Holy Trinity Anglican, St George, OntarioSt George, Ontario is just north of Brantford. The Holy Trinity congregation was established in 1954. Services at first were held in a local school then the current church building was constructed with the first service held in June 1956.

Until 1967 Holy Trinity was in a 2-point with St. Mark's Anglican, Brantford. After a rectory was acquired Holy Trinity was made a single point charge. In 1983 it was tied to St. Luke's, Cambridge. In 1987 an arrangement was made with St. James, Paris where a curate would live in the rectory in St. George and Holy Trinity would share the cost of the curacy with St. James.
