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 Preparatory 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 buildings acoustics are good, 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.
