Listening to our Brothers (& sisters) in the South
With our relationship with the Diocese of Lebombo in Mozambique, I am reminded that the church there is connected to the the Anglican Church of Southern Africa - situated on the southern tip of Africa. This Province was formerly known as the Church of the Province of Southern Africa
The Anglican Church in this Province was established in 1870 when its first Provincial Synod was held in Cape Town. It has grown over the years and now has 25 dioceses, found in the countries of Angola, Lesotho, Swaziland, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa and the island of St Helena (South Atlantic Island).
The bishops just met together, you can learn about their meeting here:
