Christ Church Bethlehem, near Yambio

During 2005 the members of Christ Church made thousands of bricks with the plan to replace their mud and thatch church building.

At the beginning of November, Bishop Peter invited a vistor to the Diocese of Yambio, Revd. Peter Marshall from Wales, U.K. to find funding for the new church.  By June 2006, the first money had arrived and work started on digging the footings. Stones had to be brought 12 miles from a quarry near the border with D.R.C.

The area has been much troubled by L.R.A. terrorists.

God willing, the new church will be consecrated and opened by the Rt. Revd. Peter Munde Yacoub, Bishop of Yambio, on SUNDAY NOVEMBER 6th, 2011, with many guests expected.
