Chimbalame CCAP Church introduces English service

Written by  Esnath Kalawe

Lilongwe, January 17, 2018: The Chimbalame CCAP Church of Nkhoma Synod in Lilongwe, last Sunday introduced English service which attracted 125 worshipers mostly the youth.

Chimbalame CCAP is located in Mtandire location considered as disproportionately affected by more challenges in literacy levels as compared to other locations of the city.

Church Minister Reverend Fletcher Abel Makala told Malawi News Agency (Mana) that most youths in the church requested for the introduction of an English service to accommodate even people who do not understand Chichewa.

“Again, we realised that many people were coming to attend services but the church building’s capacity is too small to accommodate everybody.

Sometimes we receive visitors who hardly understand Chichewa so we want to reach out to them as well,” Makala said.

He further said patronage at the first ever English service was high and convincing as more than 125 members attended.

“Our future plan is to call other preachers from other congregations to minister at the church to inspire more people to come and join the congregation,” he said.

The church has more than 3000 Christians, 300 Catechumen and close to 2000 Sunday school learners.

One of the members Alinafe Nkhoma described the English service as welcome development and that most youths are happy.
