Zimbabwe Anglicans are back in their churches!

Zimbabwe Anglicans are back in their churches!

The Anglican Communion News Service reports some very good news:

Thousands of worshippers took part in an historic thanksgiving service in Harare today to celebrate the return of St Mary and All Saints Cathedral and other properties to the Church of the Province of Central Africa (CPCA) and Zimbabwe Anglicans.


The special service, marked by joyful singing and praise, followed the CPCA’s recent victory in a long running legal battle with excommunicated former bishop Dr. Nolbert Kunonga who broke away from the CPCA in 2007 to form his own church. Kunonga and his supporters seized cars, churches, orphanges and other properties belonging to the CPCA claiming they belonged to him. Recently Zimbabwe’s Supreme Court ruled that he should return all the properties to the Diocese of Harare.

Anglican Bishop of Harare, the Rt Revd Chad Gandiya recalled the challenging times that the church went through. He said that, “all those five years we were driven from our churches and went into exile, life was not easy but God was with us. We survived and found grace in exile.”

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
