“A Place to Be Known, Challenged and Inspired”

St. George's Church is a classic Gothic chapel, located in the grounds of St. George's School.

Built in 1928, the whole school congregates in the Chapel for two services weekly, one of which is an Episcopal Church service.  There are two additional optional services; a Friday night Compline service, and a Sunday Evening Prayer.

In 2005, the Chapel organ was completely renovated, and the Chapel now also features a choral practice space and a new pipe organ. Once a week the chapel choir, consisting of nearly 80 students, sings.

St. George's School is a private coeducational boarding school Middletown, just east of the city of Newport.  The school was founded in 1896 by the Rev. John Byron Diman, a member of a prominent Rhode Island family.  It sits on a hill overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

Wonderful inside, but may be worth checking on permission on arrival.
