You may have wondered why you hear St George’s bell every day. We ring the bell at 12 noon each day to invite our community to prayer. We have received many words of thanks for hearing the bell every day. Thank you to everyone for your generous support for the Floodlighting of the Tower.
Like everyone else, St George’s church life has been significantly disrupted in the past months. From March 16 all services were cancelled in Anglican churches across Tasmania. The following week our buildings were also closed. The Anglican Diocese of Tasmania has responded by posting four different services on their website each Sunday. We encouraged people to watch these. From March 29 we started a virtual morning tea via Zoom. After Easter we transitioned to a full live church service via Zoom 10am Sundays. This has involved lots of learning new technology for all of us, sometimes with comic results! It’s a poor substitute for face to face, but we’re grateful we can continue to meet.
