The Archdeaconry of Saugeens of the Diocese of Huron is in Grey and Bruce Counties, Ontario. It is a mostly rural area with Owen Sound the largest city (2006 pop. 21,753). The 27 congregations are in 11 parishes.

It includes Christ Church, Meaford, Ontario known for its six stained glass windows created from fragments of English and European church windows bombed in the Second World War.

Parish of Hanover and Durham, Ontario
The Archdeaconry includes the Parish of Hanover and Durham, Ontario. In 2007, after many years of fund-raising St. James Anglican, Hanover was made fully accessible with an addition complementing the original church building. The main floor addition includes an elevator, a handicap accessible washroom and a large narthex for meeting and greeting parishioners. Wide stairs give access to a finished basement that provides a storage area and access to the original Parish Hall.

Anglican Parish of the Bruce Peninsula
Christ Church, Lion's Head, Ontario
The 6-point Parish of the Bruce Peninsula consists of churches in Wiarton, Lion's Head, Tobermory, Howdenvale, Cape Chin and Sauble Beach.

It is noteworthy that in January 2008 when their rector, the Ven Dr. Jawn Kolohon, was appointed to St. George's, Owen Sound, his replacement at the Parish of the Bruce was Pastor Brad Mittleholtz of St. Peter's Lutheran Church, Wiarton. For several years, congregations of St. Peter's (Lutheran) and Trinity (Anglican), both in Wiarton, had worshipped, worked and played together, sharing worship services, study groups, fundraising events, skating parties. After a couple of years, shared ministry extended to all churches in the parish and included occasional use of Lutheran liturgical rite in Anglican churches and an Anglican rite in the Lutheran church.

The Lutheran Evangelical Church of Canada has been in full communion with the Anglican Church of Canada since the Waterloo Declaration was signed in 2001.

St George's, Owen Sound, Ontario

Owen Sound is located on an inlet at the southern end of Georgian Bay, 190 km northwest of Toronto.

The parish's first place of worship was a log building used as a wagon shop during the week. A frame church was opened in 1852. Owen Sound, then known as Sydenham, was the base for Rev. Arthur Hill Ringland Mulholland. During the period from 1849 to 1856, Rev Mulholland conducted services at 18 preaching stations in what would later become Grey and Bruce counties. He conducted one service each Sunday at St. George's with services every five weeks at 15 of these preaching stations and every two weeks at the other stations.

The frame church at Owen Sound was replaced by the current stone building in 1881. The Parish Hall was built in 1898. The church was renovated in the 1920s and in 1968.

Rector is the Ven. Dr. Jawn Kolohon, Archdeacon of Saugeens.
