    On Sunday June 8th we took part in the annual Walk of Witness when we marched down into Stalybridge to join in a United Service with several of our fellow Churches.

    TIME OF SERVICE

    Following a survey of the opinions of our congregation it was decided that our main Sunday morning service will start at 10:30am as of Sunday the 7th of September. All other service times will remain unchanged.

     

    We are now selling tickets for a 'CALL MY BLUFF WINE TASTING' event to be held here at St Georges on November the 1st, meeting at 7:00pm for 7:30pm.  There are a limited number of tickets available so get yours early.

    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. Their next concert will be at the John Street club, Droylsden at 7:30pm on Friday the 25th of July in aid of the Royal British Legion and Cancer Relief. Tickets available soon. They will also 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.
