This will be a garden honouring and celebrating the Commonwealth and Gurkhas - a memorial to the contribution of the Commonwealth and Gurkhas, with planting and features drawn from countries near and far, a place to reflect for local people and visitors alike, where we can learn more about our History and Ecology. Find out about our plans and the historic relevance of the Commonwealth and Gurkhas to the Church and Greenwich. See the proposed plans here

St George's Garrison Church in Woolwich, with its modern canopy roof and stunning mosaics, is both an evocative ruin and a contemporary space. Designed by Thomas H Wyatt in an Italian-Romanesque style, the Church was built between 1862-63 to serve the Royal Artillery in Woolwich. Today it is run by a local group, the Woolwich Garrison Church Trust who are committed to making it available for all to visit and enjoy. Directly opposite the Barracks in Woolwich, South East London, come and enjoy its beauty and peaceful garden.
