About Us


We are a vibrant, multi-cultural congregation with members from Britain, the US, Nigeria, Canada, Spain and many other countries. Many of us are Anglicans (Church of England, Episcopalian) though others come from the Roman Catholic or Free Church traditions.

We aspire to be an inclusive community and are pleased to welcome an increasing number of tourists and visitors to our services, as Málaga grows in popularity as a tourist and cruise ship destination. Visitors often comment on the warmth of their welcome here.


St George’s Church is the oldest Anglican church in mainland Spain. It is located in Málaga’s English Cemetery close to the centre of the city. It is about 300m east of the Malaga bullring, where Paseo de Reding becomes Avenida de Pries.

The church building, originally the cemetery chapel and the dwelling for the caretaker, was built of sandstone in classical style in 1839-40. With its fine Doric columns, this building was converted in 1890-91 to become the present St George’s Church. (For the previous 50 years, even before the appointment of the first permanent chaplain in 1850, services had been held in a room in or adjacent to the British Consulate.)


We are part of the Anglican Diocese of Europe and one of the three congregations that make up the Chaplaincy of St George, Málaga - the others being in Velez-Málaga and Salinas. Together we form one chaplaincy and one parish, covering much of the central part of the Málaga province, together with inland parts of the Seville, Cordoba and Granada provinces, served from Salinas.

Over the years, other chaplaincies along the Costa del Sol, from Estepona to Nerja, have grown out of St George’s.
