    TIME OF SERVICE

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

     

    Sunday the 28th of September was Keith and Juliana Stewart's last Sunday with us here at St George's, with Keith preaching his last sermon as our Assistant Priest. We all then joined them in a farewell Bring and Shared lunch when we wished them the very best in their move to Crewe. Many thanks Keith and Julianna for all the contributions that you have made over the years to our life at St George's.

     

    Unfortunately we have had to cancel the 'CALL MY BLUFF WINE TASTING' event planned for November the 1st but hope to run it sometime in the new year. The Fair Trade afternoon tea will still take place at 2:00 pm. We will also be holding a Quiz night on the 22nd of November, starting at 7:30pm.

     

    The 'New Seekers' bible study group are continuing their monthly meetings on the first Monday of each month (please see Calendar ), 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 event  will be  on Saturday the 1st of November. 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.
