St George's Church, Hanover Square, London W1

Hanover Square, London W1S 1FX

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.

We have a reputation for dignified and traditional formal worship based on the Book of Common Prayer, magnificent music provided by our fine professional choir, and thoughtful preaching.

The church is open to visitors and for prayer Monday to Friday between the hours of 8.30am and 4.30pm and a priest is available by arrangement to discuss matters of faith and pastoral concern.
