Beckington is a lively, friendly and creative village community.There are two smaller communities Standerwick and Rudge in the rural hinterland. The village has a population of around 2,500 and a relatively new housing estate of 90 homes. 

St George's Church enjoys a close partnersip with two schools in the village. A Church of England First School and a Private Prepatatory School. 

The congregation is engaged in a variety of activities, has good links with the village. 

We have a strong team of lay leaders and a music group. It offers a variety of styles of worship.

We have a ground floor ring of eight bells and a dedicated team of ringers. 

We are currently looking at developing the church building to provide toilet facilities, a servery, and to improve our heating. This will open up the use of the building to our community for larger events such as concerts and other performances. The building has a very good accoustic and already has good lighting, sound system and data projection. 

We are working towards becoming an "Eco Church" mindful of our footprint and our responsibility to provide a safe haven for wildlife in our churchyard.
