St. George's is part of the Parrsboro/Port Greville Parish in the Anglican Diocese of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. The Rev'd Tory Byrne is the rector. The present building is the third the church has had since its founding in 1786. St. George's is a municipally registered heritage site as designated by the City of Parrsboro on September 28, 1987.
