After a year of not having a permanent commitment on Sunday mornings I have just been offered the Bass vacancy at St. George’s, Hanover Square….I even made the newsletter! The choir consists of 10 singers and is conducted by Simon Williams.
St George’s is the parish church of Mayfair. Splendidly refurbished in 2010 it was built between 1721-1724 to the designs of John James, as one of the Fifty Churches projected by Queen Anne’s Act of 1711. The reredos is from the workshop of Grinling Gibbons and frames a ‘Last Supper’ painted for the church by William Kent in 1724. The windows contain Flemish glass of the early 16th century from Antwerp.George Frederick Handel was a regular worshipper at St George’s, which is home to the annual London Handel Festival.
St George’s is much more than just an historic building. It’s a hard-working church that serves the community in Mayfair and beyond. There are regular services held each day, except for Saturdays, plus many other services throughout the year. Special celebrations at Christmas and Easter, and also our Patron St George’s feast, are the highlights of our year.
St George’s is first and foremost a living place of Anglican liturgy and worship, with our main Sunday Eucharist sung by our superb choir.
Services are held each day (except Saturday) and use the traditional language of the Book of Common Prayer.
All our services are free of charge, and any one can and is welcome to attend.
On Sundays the sung Eucharist is at 11am.
