Welcome

Since 1860, the congregation of St. George’s Presbyterian Church has been meeting on the lovely Northumberland Strait in River John, Nova Scotia. We welcome you to our website and invite you to take a look at our beautiful building and also learn something about us as we serve God in this place.

After 150 years of faith-filled worship, we are well experienced and enthusiastic about what God has in store for the next 150 years!

Our Sunday service is at 11:00 each week and is conducted by The Reverend Gregory R. Dickson who came to live and serve the church in Nova Scotia in February 2011.

Our Music Director and Choir Leader is Marion Haliburton and Ann Heighton is in charge of the Sunday School.

    I am searching for information about the family of my husband Douglas Matheson (deceased 2009), and am wondering if there is anyone there who might help me. Douglas’s great grandfather was Duncan Matheson, born in River John in c. 1829. He had at least one sibling, Donald. We don’t know the name of their parents, who emigrated from Scotland. Does your church have records going back that far, or a cemetery, and would anyone like to help me search them for Duncan’s family? I’d be happy to pay for the assistance.
    Sincerely yours, Margaret Matheson

      Hello Margaret, and thanks for your inquiry.
      Our records and those of the village are sometimes intertwined, so we will have to look in more than one place… If you can be patient with us, we’ll do our best to help with your search.
      Rev. Greg Dickson

    I am trying to find the grave of my great-great grandfather Alex [Alexander] Fraser and his daughter, Catherine. Alex died in February of 1873, his daughter Catherine died in January, a few weeks before – she was 23 and unmarried. Alex was a farmer in or near River John. I know they were Presbyterian, but their death registrations do not give a burial place. Could you help me? or, direct me elsewhere?

    Thank you for your time.
