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.

Online Service Times:

Please note that the service from 10h00-11h00 has been live streamed for the past couple of week since we were moved to Alert Level 1. The link is always shared via our WhatsApp chat groups. Alternatively simply like and follow our Facebook page HOLY CROSS ANGLICAN CHURCH - ORLANDO WEST and watch the live streaming as it happens every Sunday from 10h00. The Virtual Service via Zoom has been stopped since we are now able to gather for in person worship with the number increased from 50 to 100 congregants per service. Speak to your Zone Leader to book a space for a preferred slot of 08h00-09h00 and 10h00-11h00. We look forward to welcoming and worshiping with you once again.
