St George’s History

The Foundation Stone, seen inside the Church on the left of the west end, was laid by the Lord Lieutenant of Surrey, Viscount Middleton, on 23rd August, 1902. The Church was finished and consecrated on 24th October, 1903 by the Bishop of Winchester, as Badshot Lea was then part of the vast Diocese of Winchester. The interior of the church can be seen here.

For most of its life the Church  remained ‘unfinished’ – the southern aisle was built as a ‘temporary’ structure. Then in 1999 a Church Room was added, funded largely from the sale of land adjacent to the church. You can see the church room here. This redevelopment also saw the demolition of the Old Parsonage and the building of a new Vicarage. (The Vicarage is at present is privately let.)

There are regular services on Sundays and the new meeting room is used for both church and community activities.

You are very welcome to pay us a visit at any of the services, or if you just want a quiet place to pray or meditate, you’ll usually find the Church open during the day.

The grounds can be seen here.
