It was great to hear from the Synod of Bishops in mid-February that the Diocese of Angola is now a full and autonomous Anglican Diocese.
The Synod of Bishops agreed that, after a long journey, the Missionary Diocese of Angola should be granted the status of a full Diocese, with Bishop André Soares as its first Diocesan Bishop. This is an immense achievement and a source of great rejoicing as we recognise how the Anglican Church in Angola has grown. We are looking forward to the inauguration of the new Diocese and to the installation of the first Bishop of the fully-fledged Diocese after Provincial Synod in September.
May God continue to bless this Diocese, Bishop Andre, & the Senior Leadership Team, as they walk further along this path of serving God in the Christian communities across the vast county of Angola.
