(Print | Send a update)

P.O. Box 530019
Zambia (Africa)
Address-No.: 112174 / 1252

This church is closely related to the Church of Central Africa Presbyterian in Malawi (cf. Malawi). It is one of the five synods of this church. The work of the Livingstonia Synod in Malawi extended across the border into today’s Zambia. Once the national borders were firmly delineated and Zambia and Malawi became countries, those mission stations and the Christian communities surrounding them, which had been founded inside Zambia — Mwenzo, Lubwa, and Chitambo — under missionary leadership at the time, all became part of the United Church of Central Africa in Rhodesia and later the United Church of Zambia. However, the group of congregations around Lundazi which looked toward the mission station in Malawi, formerly called Louden and now named Embangweni, were cut off from the United Church of Zambia, which had no work in the Eastern Province; they continued their own church life linked with the Synod of Livingstonia. This group has now spread, connecting with other Malawian exiles in the Copper Belt and in Lusaka, and has constituted itself as a synod of the CCAP.
