St Paul's Church is in the centre of Rondebosch.
Just above the Main Road, opposite the famous Rondebosch Fountain, you will find the Anglican Parish Church of St Paul. It has served the community of Rondebosch for more than 180 years. The church receives no formal funding and depends on the generosity of its congregation and friends to maintain the fabric of the building and the graveyard, and to support its ministry in the area.
Please feel free to visit us for a service or just to walk around the church and the graveyard.
The Mission Statement of St Paul's Parish is ...
to be a united fellowship of diverse people dedicated to worshipping God
and spreading the Gospel in the power and compassion of the Holy Spirit.
The Five Marks of Mission are:
- To proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom
- To teach, baptise and nurture new believers
- To respond to human need by loving service
- To transform unjust structures of society, to challenge violence of every kind and pursue peace and reconciliation
- To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation, and sustain and renew the life of the earth
Our lay ministers attended a special service on Sunday 23rd July, at the invitation of Archbishop Thabo and Bishop Joshua. See photos page .
