St George's Church Stalybridge is a community of Anglican (Church of England) worshippers. We are a Church in the liberal catholic tradition, with all kinds of preferred worship styles and where you can be assured of a warm welcome. Please click on the 'Our Web Site' icon for more information.
This year is the 175th Anniversary of St George's Church which was dedicated on the 24th of June 1840. The actual parish was originally consecrated in 1776 so is 239 years old.
During the year we will be holding a series of events to celebrate our Anniversary.
Our main events will be over the Anniversary weekend, with an open day on Saturday the 20th of June from 10:00am to 4:00pm when you will be able to look round the historic Church and Graveyard, view old parish registers and listen to music played on our historic organ. Food, toasties and Fair Trade drinks will be available. In the evening there will be a concert given by Tameside Community Voices Choir at 7:30pm. The Bishop of Middleton will preside and preach at our 10:30am Service on Sunday the 21st June and this will be followed by a shared Picnic in Cheetham's park (with games). The day will be rounded off with a 'Songs of Praise' evening service at 6:00pm. Everyone is invited to come and join in any or all of these events.
Please note that our main Sunday service starts at 10:30 am instead of 10:45am.
We gather for worship on Sundays and 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.
St George's Priest-in-charge is the Revd. Philip Brierley. Philip was an Ordained Local Minister and had been our Curate for many years.
