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.


Events Public Health update

Due to the corona virus and the Government advice on social distancing it has been necessary to cancel a range of activities scheduled for the summer. The  St Georges Day Service which was fixed for April 19th has been put back to Sunday September 20th at 3pm. This event which involves Scouts, cadets and St John Ambulance groups is one of the key Services of the year and it is hoped that many supporters of the Garrison Church will be able to attend on the adjourned date.
The VE Day celebrations which we were planning with Greenwich Council in May at the Church have been cancelled, as has the Open Air performance of Midsummer Nights Dream on July 7th. This last cancellation was at the behest of the Heartbreak Theatre Company which had to make the decision whether to continue with its summer touring season and decided that in the light of the current restrictions it was necessary to make the decision to pull  all the venues in which Midsummer Nights Dream was due to take place.
We still hope to hold the Tramshed Theatre week-end of theatre and dance in July.

When Public Health regulations permit we will try to open the Church on Sundays (again subject to Public Health considerations. Visits at other times on request - to arrange a private visit please contact Tim Barnes on SEE 19th May 2020 UPDATE
