Worship is central to the life of Saint George’s Church. We gather for the Holy Eucharist five times a week. Each language Eucharist is a Rite II celebration from the Book of Common Prayer, and each reflects its own particular flavor. Our English and Mandarin worship leans in the direction of “high church” with choirs, and pipe organ. Our Spanish language Latino Eucharist is a lively percussion and guitar music. Each language ministry at Saint George’s has its own flavor. Periodically a Trilingual Eucharist is offered for the congregation as a whole.

Organ Recital Offerings
Saint George’s Church offers a free organ recital every Wednesday at 12:15PM during the Summer. This is a wonderful opportunity to listen to great organ works performed by our talented Organist and Choir Director, Mr. Phillip Lamb. It’s a delight to the ears to listen to this wonderful instrument in the beautiful setting of Saint George’s Church. Voluntary donations will go towards the restoration of the Aeolian Skinner Pipe Organ.
OUTREACH & SOCIAL JUSTICE
Saint George’s Church is currently engaged in various outreach ministries by partnering with service oriented organizations aimed at service to the broader community. The parish is also a neighborhood gathering place for community activism; and throughout the year sponsors events connected to services available to N.Y.C. residents by government and nonprofit organizations. Town hall meetings with elected officials have become a regular occurrence in Amelia Hall (our parish hall) where advocacy on issues such as affordable housing, gentrification, and Landlord abuse are championed.
La Jornada Food Pantry
La Jornada (the Journey) operates out of Saint George’s Church, and is the second largest food pantry in Queens. As many as 700 bags of groceries are handed out weekly to anyone in need. This is a ministry of service intentionally sharing the Gospel of Christ by modeling biblical servanthood.
