11 March 2018, Arusha, Tanzania: In a spirit of vibrant hospitality, the Christ Church Cathedral of Mount Kilimanjaro Diocese, Arusha, Tanzania celebrated mass on 11 March, inviting fellow Christians from around the world currently participating in the WCC Conference on World Mission and Evangelism.
The cathedral, whose location in central Arusha historically marked the mid-point between Cape Town (South Africa) and Cairo (Egypt), has a long history as a central worship point for a mixture of local and international congregants.
Reflecting the call to mission, the church is active in the areas of Education and Health, and sponsors schools, hospitals, as well as charity work. With a particular focus on children, the church organizes a weekly “Compassion Saturday”, where children are welcomed to the church for Christian teachings, food and other support.
Welcoming the international visitors to an African worship experience, the service combined traditional aspects of the Anglican liturgy with contemporary African charisma, through choirs and dance. Bishop Stanley Hotay from the Diocese of Mount Kilimanjaro led the service.
