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.


Hoping to reopen for events soon!

We are looking forward to reopening for events as soon as circumstances allow!

A Note from our Chairman

It has been very disappointing having to cancel so many events at the Church during the summer. But at least we are now open again on Sundays, and we are planning events in the coming months which will bring people back into the Church. It is impossible to firm up the details until the Regulations about open air events and social distancing have been clarified.

But the events which we are hoping to take place include:

July - Visit by the Ecclesiology Society

August - The Caribbean Forum Summer Party

August - Visit by the Victorian Society

August - Greenwich and Docklands International Festival - Dance Event

September - Church Fund Raising Event

September - St. George’s Day Service (rescheduled from April)

September - Evening film performance


We are also seeking to find a new date for the Ali Mac Band – Return of the Bird – gig which had been scheduled for 6th June, and was unavoidably postponed.

So please keep in touch via our website where we will put the details of dates and times as soon as they have been finalised.

Also please remember that we are keen for the Church to be used for private events. It is a wonderful venue for a party or reception, as soon as circumstances allow!
