Make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge.”
2 PETER 1:5
Welcome to St. George’s Christian Resource Centre!
We invite church members to recommend books, prayer aids and other Christian resources.
Links to your recommendations can be included on this webpage and in the church’s monthly newsletter. In this way, people are free to purchase the recommended material that interests them, usually via Amazon or a Christian supplier such as Church House Publishing or Eden Books and Resources.
Please let us know if you are having difficulty when ordering or if a link is broken.
On the 5th Sunday of the month, we reserve a special slot in the morning service when people are invited to recommend a Christian resource that encouraged them. The only requirements are that the book/resource is one which recognises the authority of Scripture and that it is in harmony with the ancient Christian Creeds.
Prayer Aids & Cards
A selection of prayer aids and cards, including Christmas cards, may be stocked at special times of the year.
We also have a number of quite nice spiritual congratulations, consolation/bereavement, etc. cards available on the mezzanine.
They are available year-round for a small donation.
Christian Book Exchange
We have shelves of Christian books in the church lounge for anyone to borrow. Please feel free to make use of this resource. If you want to add to these, please drop the books in the Church Office.
