St George’s Anglican Church in Cullinan
Published on December 30th, 2014
In preparation for Tommie and Michelle’s wedding in Cullinan, north of Pretoria in February, I visited and photographed the charming little St George’s Anglican Church.
For more than a century the Sir Herbert Baker-designed Anglican Church in Cullinan has served as the hub of Anglican worship in the area. Originally earmarked as a church hall, plans were later modified to create a small stone church. The foundation stone for the new church was laid in 1908 and the building was completed at a cost of £960.The church was designed by British architect Sir Herbert Baker, who was a dominant figure in South African architecture between 1892-1912.
The church was built in 1904 as the parish church for the miners. The church is a simple square structure with a corrugated iron roof. The first recorded meeting was held on April 22, 1906.
