Can anyone recommend any Orthodox churches in or around the Cape Town area in South Africa?

I know of the Cathedral of St George.  Are there any others?  Eastern or Oriental?

Many thanks.

Might have to make your own church.
Jesus Prayer : the invocation of the name of Jesus, most commonly, 'Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me' , although there are a number of variant forms. Not merely a technique or a Christian mantra, but a prayer addressed to the person of Jesus Christ, expressing our living faith in Him as Son of God and Savior.

Here's a listing of several EO parishes and a monastery in Western Cape province. At least one (St Raphael's) is in a Cape Town suburb. http://orthodox-world.org/en/z/2969/South-Africa/Western-Cape

Thank you so much for this.

There would appear to be a plentiful diet of churches to visit.  I also found an Ethiopian Orthodox parish, which I might explore while I'm out there later this year.

Thanks, again.
