This Month’s Person to Pray for

Pray for him and the other leaders as they plan programmes for over 100 children and youth to nurture their faith and encourage them to serve in the Church.

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.

You can find out more at www.anglicanburundi.org, where there is also a link to the Facebook page.
