St. George’s Church in the Hoskers is a Local Ecumenical Partnership between the United Reformed Church, Methodist and Church of England. The church was founded to replace an Anglican church in Hart Common. The church was opened in 1996 and is located within St.George’s C of E primary school. The school is Anglican church-aided and was built to replace a school in Hart Common which was unable to meet the requirements of the growing community in the area. The church in Hart Common was also transferred to the school with some of the features of the old church being incorporated into the building. The services are held in the school hall and the church has one room (complete with Kitchen and storeroom) within the school specifically for church use.
The church has a close relationship with the school, with members of the ministry team regularly leading assemblies. The school has a strong Christian ethos. Many of the children are active in the church, making up almost 50% of the congregation.
