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.


Service of re-dedication

7th April 2019 at 3pm

This service was to recognise the completion of the restoration works which had been on-going since the start of 2018. It was followed by tea and refreshments, and an opportunity to see the newly accessed crypt. We heard readings from M Louise Haskins, five German writers, and Maxim Gorky; there were musical performances by the Air Cadets Band and by members of the Trinity Laban Conservatoire. Hymns were enthusiastically sung. The Blessing was given by the Archdeacon of Lewisham and Greenwich.

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.
