Chemainus was served by a missionary at Cowichan during the early 1860s. By 1866, a resident priest was assigned to Chemainus, Chemainus Mill and Salt Spring Island. Services ceased in 1887. In 1890, a missionary was appointed to Chemainus. The Church of St. Michael was built in 1891 and consecrated on August 29, of that year. Chemainus and Westholme parishes were subsequently paired and were affiliated with Cedar from 1895 until 1897, when Cedar was separated. Chemainus was served by the Archdeacon for Victoria in 1899 and by the Assistant Curate of Christ Church Cathedral in 1901, followed once again by the Archdeacon. Chemainus, Crofton and Westholme were formed into a parish in 1907. In 1928, the parish was known as "St. Michael's, Chemainus and All Saints', Westholme with Crofton." The Church of All Saints' was destroyed by fire in the late 1970s. (Services have continued in a church hall at Crofton.) As of 1986 (and earlier?) the congregation was served with the congregation of All Saints, Westholme. As of 1995 it was titled St. Michael and All Angels, Chemainus with All Saints, Westholme / Crofton.
