    TIME OF SERVICE

    Note. Our main Sunday morning service now starts at 10:30am. All other service times will remain unchanged.

     

    Our annual Christmas Fair is on this Saturday the 29th of November, starting at 11:00 am. As usual, Santa will be in his Magical Grotto while upstairs there will be many stalls selling treats such as Home Bake, warm hats and scarves and many other things for Christmas presents as well as a bottle tombola plus our grand Christmas raffle. Downstairs will be our cafe for hot and cold drinks and warming snacks.

     

     

    The 'New Seekers' bible study group will be holding the final monthly meeting on the Monday the 1st of December in their quest to read and study the whole of the Bible in one year. Please pop in if you are interested as it is hoped to run a new series during next year.

    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.

    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.

    We will have a Fair Trade Stall at our Christmas Fair on Saturday the 29th of November where Fair Trade Tea, Coffee and confectionary will be on sale 

    Our next Fair Trade afternoon tea  will be  in the new year, dates to be published soon. 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.
