Goodwood St. George's C/E Cemetery
The Church of St George the Martyr is situated on the southern side of the city of Adelaide, South Australia, about four kilometres from the city centre. Built and consecrated in 1903, the church, with its adjacent rectory, stands in attractive well-kept grounds and has been carefully maintained throughout its history.
St George's has been regarded always as having adhered to the catholic faith and practice of the Anglican church, which have been exemplified by the devotion and loyalty of its people and the continued use of dignified ritual and ceremonial.
The interior of the church is impressive for it contains many fine ornaments and carvings which are well placed to add lustre to the inspiring architecture. There is an excellent two-manual pipe organ of some thirty two stops, an experienced choir and several competent organists to support a wide range of music used for the principal mass on Sundays and also at other times. The new English Hymnal is used.
While not a wealthy parish, St George's has no debt and has always paid its diocesan and other accounts promptly and in full.
St George's is a vibrant community whose lives are enriched and empowered by their love of God and all the blessings that love brings.
