    Easter at St George's

    As we approach Easter you are all invited to join our Lent course on Monday evenings at 8:00pm to help in the understanding of Easter.  We are looking at the book written by Bishop Stephen Cottrell entitled The Nail.

    You are also invited to join us in our Holy Week and Easter services which you can view here.

    TAMESIDE VOICES

     

    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. Their last concert was here at St Georges on Saturday the 22nd of March and raised £840 in support the Women's refuge and St Georges Church.

     

    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:

    • 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.
