In 2017, St. George’s Anglican Church celebrated its 225th anniversary.  St. George’s was the first established church 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.

Celebrating 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 celebrate our 225th Anniversary.  St. George’s is the oldest faith community in the city of St. Catharines, founded in 1792.

For all anniversary details, see our Anniversary Brochure

Jesus

In Jesus we see who God is and what God cares about.  We follow Jesus in order to draw closer to God and to better serve the world.

The Bible

We explore how these ancient stories become alive and meaningful, and a source of God’s guidance, to us here today.

The Anglican Church

The Anglican Communion is worldwide. It is known as “the middle way” – tracing its roots back to the earliest followers of Jesus and the ancient church, but with a modern-day charism of an “Open Mind” to the new thing God is doing in us and in our world.

Worship

We offer different styles of worship throughout the week, from the very modern café setting of our Wednesday nights, to the quiet contemplation of Sundays at 8am and the beautiful family service with choral music and pipe organ at 10am.

Music

Music has always been a way for people to connect more deeply with God. Music lifts our spirits and brings us into communion with one another. We offer music programs for people of all ages. Our worship services offer a wide variety of musical expressions, allowing us to pray more fully!

Serving

Our goal as Christians is to “seek and serve Christ in all persons.” We are engaged in meaningful service with those most vulnerable in our community and in our world. Find your life changed by learning to live for the sake of others.

  • Why I am Voting Green

    Image via Shutterstock/Andrii YalanskyiReminder: The views and opinions expressed in our Ministry Matters blog posts are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect any official policy or position of the Anglican Church of Canada.I know that it’s not polite to talk about politics. I especially know that religious leaders shouldn’t use the pulpit as a place to tell their parishioners how to vote. But I also know that my parishioners are confident in being able to think […]

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
