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.


Open Garden Squares Weekend

Open Garden Squares Weekend 2017

The Church participated in this event on the week-end of the 17th/18th June. The event is principally targeted on the garden squares in the Centre of London, but we were pleased to be invited to join. There were a number of venues in South East London involved in the scheme, some for the first time.

Numbers were a little disappointing; about 25/30 on each day. But those who did attend enjoyed the experience and were full of enthusiasm and admiration for the recent re-planting of the Memorial Garden and the cleaning of the roof over the Chancel.We raise about £60 for the Trust.

We also had a visit from the Regional Director for the event for the South London area and he too went away impressed and enthused by what he saw.

The Church is also opening on the afternoons of 24th and 25th June, as part of the Open Gardens event in ad of the Greenwich and Bexley Community Hospice and we hope that there will be good support for that event.
