Mission Partners

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

This Month’s Person to Pray for:

Please pray for Canon Norman Bizimana. He has been Vicar at St. Mark’s, Ngagara, in Bujumbura, one of our link parishes in Burundi, for many years. This month he will be moving to join the staff of Holy Trinity Cathedral in Bujumbura. Pray for him as he leaves St. Mark’s and takes up a new role. Pray also for the congregation at St. Mark’s at this time of change and for Pastor Moses as he takes over as Vicar.

Youth Project

The youth project at St. Mark’s, Ngagara that we supported last year on Burundi Sunday is well underway with 95 children and young people between the ages of 5 and 23 yrs. engaged in a range of musical activities.

St. Mark’s, Gahosha

St. Mark’s, Gahosha has celebrated the official opening of the Vicarage, meeting room and another building by the Bishop of Makamba Diocese. In his speech the Vicar of St. Mark’s, Rev. Hermes Gatoto thanked us for our support with these projects and invited us to share in the parish’s 20th anniversary celebrations next year.

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.

St. Mark’s, Gahosha in Makamba
St. Mark’s, Ngagara in Bujumbura

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