This year is the 175th Anniversary of St George's Church which was dedicated on the 24th of June 1840.
We are also pleased to announce that we have been able to obtain a grant from the 'Listed Places of Worship' fund to help us undertake some badly needed repairs to our 175 year old roof and gutters. We are now advertising for tenders for the first stage of this work to be carried out early next year with details on this Church Care link.
During the year we have been holding a series of events to celebrate our Anniversary as described here. Our programme for the rest of the year is
On Sunday the 15th of November we had a parish celebration meal after the Sunday morning service. Venue was at the Stamford Golf Club, and as you can see here a great time was had by all.
And of course on Saturday the 28th of November we will are holding our famous Christmas Fair with Santa in his grotto, many goodies on our upstairs stalls and great snacks and drinks in our lounge cafe.
This will be followed by our Advent Carol service on Sunday night at 6:00pm so please come and join us.
We would also like to hold a Rose Queens' reunion sometime in the near future and would be pleased to hear from any ex-Rose Queen who would like to take part. Please contact us by e-mail using the form above, or by phone.
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 had 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.
