Welcome to the Website of the Diocese of Johannesburg​

This website has been serving us well over the years but the technology, that it is run on is getting very old. We will be moving it to newer technology within the MyChurchIT platform that hosts MyAnglican. This means that, as a Diocese, we are going to rely on MyAnglican to manage more of the contents.

We will be communicating the process in the next few days as we plan to switch over to take place within the next week. All questions and comments regarding the website can be directed to

Why was this Logo chosen? An explanation may be found by

Bishop Brian Germond, the members of Chapter and the leaders of the 9 Resource Teams met in January, 2002. A gift from God, our shared Diocesan Vision was captured in writing after 3 days of prayer to discern God’s will; reviewing the previous 6+ years of Indabas, Synod Conferences and Diocesan structures; and the consequent discussion around the way forward for the Diocese of Johannesburg.

The full text of our Diocesan Vision – that inspired the creation of the Logo below – may be found by clicking here. The Vision was unanimously adopted, after being introduced to and debated by delegates and pastoral unit representatives, at the Diocesan Synod Conference in March, 2002.
