It is with much excitement that we announce the creation of the New Missionary Diocese of Nampula, Mozambique with Bishop Manuel Ernesto as the Missionary Bishop! The diocese will be inaugurated on 16th March by Archbishop Rt Rev Thabo Makgoba and we look forward to sharing the photos and news from it.
The Diocese of Niassa has been growing at such a pace over the past 10 years+ and so there have long been plans to multiply this diocese. This new Diocese is made up of the Provinces of Nampula and Cabo Delgado in northern Mozambique. Now these plans have been realised, Bishop Manuel has been busy on his first visit, since this news, visiting the Community of Mueda, Parish of Malema, Nampula.
Please pray for him and the Anglican churches of this new Diocese that the Holy Spirit will bring a love of the Lord Jesus and ‘life to the full’ to reach all communities, far and wide with this Gospel of Good News.
