[EAB Press - Burundi] CHRISTMAS GREETINGS FROM THE PROVINCE AND GODíS BLESSINGS IN 2008

VIDEO ON WEBSITE


A video of the ministry of the Anglican Church of Burundi can now be viewed on our website Ė at www.anglicanburundi.org.

This is an exciting development and the Province is grateful to all those who have helped to make it possible, especially Nick Turner of Wateringcanmedia and those who support us through the communications project under the auspices of the Communications Department of the Anglican Communion Office in London that is funded from the Trinity Grants Programme of Trinity Church Wall Street.

NEW BIBLE SCHOOL

The new Bible School for Muyinga diocese that comprises two classrooms and an office is expecting to open in January 2008 with 10 catechists who will train for ordination. The building is being financed by contributions from the parishes.

SAMARITAN STRATEGY and VIVA NETWORK

How can the Church make disciples of nations? That was the central theme of the Vision conference organised by the Province and facilitated by Samaritan Strategy Africa and CMS designed to equip churches for holistic discipleship. It was followed by a one day workshop provided by VIVA Africa that looked at ways in which the Church, NGOs, the Government, and other organisations could work towards an integrated strategy that addresses issues and needs of children in Burundi.


MU TRAINING

MU leaders and pastors met in Gitega at the end of November to consider the subject of trauma healing. Claudette Kigeme, one of the speakers, shared some Scriptural insights into expressing emotion. The training was part of an ongoing programme to see how the Church can minister to the traumatised and encourage the elimination of violence against women.
