From Observatory November 1904small

We are a multi-national, multi-cultural church in Cape Town, South Africa. As Mowbray is a cosmopolitan area, close to the University of Cape Town, Medical School, and Cape Town University of Technology campuses, we have members and adherents from many different countries in sub-Saharan Africa as well as the rest of the world. Our worship services are conducted in English, but many other languages are heard in and around the church as worshippers enjoy fellowship with one another. So, no matter who you are, or where you come from, you are welcome to visit us and, once you feel at home, become part of our church family. The church was constituted in 1903 in Observatory and moved into the newly built, larger premises in Mowbray in 1979.

We are indebted to the saints that have gone before and are striving to be faithful in carrying forward the work they started in obedience to the command of Jesus Christ to “go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” – Matthew 28:19-20.

We are currently studying the book of Galatians.

Every quarter we have outdoor activities.

There is also limited accommodation in the Brackendale Students’ Residence next door.

Praise & Worship

Men's Ministry

Women's Ministry



Mowbray Baptists have always been known for their singing. There is always a place for new singers, organists, pianists and  other instrumentalists of all kinds in the Worship Team.
So, if you can sing or play an instrument, Kathy Hall is looking for you!






Due to the present Covid-19 restrictions, meetings for spiritual edification and accountability and also social fellowship will be advertised, if and when they can be arranged.

All men are always most welcome to attend.







This caters for a group of young, professional and older women, and is often affectionately known as the Rose Ministry, the acronym from their simple motto: Reflecting Our Saviour’s Example”.
Undergirded by prayer, they focus on friendship,  outreach, crafts, the empowerment of women and service through food.


The church supports a number of missionary societies and individual missionaries in Southern Africa and other parts of the world.
The church also gives support to the Rooiwal Baptist Church on the Northern Cape border with Namibia. The church at Rooiwal was planted by our senior pastor some years ago.


You will find us at:

45 Main Road, Mowbray, Cape Town Vehicle entrance

The church, on the corner of Glencaird Road, faces Roughmoor Road with pedestrian entrance there.
