Welcome you to the website of Holy Cross Anglican Church in Orlando West, Soweto. 

We boast with a very rich history especially, with the Hector Pieterson Memorial next door. We are not far from Nelson Mandela's historic home and the Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu's home. We are a home parish of the Sisulu family, Zeph Mothopeng, Mbuyisa Makhubu and many more. It is a parish where Fr Trevor Huddleston CR served as a parish priest. This is a home that many feel at home in. 

When you visit our Parish you will feel the vibrancy during worship. Our church choir is one of the best in the Diocese and as such singing (whether in the form of hymns or choruses) is always at its best. As we together take part in the promotion of the Ministry of all believers as outlined in the Diocesan Vision, we strongly encourage you to visit Holy Cross where we strive to always be a relevant and vibrant Christian Community.
