Mission Partners

We believe we are all one in Jesus, and so we support the mission of our brothers and sisters around the world.

 

Grit and Determination

What do you do if the road to your Church is washed away and you can no longer reach it?

You buy another piece of land and build another one!

That is what the congregation of Gakwende parish, a sub-parish of St. Mark’s Gahosha, are doing, and although the structure is incomplete they are already using it to meet together for prayer and worship.

This Month’s Person to Pray for

Please pray for Claudette Kigeme as she coordinates the work of Mothers’ Union around the nine dioceses of the Anglican Church of Burundi.

She has very recently been in Ethiopia training trainers from DRC, Uganda, Kenya and Ethiopia in adult literacy. Pray that the Literacy and Financial Education Programme that continues to have such an impact in Burundi will enable many more people to become literate and, through small businesses to generate income that will transform their lives and communities.

 

Celebration of Praise

The youth and children’s choirs and other musicians at St. Mark’s, Ngagara kicked off 2021 with a festival of praise.

The Anglican Church of Burundi

St Mark’s partnership with Burundi started in the 1970’s with a commitment to pray for the Church and the country.

We continue that link today in various ways but particularly through our support of two parishes, St. Mark’s, Ngagara and St. Mark’s, Gahosha.

Annually we have Burundi Sunday when we connect with one of those parishes and support a project of their choosing.
