Known as the “People’s Cathedral” for
its role in the resistance against apartheid, St. George’s Cathedral is
the oldest cathedral in Southern Africa and the mother church of the
Anglican Diocese of Cape Town. We invite you to visit our historical and
beautiful building and to be part of an active and dedicated
congregation, contributing to the life of the Cathedral and the broader
Cape Town community.
St George’s Cathedral is both the Metropolitical Church of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa and a congregation in the Diocese of Cape Town. As such it serves many people of diverse backgrounds, both within and outside our own congregation, who look to the Cathedral for leadership, spiritual guidance and sustenance.
All that we do at the Cathedral is
undertaken in the spirit of trust in and gratitude for God’s overarching
love and the belief that through compassion shown to others, whoever
they may be, God’s love is manifested in the world.
