St George Edgbaston

Let there be light


St George’s angels have answered our Appeal and there soon will be light in the church!

Our very good news that we want to share with you is that present funding for the new lighting design is now sufficient enough for the PCC to commit to the installation of the new lighting system while carrying on with the Appeal.

Anthony J Smith (Gloucester) Ltd, Lighting Designers and Engineers should begin work by the 1st or 2nd week in May and will take up to 12 weeks to complete the installation.

The church will be closed to visitors during the working week while the contractors are on site because of the dangerous high level works to be undertaken. However, we will still be holding services in church every Sunday as Covid restrictions allow.

Weekday worship, also, will continue to be held, but in the Whitmore Room instead of the Lady Chapel. Morning Prayer at 9 am Tuesday through Friday and occasional Eucharists for feast days etc. will be accessed only via the Whitmore Room door.

We are very excited that this project is about to begin after planning and fund raising over the past 4 to 5 years!

Thank you everyone
