As part of the Traditional Anglican Communion (TAC) our worship is based on the way our Anglican fathers taught us.  We use the Book of Common Prayer as a means to build on our faith.  Our services are inspiring, meditational and uplifting.  Above all, we are Christians, we serve God with pride and devotion.

At Groenkloof Life Hospital, where the chapel is located, we assist staff and patients in difficult times.  One of the many callings for Christians is intercessory prayer and we have a group of dedicated members that visit the staff and patients regularly for prayer or just a friendly conversation.

In 1993 the break was made from the Church of the Province of South Africa as the liberal agendas being promoted by the CPSA were not accepted.  Continuing in the Anglican faith we were taught by our fathers, we grouped with the Traditional Anglican Communion and kept to the teaching of the Catholic Faith as it was used in the Book of Common Prayer.

We started services in houses and garages and clergy had to be self-employed to sustain their ministries.  We now have the use of a beautiful chapel in the Groenkloof Life Hospital.  Bishop Michael Gill and Br Ronnie are the responsible clergy that minister in the hospital and wider Pretoria community.

The TAC in Southern Africa grew rapidly and there are now a number of parishes.


 

The San Damiano Crucifix is an important icon for us.  You will see it on the front of our pew leaflet every week.  Read more about the crucifix in this link:  San-Damiano-Crucifix.pdf


Readings for the week: Second Sunday in Lent

Almighty God, who seest that we have no power of Ourselves to help ourselves: Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; That we may be defended from all adversities which May happen to the body, and from all evil thought which may assault and hurt he soul: Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Almighty and everlasting God, who hatest nothing that Thou hast made, and dost forgive the sins of all them that are penitent: Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of Thee, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. .
