[L'Eglise Episcopal au Rwanda - Rwanda] The Anglican Church of Rwanda has done a great job by carrying out reconciliation messages among Rwandans.

The church has managed to attract religious and peace experts to the country in an attempt to recover the hope which the country lost during the 1994 Genocide. Amid this, various peace crusades have been registered across the country.

The church has further brought together various religious denominations in the country under a faith body termed the Rwanda Inter-faith Body, led by the Anglican leader, His Grace Archbishop Emmanuel Kolini.

The church has in addition embarked on planting many churches across the country in a bid to ensure effective evangelization. Recently, six more churches were planted in the community.

In 2005, the renowned world evangelist, Pastor Rick Warren, urged Rwandan church leaders to plant more churches in an effort to strengthen evangelization in society
