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.


St George’s Day Service

5th May 2019 at 3pm

All were welcome, our annual St George's Day service is especially for Army, Navy and Air Force cadets, Scouts, St.John Ambulance, and soldiers. It was attended by the French and German Military Attachés. A family friendly event, tea and cake were served after the service. We heard readings by young members of St John Ambulance, Air Force Cadets and the Scouts The address confirmed the contemporary message we draw from the life and death of St. George centuries ago, the importance today of religious tolerance, that members of all religious groups are vulnerable to attack- witness terrible recent events and new research. And so mutual support and togetherness is key.

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.
