Episcopal Churches in the Horn of Africa

The vast majority of the Anglicans in this area are in the Gambella region of Ethiopia. The approximately 70 congregations are divided into 11 Mission Centres, with 3 or 4 new Mission Centres under development. These Gambella churches are served by 16 clergy and a number of lay readers. These churches worship in a variety of languages including Anywak, Dinka, Nuer and Opo. English-speaking churches in the Episcopal Area serve both ex-patriates and Africans who use English for a variety of reasons. These churches include St Matthew’s in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and St George’s in Asmara, Eritrea. A new English-speaking congregation has recently formed in Mekele in northern Ethiopia. The Area also includes Somali speaking Christians.
