Advent is a time of expectation, of looking forward, of anticipation. Advent invites us to wake up and to keep our eyes open to the ways in which God is becoming, and will become, more fully present to us.

Over 225 Years Young – History of St. George’s
“Lift up your hands in the Holy place and bless the Lord.” (Psalm 134)
In 2017, we celebrated our 225thAnniversary. Founded in 1792, St. George’s was the first established church of St. Catharines, making it the oldest faith community in the city of St. Catharines. Generations have found strength and peace here through prayer, fellowship and service. On any given day, you will see this building open and serving breakfast to the hungry, providing shelter to the homeless, and offering a place of prayer and faith for people of all ages and stages.
To see how we celebrated, see our Anniversary Brochure
In the example of Jesus we discover that everyone has something to offer and everyone has something to receive. To find where your gifts connect with our ministries, or where our ministries connect with your searching, find out more about our community of faith, St. George’s.

I always believed in God. But something happens when you walk through the doors of this church. I just connect in a whole new way.Terry Shergold
I come out of the church and I’m beaming. I talk about church to people, and I’ve never done that before!Michelle Scott
A place of welcome, support, faith and hope.Marc Delisio
I first came to St George’s for the excellent music, but over 9 years have come to love the people, the clergy, the many meaningful programs and opportunities for service.Rose Spraggon
a place to question and grow in faith whilst offering wonderful opportunities for service.Wendy Northcotte
St George’s has felt like home since we first walked in the door. God is here. Christ is here. The Holy Spirit moves through the love of the people.Doreen MacFarlane
very faithful clergy and laity, supports all walks of life. Home, friendship, opportunities to learn and grow in faith; community involvement and a very welcoming place. I did a lot of church shopping before finding St George’s.Vikki Coates
Advent Cafe provides an opportunity to connect with faith and spirituality in an informal and welcoming setting. Its "drop-in" atmosphere and easy-to-follow service makes it the kind of space that I, as someone who doesn't attend church regularly, find to be a simple addition to my life that lets me access the church in a way that is comfortable for me. As a music leader, I've been given the opportunity to find the divine in secular music and bring that to Advent Cafe; I am stretching my spiritual muscles and connecting with my gifts as a musician while also serving the community. I'm truly grateful for this role.Katherine Kerley
"I was baptized, confirmed, married at St. George's and have spent my whole life there. And yet still every time I walk in, I just have to say WOW!"Shirley Chamberlain
We have to make sure there is a future for St. George’s, not just a past.Paul
Ever since I started coming here, I’ve felt right at home. It’s very welcoming and I really like the outreach to the community.Linda
For a very long time, I was searching for a church that I could call home. I was looking for a church that was welcoming but, most importantly “walked the walk” with people living in poverty. A friend suggested I give St. George’s a try. Without hesitation, I can honestly say that I have found a home. Starting from my first visit to this day, I have been overwhelmed with the welcome I received the very first Sunday and every Sunday following; the numerous initiatives I could participate in to look after ALL of God’s children; and the amazing services and sense of community that I feel every time I walk into the church. I cannot thank all of you enough for filling my heart, soul and mind with love and compassion.Deb
St. George’s is a different sort of church. Not many places have an outreach program that makes such a big impact. We can see where our money is going and what it is doing.Kim
I feel very strongly that the Youth Choir is a huge asset to St. George’s. I am tremendously impressed... Let us value our youth and let them know we appreciate them.Betty
There is an energy and enthusiasm from the youth that is very infectious.Gary
