Bombed during World War II, St George’s Garrison Church survives as an evocative ruin with recently conserved mosaics, and a modern canopy roof, now available for all to enjoy.


Carol Service 2020

We are delighted to have held our Carol Service this year albeit with limitations for well known reasons. The Service was led by Revd. (Major) Andrew White Chaplain CF, Officiating Chaplain, Woolwich Station and comprised Readings and Carols sung by the congregation, and notably singers from Woolwich Opera Works and the Plumstead Chamber Choir directed by Simon Hiller.

The Service took place on Friday the 18th December at 3 p.m. Our chair Tim Barnes welcomed everyone, and it was wonderful to attend a traditional event in the midst of these exceptional times. Readings were given by Peter Waller, trustee, representing our WGC Trust, by a young person representing Youth and future generations, by James Furber representing the local community, by Andrew White on behalf of Major Vicky Flood CO KTRHA representing the Military our close neighbours, and by Cllr Bird Mayor of Greenwich on behalf of us all..

We look forward to future Services and Events at St. George's and wish everyone - despite all - a Happy Christmas and Peaceful New Year.

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.
