About Us

As Anglicans, we accept:

  • The Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testament as the rule and ultimate standard of faith;
  • The Apostles’ Creed and the Nicene Creed
  • The Gospel Sacraments of baptism and
  • the Eucharist
  • The historic episcopate ( Suggit, 1999)

We are motivated by love for all people, because God loved us first.

We follow Pauls teaching that all the various gifts granted to believers are to be used for the building of the church (1 Corinthians 14:5, 12, 16) in the surrounding communities of Bellair, Hillary, Seaview amongst many other suburbs spread across Durban in KwaZulu Natal.

Children are actively involved in the life of the Parish. The Youth led by Andile Zwane gather on a Sunday afternoon at 4pm and Sunday School children are led by Salo Soupen and Sherryl Reid during all the Sunday services.

Our women from different Diocesan bodies such as Anglican Womens Fellowship and Mothers Union, and those who belong to neither organisation, meet once a month under the umbrella of WAG – Women and God. They support various ministries in the church through sharing their gifts and talents.

Our men in the church are currently regular members who have no affiliation within the Diocese but support the life of the Parish.

We are led by Revd Dr Delysia Timm and assisted by Revd Beryl Florens as we live out our lives as disciples of Christ and built up as members of the body of Christ in the world. We have men and women layministers, who are licensed by the Bishop to assist in the liturgy and share in our pastoral work and social concern.

Education is a key element of our Parish life with sessions for Layministry, Baptism Classes, Admission to First Holy Communion Classes, and Confirmation Classes for both old and young led by Revd Dr Delysia, Revd Beryl and the Layministers with those particular gifts and talents.

We give thanks to God for the commitment and dedication of all the worshippers and we welcome new members.
