68,000 within two years has been a magnificent achievement. We are hugely grateful to everyone who has organised, run or attended events and to the many kind individuals who have donated money to the appeal – often anonymously. We are, of course, also very grateful to the total of eleven organisations and charitable institutions that have so generously provided us with grants.
