Welcome, and thank you for visiting St. George's Episcopal Church online. We hope that our website highlights the wide variety of worship, fellowship and service opportunities available.

For almost 300 years, historic St. George's has been an integral part of the community of Pennsville Township. In 1697, a number of Swedes and Finns settled on the New Jersey side of the Delaware River. These colonists were accustomed to attending services in the old church at Transbrook (Wilmington). The journey across the Delaware by canoe and sailboat was hazardous and often impossible. In 1706, the first priest serving St. George's, The Reverend Lars Tollstadius was drowned while crossing the Delaware.
