Hatley – Hatley St George

Hatley St George church is a Chapel of Ease in the Parish of Gamlingay, which puts it one notch down from being a parish church – however, it can be used for christenings, weddings and funerals.

Graphic promoting this year’s Hatley Harvest Festival, on Sunday, 2nd October, is split into two segments – the traditional Christian service in Hatley St George church (starting at 11.15 am) followed by celebrations in the village hall (from 12.15).

Sadly, there are no regular services at the moment, but on…

  • Sunday, 2nd October / 11.15 am / Hatley St George church – Harvest Service, followed by refreshments at 12.15 pm in Hatley village hall. These will include hot soup and rolls, sandwiches, pies, sausage rolls, quiche, salads, cakes and desserts. Licensed bar – and celebrations.

  • The building is owned by the Friends of Friendless Churches – and is opened every day from around 8.30 am to dusk for anyone to look round, for quiet contemplation. The churchyard, which is also a Local Nature Reserve, is owned by Ely diocese.
