Kagera Link Diocese

Diocesan Lent Appeal for our partner Diocese of Kagera, Tanzania

This coming Lent +Martin and I are asking you to consider joining in a diocesan Lent appeal on behalf of the diocese of Kagera. We have been linked with Kagera for 23 years and many have been enriched by our partnership in discipleship. Times are especially difficult in Kagera this year because of climate change and the consequent loss of reliable rains for crops, which has had a particularly devastating effect on two districts but is affecting all parts with reduced crop yields and income. Bishop Aaron has written: “Brothers and sisters in the Lord, I am writing to you to appeal for an emergency support for our people.”

We are asking every church to engage in this Lent appeal and there are resources on the page below for imaginative ways of doing so.

Kagera

The Anglican Communion has a network of links around the world. Our diocese has been linked with Kagera in Tanzania since 1994. Our common aims are friendship, understanding, praying, learning and sharing. Our link gives us opportunities to become partners in mission as we learn from each other how to be more effective in doing God’s work in His world.

Bishop Aaron

Bishop Aaron, Bishop of Kagera, writes

“Working with our sister diocese in Suffolk has given Kagera people the opportunity to discover that God’s love is so great that it is beyond our imagination. It is only through this love that we may become the same before the Lord.”


  • Kagera Basics-+

    Kagera is a beautiful region, mostly of steeply hilled savannah country. However it is one of the poorest areas in Tanzania. Most of its two million people live on less than a dollar a day. The church is growing rapidly as it serves the communities through spiritual nurture, healthcare, education and poverty alleviation with the aim …. “that they may have fullness of life in Christ” John 10.10.

  • How can I give?-+

    In Kagera Pastors and Lay Evangelists not only lead their churches in lively worship and biblical teaching, but also enable development projects which build self-sufficiency in the communities. The Diocese has very limited resources. Pastors and church leaders sometimes go without pay. For this reason, we have agreed to support the following projects:

    • Pastors Children’s Fund
    • Church and Community Mobilisation Process
    • Kagera Christian Training College
    • Ngara Anglican Primary School
    • Kagera General fund; this fund allows flexibility to help with specific requests and ensures our commitments to the funds above are maintained
