Moravian Church in Malawi

Unity Prayer Day Offering

In 2021, the funds raised from the Unity Prayer Day Offering will be going to support the work of the Moravian Church in Malawi for a Church House.

They have requested financial support:
1. To offer a space for worship and fellowship in the capital city, Lilongwe, especially as there is no current congregation there.

2. In addition to being the capital, Lilongwe is also central to the rest of the country making transportation easier. Additionally, it is close to the seat of Government and other institutions.

3. The building will aid the work the church is undertaking at Dzaleka Refugee Camp. This is less than 30 minutes drive from Lilongwe.

4. Set down roots and help grow the church economically.

The cost estimate for establishing the centre including buying of land in a semi urban area would be about €30,000.

Building a Moravian Centre in Lilongwe, Malawi

The Moravian Church in Malawi became a full Unity Province in 2012 with around $5,000 communicant members. As well as congregations and projects in towns and villages the Church in Malawi works near refugee camps supporting people from Burundi, Somalia and Rwanda.

However, there is no land or building where Moravians can meet and worship in the capital city of Malawi, Lilongwe, despite many Moravians coming into the area. Therefore, funds raised through Unity Prayer Day, on 1st March 2021, will go towards the construction of a centre that will serve a congregation, the community and the Provincial Board in Malawi. Such a construction will go towards strengthening collaboration with ecumenical and other aid partnerships and it will respond to local Government requests for building upon chartable work already committed.

Land will be allocated through consultation with the government and the Unity Appeal seeks to raise $50,000 to support the building work.

If you would like to support the appeal you can do so in the following ways:
Card payment: please telephone Church House on 020 8883 3409 who can take payment over the phone.
Cash: donations to your local congregation.
Cheques: should be made payable to Moravian Union Inc.
