Administrative history

The Hamlet of Faulkner is located south of Fairford. St George's Church, Faulkner was established in 1938. Travelling Missionary Rev Cecil Mosdell, and Mrs Buckley, a staunch Anglican who lived in the district, worked together to establish St George. The building came from a local farm, and another settler donated the land. The DORCAS in Winnipeg provided and organ, prayer desk and bible, their W.A. provided the altar hangings and local people made the altar and the benches. The W.A. from St George, Crescentwood gave 30 chairs, a silver communion set and money for a chancel. Archbishop Harding dedicated the church. The mission was cared for by travelling missionaries and theology students in the summer, including, among others: George Kelly, Harry Daniels, Maurice Wilkinson, Ken Wankling, Len Fryer, the Rev Silverstone and the Rev Holmes. By the 1960s, the church was not in regular use and was vandalized. In 1971, the church was formally closed. The organ went to Fairford, and the building was sold to a local farmer as a granary.
