Sunday the 10th of September was the 50th anniversary of the first service of the united parishes of Old and New St. Georges following the closure of the Cocker Hill Church. Not ‘all’ the regular worshippers at the Old Church transfered to our current building and some found a spiritual home elsewhere, however a good number did make the transition, staying for the remainder of their worshipping lives and making a significant contribution to our activities.
Our annual Junior Church prize giving was held on Sunday the 16th of July when of our young congregaton were awarded books in recognition of their regular attendance. This was followed by a party with sandwiches, chrisps and buns. and ended with the lighting of a celebration cake which was then consumed to everybodies great enjoyment as you can see.
In 2016 we renovated the south side of our church, funded with the help of a grant from the 'Listed Places of Worship' fund. This work involved rebuilding the parapet, relining the gutter and replacing all rainwater pipes, then pointing the south elevation, as can be seen on this link . We have now applied for a grant from the 'Heritage Lottery Fund' towards phase two of this project, which is the renovation of the North side Parapet and gutters, etc., replacing all of our 177 year old roof, and updating our upper lounge kitchen area plus replacing the whole emergency lighting in all our building.
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 vicar is the Revd. Philip Brierley. Philip was an Ordained Local Minister at St George's and had been our Curate for many years. He was made Priest-in-Charge in 2013 and was licensed as Vicar on the 11th of September 2016.
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:
