About St. George's Church Netherfield
St. George's Church Netherfield is firmly rooted in the Anglo Catholic tradition of the Church of England. We are part of the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham and within the Gedling Deanery. We are under the Pastoral Care of the Bishop of Beverley. We also belong to the Mission Society of St. Wilfrid and St. Hilda.
The Church of St. George the Martyr is situated in the centre of the small town of Netherfield, 3 miles east of Nottingham, just outside the city boundary. The church was built in 1885 to serve the rapidly growing population, at that time, of railway workers and their families. it is the Parish Church for the town of Netherfield.
We are a small, friendly and welcoming congregation who seek the Lord Jesus in our love and care of each other. We treasure our Anglo Catholic tradition but we are modern rather than fossilised in our worship. As a church we are looking for the growth of Christianity within our community and growth in our congregation. Our worship is centred around our Sunday Parish Mass.
St. George's Church is open every Sunday for our Parish Mass at 11am.
This is a Sung Mass with Sermon.
A wide variety of traditional hymns and newer worship songs are included in this service along with easy to sing Mass settings.

From earliest times, Christians gathered at regular hours during each day and night to respond to God's word with praise on behalf of creation and with intercession for the salvation of the world. By the fourth century, if not earlier, morning and evening had emerged as the pre-eminent hours for the offering of this sacrifice of praise.
The services of Morning and Evening Prayer help Christians of our own day take part in this privelige and duty which belongs to all God's people. They may be celebrated in a very simple form, or enriched with a variety of optional chants and prayers.
The Church of England Daily Prayer feed is here. The Daily Office is a way of praying with the church community worldwide in a service which has been part of the Christian tradition from the very earliest times.
