HISTORY:
Formed in 1713 from its predecessor parishes, Hanover-with-Brunswick Parish has a long and vibrant history intertwined with that of King George County. St. John's is the mother church of Hanover-with-Brunswick Parish and was built in l843, following the relocation of the county courthouse to a more central location in the area. At the time, it was the only church in Hanover-with-Brunswick Parish. Rectors from adjoining parishes held services until l859 when the Rev. Alexander Shiras was called. Though he was from the North, he stayed with the churches after the secession. However, when the Protestant Episcopal Church of the Confederate States was organized in 1862, he felt he had to resign. The church has had an active congregation continuously since 1869.
