Malawi Birmingham 50th Anniv AppealSupporting education across Malawi – Celebrating 50 years 1966-2016 between Church of England Birmingham and Malawi.

Make 2016 a year to remember…

In 2016 we celebrate 50 years of partnership between the Anglican Church in Malawi and in Birmingham. Over the last half a century we have sought to support one another in the work of God in our own contexts, celebrating faith together and showing mutual support in the face of our varying challenges.
