Welcome to Historic St. George’s Church and National Landmark, a treasured church in Methodist history and an active congregation in Old City, Philadelphia. Take a moment to explore these pages and discover something old and something new. In this, our 245th year, we invite you to a place in history, a path to the future — join us for the journey.
At the moment, we have an art exhibit on display that has been generating a lot of important conversations. The artist, Bonnie Mettler, produced a series of paintings called My Racial Ignorance, exploring topics such as Jim Crow, Emmett Till, and Lovings vs. VA. The works are on display in our social hall until June 8th.
On Sunday, June 7th at 7pm, Bonnie's husband Bill will share the stage with an African American storyteller, Denise Valentine, to explore six generations of their families in America and how their experience and knowledge of race evolved. Bill and Denise are master storytellers who will keep everyone spellbound.
