Saint George's is a parish of the Classical Anglican tradition. That is to say, we not only 'use' the Book of Common Prayer (1962) at all services of public worship, but we understand the Prayer Book to encourage a way of Christian Living which seeks to offer ourselves, our souls and bodies as a reasonable, holy and living sacrifice. The life of the parish is formed by its endeavour to be shaped by Holy Scripture and true to the spiritual integrity of the Christian Tradition. The parish observes all the festivals and ember days of the liturgical calendar as found in the Prayer Book, including full choral worship on major Saints days. It maintains the traditional Eucharistic Lectionary which has guided the Church and has achieved its continual conversion to holiness for more than a millennium. Our parish enjoys a glorious musical programme which honours the ancient choral music of the church. We have been blessed with an extensive outreach effort in our neighbourhood (including a Soup Kitchen of more than twenty years and an active Community Youth Outreach) which reflects our understanding of how God's love must be shown to one another and in his world. Our parish is typical of many inner city ministries of the past two centuries, which have often been of Prayer Book Catholic theology and rich liturgy, believing in the real presence of Christ both on the altar and in the lives of the poor.

  • This Church is breath taking!! We poked our noses in the church and were taken back at the beauty. The pipe organ is majestic! So glad we stopped here.

  • The Parish of St George (Anglican) is a wonderful place to experience the Holy Mysteries of Christ. The music, in my humble opinion, is the finest you will encounter in a church this side of Montreal, with a very skilled and dedicated Choirmaster. The liturgy is wholly based on the Book of Common Prayer (1962) and is presented in a most solemn and reverent manner deserving of the respect that is due to Christ. There is a great deal of outreach that happens in the community with particular focus on youth through YouthNet and the weekly soup kitchen held in the hall.
  • The church is more than 200 years old. It was constructed for the Duke of Kent, and displays the same round architecture as The Princess Lodge and The Town Clock. The service itself is steeped in tradition and follows the Book of Common Prayer. The church has spread roots in the inner city community in which it stands- providing many outreach ministries. If you've lived in the city hour whole life, or just here for a visit, it is definitely worth a visit to this beautiful church.
