Welcome

A warm welcome to St. Saviour's Anglican Church website. Whether
you are just browsing or thinking of visiting we hope you find it helpful.

St. Saviour's has an interesting past and a significant present. In 1884 when the Bible Christians disappeared, Orono Anglicans purchased the present brick church, which the
former worshippers had built in 1869. The old (now demolished) Church Hall, built by the Bible Christians in 1845 was the first church in Orono.

In 1965, due to low attendance, only one service a month was held,
but the church remained active through the efforts of three women, Viola Morton, Irene Murray and Mary Morris, endearingly called the
'three Ms'.

There was a revival of membership in the 1970's. In 1984 the Parish Hall was replaced and named in honour of its construction superintendent, John Breen.

Today the church celebrates 129 years of continuous existence with active Sunday School, Youth Group, Servers, a professional organist and cantor and groups of lay people who read scripture and lead the Prayers of the People. The Anglican Church Women's group provides services to the Community too numerous to record. The repainting and decorating of the Church Hall, where local groups meet each week, is only the latest improvement to the facilities.

St. Saviour's continues to be a delightful family church spanning the generations and taking an integral part in a very supportive extended community.
