    Our Annual Spring Fair will be held on Saturday the 20th of May, starting at 11:00 am. At this we will be selling tickets for our grand draw, when you could win one of a selection of hampers. We will also be selling these draw tickets at TESCO'S on Saturday the 6th of May. Also among the many attractions will be a plant stall, selling bedding plants and hanging baskets. These can also be pre-ordered from Church and a list of the many plants that can be ordered is below. Click this tab to display a PDF version for you to print and complete. 

     

     

    The renovation of the south parapet and gutter, funded with the help of a grant from the 'Listed Places of Worship' fund, is now completed with the parapet rebuilt and the gutters reconstructed as can be seen on this link .  We are now in the process of applying for a grant towards phase two of this project, which is the renovation of the the North side Parapet and gutters, etc., replacing all of our 176 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 licenced 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.
