Custodial history:
The foundation stone was laid on 21 April 1790 and the church opened under Lady Huntington's Connexion on 1 April 1798. It was consecrated on 17 January 1818. A new building was erected in 1877 on Oldham Road. A District was assigned by Order in Council, 14 September 1838(London Gazette, 29 March 1839), from the parish of Manchester. In 1844 by Order in Council, 7 October (London Gazette, 22 October) part of the District was lost to the new church of St. Barnabas, Miles Platting (M365/).The boundaries were altered in 1856 by Order in Council, 24 June (London Gazette, 1 July) and in 1860 by Order in Council, 1 August (London Gazette 3 August) the new church of St. Peter's, Oldham Road, took part of the parish (M299/4). On the closure of St. Barnabas the two parishes were united as St. George with St. Barnabas, with St. George's being the parish church, by Order in Council 19 December 1958 (London Gazette, 23 December) In 1972 by Order in Council, 23 October (London Gazette, 26 October), St. John's, Miles Platting (M194/) and St. Luke's, Miles Platting (M366/) joined St. George with St. Barnabas, the new parish becoming St. Cuthbert's, Miles Platting.
