Bishop from malawi
We had another fabulous visit from a Bishop, all the way from Malawi. In 2016, the Diocese celebrates 50 years of partnering with Malawi. Over that time, many people have been helped and it has benefited people from Birmingham as well as the citizens from Malawi. It gives our children a wider global perspective, important for their future as global citizens.
We look forward to another 50 years!
