    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 over £8000 for various charities in Tameside. They will be singing at the Tameside Hospital open day of Sunday the 21st of September.

     

    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 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 will have a Fair Trade Stall at our Spring Fair where Fair Trade Tea, Coffee and confectionary will be on sale 

    Our next Fair Trade event  will be  on Saturday the 20th of September. 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.
