St Hugh’s Church in Newton Park is the historic ‘mother church’ for Anglicans
in the western suburbs of Port Elizabeth.

Our church is an attractive structure with a prominent square tower that can still be seen from many parts of the city, despite the growing number of high-rise buildings in the Newton Park business district.

But the real church at St Hugh’s is its people: a varied community of different ages, cultures, and interests. We are united by our shared commitment to Christ as the One who draws us into worship, ministry, and mission.

Learn more about us from this downloadable leaflet, Welcome to St Hugh’s.

Update: The Revd Mike McCoy has stepped down as rector of St Hugh’s with effect from 28 February 2014, to devote himself to theological education. Until his successor has been appointed, the parish is under the care of The Revd Canon Relton Groepe, an assistant self supporting priest. Please contact the parish office for more information.
