FRIENDS OF ST GEORGE’S GRAVESEND
Built in 1732, the Church of St George, Gravesend has been described as the best example of a Georgian church outside of London. The church building survived the great fire in Gravesend in 1846, when it stood out above the flames of the old High Street.In the 21st century, time is taking a toll on this historic building and the Friends of St George’s has recently been formed to finance projects to enhance the future life of this iconic town centre church.
Sir Robert Worcester, founder of the MORI polling and research organisation, and one of Kent’s Deputy Lieutenants, has graciously agreed to become Patron of the Friends which will help to cement our excellent connections with America, created through the burial of Princess Pocahontas under the previous church building in the 17th century.
Membership of the Friends of St George’s will entitle members to regular newsletters and invitations to social events as well as providing opportunities for fund raising for special projects relating to the church fabric. An annual subscription will be payable.
Such special projects could include renovation of the beautiful stained glass windows.
