Our vision is to be:
A vibrant God-Centred Church which is clearly growing spiritually, numerically and holistically

In 1847 Robert Gray became the first Bishop of Cape Town with the commission to plant churches and ordain clergy. When he died 25 years later, the 10 churches that he began with had grown to 63!

In 2003 Archbishop Ndungane commissioned Bishop Martin Breytenbach to spearhead an initiative to become known as “Growing the Church”. It was launched in 2007 with The Revd Trevor Pearce appointed as the first director.
