The church is working in some of the hardest to reach areas in Africa to tackle malaria.
The Province of Central Africa conferred its highest honour, the Order of the Epiphany, on philanthropists Christopher Flowers and Neville Isdell for their work alongside the church in tackling the disease during a service earlier this month.
The honour was given by Archbishop Albert Chama in St Stephen's Anglican Church, in Lusaka, in recognition of their leadership and long-standing support for the work of the church in eliminating malaria.
It comes ahead of World Malaria Day on 25 April when churches will pray and hold special events to raise awareness of the disease that kills a child every five minutes in Africa.
According to the World Health Organisation, the number of malaria cases has steadily fallen in the last decade.
