About > Woolwich Garrison Church Trust

Woolwich Garrison Church Trust

The Woolwich Garrison Church Trust was formed in 2016 with the support of the Heritage of London Trust Operations. Its board of Trustees are mostly long standing residents of the Royal Borough of Greenwich. Each one takes an active role in the management of St George's. 

A local trust

The Trust (Charity #1168633) is composed of thirteen trustees, led by the chair Tim Barnes. It is responsible for the management of St George's - the maintenance of the fabric and improving facilities, organising Services and events, arranging volunteers, and is supported by the Friends Group. The Trust raises funds for specific projects. 

The Trust operates the site and has a lease granted in 2018. 

To review the group's constitution, business plan, or to see a list of trustees, please see the Charity Commission website and / or contact us.

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.
