Kenyan aid worker to speak at Norwich church
Kenyan Aid Worker Abraham Mwangi will be reflecting about how churches in Norfolk can partner well with churches and projects in Africa. He will also be singing and speaking an event in Taverham with the Dumisani Drumming Group.
On Saturday November 25, morning Abraham will share his experiences at a half day conference called ‘Transforming our Overseas Partnerships’ which has been organised by the Diocese of Norwich World Engagement Group and Christian Aid and will be chaired by Bishop Jonathan. This will be a valuable opportunity for people to reflect together on how to make the most of our partnerships with churches and charities overseas and not simply be ‘givers’. It builds on a recent Norwich Diocesan Magazine with an overseas partnership theme.
Abraham works with people in Kenya who are often surviving on less than a dollar a day. His involvement with a maternal health programme has reduced childbirth deaths significantly. He works the development arm of the Anglican Church in Mount Kenya East. Abraham will share what he has worked well and what hasn’t helped.
At the half day conference there will be an opportunity to listen and ask questions and also time to discuss. This will be helpful for churches who have an existing partnership relationship, and those wondering how to start. Julian Bryant from Christian Aid will also be talking about what types of giving can help or hinder.
Venue: St Catherine's Church Hall , Aylsham Road, next to Mile Cross library, Mile Cross, Norwich, NR3 2RJ Time: 9.45 – 1pm Cost: £2.75

At 7.30pm on Saturday 25th November Abraham will be singing and talking about his work at St Edmunds Church in Taverham alongside the well-known Norfolk based Dumisani Drumming Group. The Dumisani Drumming Group are a lively and entertaining group and their shows often include African dancing.
The event is free and there will be a collection for Christian Aid during the evening. Parking is available at the Taverham Junior School nearby.
