Introduction to parish

St George the Martyr is one of the ancient parishes of Southwark. Today it stands in the midst of an area that is undergoing exciting regeneration. We are developing a major restoration project, which will not only put the structure back on secure foundations, but will also enable the church to takes its place in the renewal of the area - as a centre for worship and meeting, for music and local history. We have a second place of worship at St Alphege, Kings Bench Street, which also houses the offices of a charity working with elderly people in the parish.
