Our link to Kagera


The Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich has had a partnership with Kagera Diocese in North-West Tanzania for more than 20 years. For information about this link please click here.

The Education Team encourages all schools to find out about life in Kagera. We offer an exciting and challenging day for all primary schools to explore this link, as well as materials teachers can delve into themselves.

"A huge thank you to your Kagera team, who visited Southwold Primary School today.  A fantastic day of workshops for all our children who were completely engaged."  Corrine Howarth, TA at Southwold Primary School.

Swahili Song for Children

‘Mungu na sisi milele’ or ‘God is with us forever’ was written by Andy Rayner to celebrate the Diocesan Centenary.  Suffolk schoolchildren sang it to the Bishop of Kagera on his visit to England.  Why don’t you learn it to sing in Collective Worship?
