St George's Church in Benfleet is a community of believers in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour.  We are a family of Christians who seek to love God and to love others.

Our prayer is that you will come to know Jesus for yourself and in doing so become part of God’s family with us.


Here at St George’s we aspire to be:

  • People who proclaim the Good News of Jesus and welcome those who are new to faith.

  • A church that joins with Jesus in His ministry to our wider community.

  • An all-age community that is growing in number and in depth of fellowship with God, with one another and in Christian character.

  • People whose church buildings are a hub for the local community as an easy access to the life of the church.

  • A community where all are accepted and loved and are encouraged to be the people God wants them to be.

  • A church that listens to the needs and concerns of the local community.

  • People who are comfortable with new technology including Social Media providing for deeper networking and more effective communication of the gospel.

  • People who work closely with other churches.

  • A church where we are sent out into the world in the power of the Spirit to live and work to God’s praise and glory.

  • Worshippers who enjoy fresh charismatic dynamism in our church services.

Messy Saturdays are a time for the whole church family to come together and engage in lots of fun activities as we explore God's word together.  For families there are messy crafts, games, songs and stories which aim to help us explore God's love for us in his Son Jesus though the power of the Holy Spirit.

For teens there is a special space with games machines, board games and other activities.

For adults there is the prayer room and a seminar running during the families activity session.

The Messy Church sessions take place on a Saturday afternoon between 4pm and 6:00pm incorporating dinner which is provided.

“The Christian does not think God will love us because we are good, but that God will make us good because He loves us.”

C S Lewis




Baptism is the ancient Christian initiation into the family of God's Church.  It was instituted by Jesus in the Gospel's and something He himself underwent as a sign and symbol of his purity and rightness with God.

In our age baptism is offered to Adults or Children.  Adults are expected to be able to express their faith in Jesus Christ for themselves and for Children this is done on their behalf by Sponsors (Parents and Godparents).

Here at St George's we would hope that a desire for baptism would be accompanied by an intention to become a fully participatory member of the Parish Church demonstrated by attendance at services or other events.



We are always delighted to conduct weddings for people here at St George's.  In order to be married here you will need to show that at least one of the couple live within the Parish or that you have a "Qualifying Connection" to the Parish (eg A parent was married here, you were baptised here etc.)

We will be very happy to support you through the legal process for a church wedding.  You may also find the Church of England's own site to be of use in deciding on the type of wedding you would like.



Of course not everything is a happy event and there is also a place for sadness and mourning as a normal part of life.  At St George's we count it a privilege to be able to walk some of the tough bits of life's path with you.

Irrespective of whether you or your loved one engage in an active Christian faith we consider it an honour to be able to pray with those who are dying or mourning and to conduct a service with you to say your farewells.  Please contact us directly  or ask your funeral director to make contact with us on your behalf.

“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.”
