    PROJECT UPDATE - St. GEORGE'S PARISH CHURCH HAS A NEW ROOF

    After many year planning and fund raising by our congregation, and thanks to a generous grant of £233,000 from the 'National Lottery Heritage Fund' towards the £300,000 project we have finally been able to renovation the Church roof and gutters. 

     

    We are continuing to fund raise in order to carry out a major renovation project on our 179 year old historic RENN organ now we have a secure roof.

    O

     

    St George's Church Stalybridge is a community of Anglican (Church of England) worshippers. We have just licenced the Revd. Penny Warner as our new vicar after a period of interegnum and hope to resume all our normal activities.

    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.
