Who we are

The Anglican Church has a long history in Plettenberg Bay, beginning in 1851 with the construction of the little yellowwood St Andrew’s Church (a National Monument) on the Newdigate farm in Piesang Valley. St Peter’s Church in Plett Central is the ‘mother’ church for the Parish. Situated in a beautifully maintained garden, this impressive stone church dates back to 1879 and today is an extremely popular venue for weddings. A temporary church was built in The Crags in 1881 and subsequently replaced by the existing St Michael’s Church, which was consecrated in 1905.

We serve various communities in the area: St Michael’s Church – The Crags; St Mary’s – New Horizons; St Monica’s – kwaNokuthula; St Chad’s – Harkerville. We also have outstations – smaller areas which are a growing church community, some of which do not yet have a dedicated building for services: St Paul’s in Covie; St Simon’s in Kranshoek; St Markus in Wittedrift. On the 4th Friday of every month, we hold a service at the Formosa Garden Village retirement complex.
