    On Sunday the 24th of June we celebrated the 178th anniversary of the consecration of our church and also the 25th anniversary of our vicar Philip's ordination to the priesthood. In the afternoon there was a Sparkling Strawberry Cream tea and this was followed by a Festival choral evensong. A very enjoyable day of celebration.

    In 2016 we renovated the south side of our church, funded with the help of a grant from the 'Listed Places of Worship' fund, as can be seen on here.

    Earlier this year we submitted plans to the 'Heritage Lottery Fund' for the renovation of the North side Parapet and gutters, etc., together with the replacement of all of our 178 year old roof, and also to update our upper lounge kitchen area and to replace/update the whole emergency lighting in all our building. We have now completed the development stage process and are now waiting for approval of the delivery stage grant and the faculty so we can start the project just after Christmas. The work will take up to 20 weeks to complete so hopefully the church will be ready for the Easter celebrations.

     

    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 and has 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.
