Imagine the huge challenges presented across more than 800 Christian congregations in four vast dioceses doing mission & holistic Community Development in two of the world’s poorest countries. MANNA’s work is needed today more than ever. You can help.

MANNA works in partnership with the 4 dioceses:

Mozambique – Lebombo

Bishop: The Right Reverend Carlos Simão Matsinhe 

The Diocese of Lebombo’s beginnings go back a long way to the 1890’s. It is located in the southern part of the country and is divided into 7 archdeaconries. Lebombo has 250 congregations (with 23 new ones being formed), 58 priests, 4 deacons and 295 catechists (lay ministers) and like both Niassa and Angola, it is growing. It has 21 ordinands at present, 8 of whom are women. It’s community development work comes under the banner of Anglican Social Action and is involved in education and health care. It has plans to build seminary to train more priests and grow the kingdom of God in depth and numbers across the diocese.

Mozambique – Niassa

Bishop: The Right Reverend Vicente Msossa  

The Diocese of Niassa, an Anglican diocese of Mozambique is vast. Located north of its sister diocese, Lebombo and next to the new missionary diocese of Nampula, it covers the provinces of Niassa, Zambezia and Tete. It is twice the size geographically of the UK and has 312 congregations and 40 priests. Niassa Diocese has grown a vibrant and extensive community development programme which works with HIV, nutrition, agriculture, education, water and sanitation.

Mozambique: The Missionary Diocese of Nampula

Bishop: The Right Reverend Manuel Ernesto

The Missionary Diocese of Nampula was recently created (September 2018) having been agreed by the Province of Southern Africa. It’s creation is due to the rapid growth of the Diocese of Niassa and the long-term strategic plans to multiply. It includes the provinces of Nampula and Cabo Delgado and is home to 8.4 million people. Nampula diocese has 15 clergy, 130 congregations, 9 parishes and over 450 catechists and 25,000 members. It’s community development work partners with Anglican Overseas Aid and it has a large refugee pastorate in Maratane Refugee camp.

Angola: The Diocese of Angola

Bishop: The Right Reverend André Soares 

The Diocese of Angola, part of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa is a very large diocese, encompassing the entire country of Angola. It is divided into four archdeaconries, Luanda, Lukunga Lozi (Songo), Nzadi a Lukiki and Uíge. It has a total of 63 congregations with 58,000 members. Like the dioceses in Mozambique, some of the churches are active in healthcare, education and community development. The Nora Sturges Health Centre in Lobito, established in 2003 is one of such projects.
