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.


Success of Dinner and Auction of Promises - March 17th 2017

Our Dinner and Auction of Promises in aid of the Woolwich Garrison Church Trust was a wonderful and successful event...

The Dinner and Auction of Promises in aid of the Woolwich Garrison Church Trust was held on the 17th March 2017 at the Nelson Room in the Trafalgar Tavern in Greenwich. 160 Guests attended including the Leader of the Council and the 2017 Mayor of Greenwich, Cllr Brookes. It was announced at the Dinner that the Trust is going to be one of the Mayor’s designated charities for his year of office.

Both the venue and the food and drink were provided free of charge to the Trust by Frank Dowling to whom we are very grateful for such generous support. The Dinner was followed by an Auction of Promises which raised £8000 for the Trust. With the ticket prices added in the evening will have generated over £15000 for the Trust, approximately one half of which has already been spent on a comprehensive cleaning of the tensile roof above the east end of the Church and the incorporation of anti-pigeon deterrent features on the steel work (please read further News Story for information on this work).
