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.


We remember

Remembrance was observed at St George's in this pandemic year albeit not as in years gone by. Wreaths have been laid by the Army and by Woolwich Garrison Church Trust. The Last Post and Reveille were sounded on a bugle which was present and used at Ypres in the First World War.

With gratitude and sorrow we remember those whose lives have been given in conflicts past and present, in particular members of the Royal Artillery so closely associated with our Church. 

We hope that next year Soldiers from the Barracks and King's Troop will join together with members of the local Community in our traditional Remembrance Service.

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.
