The Dutch Reformed Church of Durbanville was seceded from the old Mamesbury church resulting from a polite petition of residents of the Tygerberg to the governor, Lord Charles Somerset. This church became the "mother" congregation for a large area for the Tygerberg stretching from Kuilsrivier to Goodwood and became the kernel for the development of Durbanville. The National Monument Commision declares the church as a national monument in 1975. For more information contact the church office or read more in A.P. Smith's book about the history of the church.
