Our History

St Georges History

History ChurchDedicated on June 12th 1934, the Church building originally served a dual purpose as a Worship Centre on Sundays and a community Centre on Weekdays.

Grass CuttingCutting the grass in the surrounding field was a major task!

History HallEventually a separate Church Hall was built following a fund-raising campaign where people were encouraged to buy a brick for 2/6d.  Over 360 people queued to witness ‘their’ brick laid beside the foundation stone.  The building was dedicated in 1957.

Dragons MeetIn 1980 it was agreed that an area of land belonging to St George’s, including the Church Hall, would be sold for development as housing.  This area is now called St George’s Gardens.

The money raised was used to finance the building of a new Church hall, kitchen and toilets.  The project was completed and dedicated in 1981 and the hall is now widely used by various groups in the local area.

Dragons Meet was one of the first large scale events run by St George's Church in the new hall.

Jubilee RoomThe Jubilee Room is an extension to the side of the building which was added in 2003.

It provides a facility for small group meetings.
