Administrative history

The earliest Anglican services in the Rosser district area were held in homes near Gross Isle beginning in 1890. The Rosser Mission was established in 1897, with points and East Rosser and Westfield schools. The two joined together in 1902 to build a church on land donated by HJ Beachell. The parish of Christ Church, Rosser was formed by The Right Rev Machray on 13 May 1902. Christ Church, Rosser was associated with St Michael, Grosse Isle (OW.034) until services stopped at Christ Church in 1927. For the next twenty years, the church was unused. In 1947 Christ Church was moved to Woodlands and rededicated as St George, after the Woodlands parish lost its church to a fire.

Custodial history
