Mission Center: The Episcopal Church: Partnerships

Africa

The twelve African provinces are among the most politically and culturally nuanced, and often misunderstood, provinces in the Anglican Communion. The Episcopal Church's Africa Officer witnesses to the life and ministry of the Episcopal Church to Africa, supports the development of stronger mutual and interdependent relationships, and helps facilitate and support relationships between parishes and dioceses of the Episcopal Church and our partners in Africa.

Sudan is the largest country in Africa - it is about the same size as Europe. The Episcopal Church of Sudan has relatively recently been divided into 24 dioceses, many of which are geographically small and clustered in the south.  The Episcopal Church in Sudan has several Companion Diocesan Relationships with The Episcopal Church in the United States.
