The Order of Simon of Cyrene is the highest award given by the Anglican Church of Southern Africa to laity for distinguished service. It was established in 1960, during the reign of Archbishop Joost de Blank, following a proposal by Bishop Robert Selby Taylor.[1] Membership of the Order is limited to 120 persons. The Order is named after Simon of Cyrene, the first African saint.

Unfortunately, it has been impossible to update the list as neither the provincial nor diocesan bodies have an accurate and complete list of members of the order.
