Easter at St George's
As we approach Easter you are all invited to join our Lent course on Monday evenings at 8:00pm, starting on the 10th of March, to help in the understanding of Easter. We will be looking at the book written by Bishop Stephen Cottrell entitled The Nail.
Many thanks to everybody who helped with or visited our Christmas Fair. Santa was kept very busy and the mince pies and mulled wine went down a treat. The cafe and upstairs stalls were well attended and the day was enjoyed by all. The money raised is a welcome addition to our funds to help us pay our bills. The church is wholly maintained by the continued generosity of its congregation as we receive no public funding or outside financial help. All contributions are gratefully received.
ANNUAL JUNIOR CHURCH PRIZE GIVING
Some of the junior Church members who received prizes this year pictured with our new priest-in-charge. There are more photos in our photo album.
TAMESIDE VOICES is a group of amateur singers who come together to practice every Thursday evening here at St Georges. In the two years they have been formed they have raised around £8000 for various charities in Tameside. They will be another concert here at St Georges on Saturday the 22nd of February starting at 7:30pm so come and support them and St Georges if you can.
Visit our recently updated Rose Queen gallery (on the 'about us' tab), or view our Photo gallery and see if you can recognise old friends. Prehaps you have photos that help fill in the missing Queens. A new gallery of pictures of New St. George's Whit walks has been created which will also test memories.
St George's Church Stalybridge is a community of Anglican (Church of England) worshippers.
St George's new Priest-in-charge is the Revd. Philip Brierley. Philip was an Ordained Local Minister and has been our Curate for many years.
We gather for worship on Sundays and Tuesdays during the week. This is usually for the Eucharist (or Holy Communion) that we believe is the central act of Christian worship.
We also meet in order to be of service to others. This takes different forms:

We are a Fairtrade Parish and have promised to serve only Fairly Traded Tea and Coffee and to work for justice for the world's poor.
Our next Fair Trade event will be on Saturday the 22nd of February, marking the beginning of Fair Trade Fortnight. We will be open from 2:00 pm to 4:00pm with refreshments and fair trade drinks, and you can buy Fair trade products from the stall.
Please come along and enjoy a pleasant chat and a look round our 174 year old Parish Church and view our memorial plaques and decorative windows. Our Church yard has over 500 headstones dating back to the 1840's and includes several war graves and the memorial to the first MP for Stalybridge.
