Imagine the huge challenges presented across more than 800 Christian congregations in three 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 3 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 300 congregations, 55 priests, 4 deacons and 287 catechists (lay ministers) and like both Niassa and Angola, it is growing. 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 

Suffragan Bishop:  The Right Reverend Manuel Ernesto 

The Diocese of Niassa, an Anglican diocese of Mozambique is vast. Located north of it’s sister diocese, Lebombo, it is divided into 6 archdeaconries: Cobue, Lunho, Lichinga, Milange, Rio Chire and Lurio. It is twice the size geographically of the UK and has 442 congregations, over 65,500 worshippers and 61 priests. Niassa Diocese has grown a vibrant and extensive community development programme which works with HIV, nutrition, agriculture, education, water and sanitation.

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 the newest of the 3 dioceses and 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.

Ecos da Palestra Espiritual sobre #Cura #Interior - A Caminho dos 125 Anos da Diocese

Cura Interior, um tema cuja reflexão deve ser contínua pois mexe com cada um de nós, de forma particular e com as nossas famílias no geral.
A Palestra teve como objectivo despertar nos presentes a necessidade de encontrar a cura atraves da renuncia verbal dos pecados, cometidos por nós próprios, pelos nossos antepassados e com vista a salvaguardar o caminho recto das gerações futuras, pois assim diz a palavra “Não as adorarás, nem lhes darás culto; porque eu sou o SENHOR, teu Deus, Deus zeloso, que visito a iniqüidade dos pais nos filhos até à terceira e quarta geração daqueles que me aborrecem e faço misericórdia até mil gerações daqueles que me amam e guardam os meus mandamentos”. Êxodo 20:5-6.
O Evento foi brindado com a presença de Sua Rev. Bispo Carlos, dos Delegados Episcopais de Maputo, Ven. Rogério e Umbeluzi, Ven. Machado e representantes de Líderes de Grupos Eclesiásticos

A irmã Helia David desejamos muita saúde e que Deus continue abençoando a si e a sua família e de forças para o seu Trabalho no Senhor pois cremos que através deste, as almas presentes na Paroquia de São Cipriano, saíram daquele lugar com as suas vidas transformadas e com a missão levar esta boa nova aos demais e de curar a si mesmas e as suas familias.
Através da #Cura #interior continuemos "semeando a Fe, Amor e Paz" nas nossas famílias.
