Communion Service

St Cyprian’s Anglican Church is a chapelry of St Peter’s Parish, Sidbury, in the Diocese of Grahamstown. The farming community in the area has been worshipping at the little stone chapel for 123 years.

We invite you to join our community in worship and Holy Communion at our Patronal Feast day service. The service starts at 10h00.

The building now consecrated as our church was first built to house the engineers constructing the nearby stone railway bridge for the Grahamstown-Alicedale line. A major renovation of the 120-year old building was undertaken with funds raised from last year’s fair.


St Cyprian’s, as part of the St Peter’s Parish, funds an outreach programme within the poorer community of Alicedale. The funds raised from our fair will continue to support this programme, as well as the Holy Cross School on the Highlands Road.
