The Tanzania Link
Leeds Diocese has a link with three dioceses in north-west Tanzania - the Dioceses of Mara, Rorya and Tarime. The link is about:
- Friendship - through visits, letters and emails
- Prayer - we pray for each other often by name.
- Practical Support - in whatever way we can
Around 80 churches in West Yorkshire are linked to churches in Tanzania as well as school to school links. There have been many visits in both directions. Many parishes pray for their link church every Sunday. Schools exchange letters and photos and learn about each other. Clergy training is supported and agricultural projects funded.
