    One man went to mow - but not in our churchyard!

    On Thursday night - Friday morning (29-30 June) someone broke into the garage in the compound on George Street in Stalybridge (behind the Travellers Call) where we store our petrol driven mower. The perpetrators lifted the gates off the hinges, broke into the garage, and stole the mower. It's a John Deere sit-on mower, (MX65 JVD) and is marked with smart water. The mower was used by our team of unpaid volunteers to maintain the Church yard at the expense of the congregation (NOT the council)
    If you know anything about its whereabouts, please contact the police and help us to recover the mower, so that we can continue to keep our churchyard at St George's nice and tidy.
    Thank you.

     
     
     

    Many thanks to everyone who attended or participated in our Annual Spring Fair on Saturday the 20th of May. It was a great success as can be seen in these photos.

    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:

    • 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.
