St. George’s Anglican Church History

St. George's Church is a garrison church over 200 years old. It held its first official church meeting on September 27, 1785. The church was built with walls three feet thick using stones from the destroyed Fortress of Louisbourg. These stones came as ballast in ships (bringing the first settlers) from the Fortress of Caen. Rev. Ranna Cossitt's house was built close by and is the oldest house in Sydney. It is now a museum know as the Cossitt House.

In 1854 Sydney lost its permanent garrison. With no soldiers to keep the economy strong Sydney was in trouble. This affected St. Geroge's as well because this garrison church had been supported by the soldiers and government officials who were usually English and Anglican. And so St. Geroge's fell into hard times.

Coal mining brought revitalization to the ilsand and in the late 1800's shipbuilding and lumbering also brough people and money to Sydney. St. George's thrived again. Like so many churches, St. George's was subject to nature playing tricks on it. In 1873 the "August Gale" blew over the woden tower. It was two years before it was rebuilt. Again on August 27, 1888, the new tower, built of stone and metal was struck by lighting and damaged, but not destroyed. Over two hundred years later it still stands.

King George III granted St. George's a Royal Charter and so the royal Family attends when in the area. The Queen Mother attended in 1967.

Some of the Island's importand industries have closed (the Steel Plant, the Coal Mines) thus creating a lack of employment for our young families. As such, man families have left leaving churches with dwindling numbers, St. George's being one of them. After years of task forces and much consideration St. George's joined the amalgamated Parish of the Resurrection in 2004.

The power of Christian prayer Help me to avoid every sin
Thanks to Thee, O God, that I have risen today, To the rising of this life itself; may it be to Thine own glory, O God of every gift, and to the glory, aid Thou my soul. With the aiding of Thine own mercy, even as I clothe my body with wool, cover Thou my soul with the shadow of Thy wing. Help me to avoid every sin, and the source of every sin to forsake, and as the mist scatters on the crest of the hills, may each ill haze clear from my soul, O God.
