Bath and Wells has enjoyed a Companion Link with the Anglican Church in Zambia since 1978. Praying for each other, learning from each other, challenging each other, and meeting each other; exchange visits, parish links and personal contact have strengthened the chain of prayer and fellowship.
A parish link is a wonderful way for your community to build a relationship with a Zambian parish based on mutual support, prayer, sharing in the Gospel and fellowship. The focus is very much on friendship rather than charity and there are many ways in which to grow this partnership, such as:
- Prayer during services
- Sending church magazines
- Establishing a webpage or Facebook page for keeping all involved up to date on activities in both countries
- Joint projects in each of your respective countries/towns/churches
Bath and Wells has over 50 parishes with links in Zambia. Scroll down to read some of their stories. If you have a link story to tell do let us know.
