welcoming our neighbours

The Open Table

This is a growing ministry of St George’s, building community with parishioners who are homeless and vulnerably housed

We go out every Monday night with a pop-up table between the two Shadwell stations, sharing food and fellowship with homeless parishioners. Once a month, there is also a fellowship meal in church (usually the second Monday of the month).

We meet to pray on Thursdays from 7pm, with Mass and a volunteer check-in on the first Thursday of the month, extended worship (“The Worship Table”) on the second Thursday, and Mass followed by the meeting of our community organising team (“The Action Table”) on the third Thursday.

Every Sunday, we serve breakfast from 9.30am (“The Breakfast Table”) until the Parish Mass. On the last Sunday, this is a full cooked breakfast - and means there is usually plenty for brunch after the service too.

parish prayer

Loving Father,
we thank you for calling us
to be a beacon of
Christ’s light
on the Highway.

For the sake of
our neighbours
and community,
inspire us to shine
with the light of
your welcome,
your forgiveness,
your challenge
and your healing love;
in Jesus’ name.

Amen.
