About Us

We are a diverse group of parishioners. We have three different types of worship service and a variety of ministries that provide numerous alternatives to serve God.

We are a very active congregation. At St Pauls we are an intellectually informed and spiritually mature community who value the liturgical heritage of Anglicanism in South Africa.

Through prayer, music, readings, and dialogue we strive to fill ourselves with God’s Spirit so we can spread that Spirit to others.

In response to the Diocesan vision of “Loving Communities,” we aim to “love God, love one another, love our neighbour and the environment around us and become a loving model of the society we want to see and pray for.” In affirming differences and embracing the diversity we are “in the city, for the city and with the city.

Our Vision is for St Pauls to be a beacon in the heart of the city of Durban, a Christian community which is loving, non-discriminatory, welcoming of each other, accepting and understanding of different cultures,values and ways of worship, serving the community around us, especially those who are homeless, survivors of abuse and those who are marginalized

Our Mission is related to that of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa, with its vision ACTS (Anchored in the love of Christ, Committed to God’s Mission, Transformed by the Holy Spirit), and its priorities: Liturgical renewal and transformative worship Discipleship – including theological education, formation and leadership development prophetic ministry – including advocacy in education, nurture of the young, women and gender, environment and health.
