Welcome to the website of the Denis Hurley Centre (DHC), a major new landmark building in the middle of Durban located between Emmanuel Cathedral, the Juma Masjid and Victoria Street Markets.
The centre is named after a man who for 45 years was the Archbishop of Durban, the 'scourge of Apartheid' and a hero of the city. The street on which it stands is already named after him too.
We are committed to working with people of all faiths to bring about change in the inner city - for people who are poor, homeless, hungry, sick, unemployed and refugees. We do this through various programmes - a clinic, a feeding scheme, vocational training, pastoral outreach - but also through simply treating people with the respect and honour they deserve as children of the one God.
To all who visit this site we hope you will come and visit our centre in person. Please let us know if you would like to visit, or volunteer or help raise funds to support our work. And wherever you are, and whatever your religious tradition, we ask for your prayers.
