Welcome to St George's Altrincham
Opening the Church for Public Worship One More Step at St George's and Covid 19 The parish risk assessors have reviewed St George's safety measures in the light of the recent guidelines from the Church of England. The PCC wishes to proceed cautiously to care for all people who are at different stages and has decided that:- The current Sunday services will resume at 8:00am and 9.30am service in church. Mid week services to remain on Wednesdays Singing will resume at the 9.30am service in church. There is no booking system, however we ask all to take a responsible approach and socially distance wherever possible Life events (baptisms, weddings, funerals) can take place in Church. Baptisms and funerals should normally be held on Wednesdays. Other aspects of the risk assessment remain in place - social distancing and face masks, hand sanitizer, communion to have bread only shared, sharing of the peace to be non contact, no refreshments after church . Our procedures will be reviewed in a month when the picture hopefully will have become clearer and allow us to take another step along the way. We thank you for your co-operation and care in this time of recovery as we encourage people to come back to church There is no requirement to book for Sunday services
St. George's is the Church of England Parish Church of Altrincham. We are a lively and friendly community of people always ready to welcome new people.
Our worship is centered round the Eucharist, a service that some people may know as Holy Communion or Mass. We aim to be inclusive and our worship has dignity but a relaxed style. Everyone is welcome.
We cater for all ages and we have an excellent Parish Centre used by many groups within the Church and the local community both for learning and for fun. Happy Kids Altrincham Pre-School Playgroup uses the Parish Centre five mornings and three afternoons each week.
