Dear TZABA Supporters and partners

It is with great pleasure that I attach the latest TZABA Newsletter.

As our chairman, Canon Carl Garner says in his Introduction: 

"A magazine or newsletter like this is a key way of keeping us informed about, and interested in, what is happening in the dioceses with which we are concerned. It also provides information about the projects and activities our grants have supported, which all helps to shape and inform our prayers.  

So welcome to this new incarnation of Partners, and  let us pray “God bless Africa, guard her children, guide her leaders, and give her peace, for Jesus Christ’s sake. Amen."

Thank you for your ongoing support.

Have a blessed Easter.

Sandy Elsworth



TZABA has its roots in the 19th century when it was an association of people in British parishes, most of
whom had lived and worked in Dioceses in Southern and Central Africa, and, on their return to Britain,
wished to maintain their connection with the Church in Africa. As the initials would suggest, the Association (eg Rhodesia changed to Zimbabwe) has kept updated and its members meet annually in June, whilst keeping in touch through “PARTNERS”, a journal which we produce twice yearly, at Easter and Advent, containing contributions, news and views from the 13 Dioceses we support in the Capricorn belt. We rely heavily on our companion Bishops in those Dioceses to keep us
aware of the needs and projects within their see. Today, TZABA administers a number of capital funds whose income is
restricted for particular purposes, and raises other funds which are at the disposal of the Trustees. We see ourselves as one channel among many supporting the Church in the ‘Capricorn Belt’ of Africa and informing the wider Church about the developing life of those Churches. We are a UK registered Charity No.238146
Further details about TZABA can be obtained on request by using the contact form or chat function.
