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.


Rita and Derek receive Awards from The Mayor

Our two long standing volunteers Rita and Derek attended the Town Hall today - with a Trustee of the Woolwich Garrison Church Trust - for a ceremony to receive their thoroughly merited Royal Borough of Greenwich Outstanding Volunteer Awards - these were announced back in the Spring and the ceremony was delayed due to the Health Crisis. But it was worth waiting and they were given a warm reception by the Mayor Linda Bird who handed them framed Certificates of their achievement. Our congratulations and thanks go to Rita and Derek who both contribute so much to the Garrison Church.

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.
