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.
