Our Lent Appeal for 2017—‘Sowing Seeds for Tomorrow’—is on behalf of ALMA, our diocesan partnership with Angola and Mozambique. Our Lent Appeal will support ‘church’ projects, which would find it difficult to attract other funding.
Join us as we journey together with our vibrant, optimistic partners in Christ for Lent 2017 and start ‘Sowing seeds for tomorrow’.
“Capital Vision 2020 reminds us that although we are always caught up with the pressing needs of the present, we are poor disciples if we do not at the same time invest in the future. I am delighted that our Lent Appeal for 2017 is for ALMA, our Diocesan Partnership, and their vital work in education – ‘Sowing Seeds for Tomorrow’.”
The economic situation in both Angola and Mozambique is severe with oil prices falling and currency devaluations. When this is coupled with the long-lasting drought that both countries are experiencing and also the political insecurity in Mozambique it is hard for our partners to find funds for their larger projects. We will be joining in with the three educational priorities that they have identified as critical for the future of the church.
