For Lent, the season leading up to Easter, the congregation of St. George’s will be immersing itself in the practices of Christian Faith. Find out more about the season of Lent here.

  • Lent begins March 6 (Ash Wednesday) with the Imposition of Ashes/Worship 6:30pm joint service at Comox Valley Presbyterian Church. Revs. Ingrid and Ryan will also be providing "ashes to go" at noon on the church lawn.

  • Throughout the season we'll be taking up Six Marks of Discipleship. Each week of worship will feature a core spiritual practice for following Jesus: Prayer, Worship, Scripture, Spiritual Friendships, Service, and Giving. Following worship, there will be a mini-seminar on each practice for adults as a way to learn or refresh on the basics. Bring a bag lunch, and there will be a children's program on the same practices during the mini-seminar time.
