St. George’s Cathedral

 

It is sometimes forgotten that before Christianity spread to Europe, it had already taken root in the continent of Africa, and your visit to our Cathedral in Cape Town puts you in touch with a tradition that goes back to the earliest foundation of the Christian faith. Welcome to this place.

The Cathedral stands at the southern tip of Africa, but its architecture and style of worship points to our Anglican heritage. The daily round of worship and the prayers of those who pass through our doors maintain this place as a focus of worship and draw people of all walks of life into this space. Here we seek to live out our faith in God incarnate become human in Jesus Christ. It is for these reasons that this Cathedral has over the years been a sign of hope to many in their struggle for peace and justice, a struggle to be fully human.

God grant you peace in this place and may His peace go with you. Go well.

THE VERY REVEREND ROWAN SMITH, DEAN OF CAPE TOWN

 

Mission and Vision Statement

Adopted by Parish Council on 24th June 2001

We, the Body of Christ, wounded - pained by the journey of reconciliation that we need to walk - are an inclusive household of faith.

We accept, embrace and uphold each other as a Cathedral community.

We nurture our youth and children, exploring and expanding their potential, shaping their faith and empowering their lives. We respect and cherish the contribution of our elders.

We worship God through the creativity of music, art and liturgy.

We respond to God's grace by the generosity of our giving.

We apply our faith in the places where we live and work.

We recognise a special commitment to encounter Christ in suffering.

In this, we provide inspiration and challenge, healing and hope to our diocese, city and nation.

As the people's cathedral we are a market-place for truth and live our faith in continual transformation.

" ... this cathedral became widely known as a site and focus of resistance against apartheid. And so St George's won the splendid accolade contained in the title The People's Cathedral."

–- ARCHBISHOP DESMOND TUTU
