This year, on Sunday the 21st of December at 10:30, we are combining our Christingle service with our annual Nativity Play. The play will be presented by members of our Junior Church who will also be leading the service. Please come and support our children, and bring a toy to put under the Christmas tree for the Childrens society.
Our annual Christmas Fair was a great success and Santa was very busy in his Magical Grotto. Many thanks to all our visitors and to everybody who helped in any way.

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. Perhaps 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 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:
activities that we run as a church,
things which we do with other groups
all that our congregation members do in their daily lives and occupations.
