Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. George’s Anglican Church (Isabel Street, Winnipeg)

The origin of Winnipeg’s St. George’s Anglican Church dates to 1883 when services were held in a converted schoolhouse under cleric James O’Meara. Three years later, a new church building was constructed at the intersection of Bannatyne Avenue and Isabel Street which, in turn, was replaced in 1894. Changing ethnic demographics of the city in the early 20th century warranted construction of a “mission church” in the southern part of the city, at Grosvenor Avenue and Wilton Street, in 1916. It later became the basis for the present St. George’s Anglican Church, built in 1957.
