Update on Diocesan news
Since our last newsletter much has happened in the MDSA which has not been reported. We held our annual synod at Schoenstatt Convent from the 5th to 7th November 2012, where apart from normal synod business two men were ordained to the diaconate. The Reverend Father Deacon Jeffrey Tsoeu was deployed to Botshabelo East, where he is due to launch a new congregation on the 17th February. This will be our second congregation in Botshabelo after St Peter's Mission.  The Reverend Father Deacon Wellington Rado was deployed to the North West Province.
On the 13th November 2012 the diocesan treasurer and general administrator - Mrs Jocelyn Kenyon-Hoare, underwent a total hip replacement which meant that the office was largely unattended for several weeks thereafter.  I am glad to say she is now well on the way to recovery and is walking well.
A new congregation is to be launched this coming weekend in Paarl, Western Cape under the dedication "Our Father's House", this will be under the care of Father Thomas Teketel.
Other enquiries about joining the ACC continue to stream in from both local and other African countries. We are looking to launch new congregations in the Northern Cape. 
It is with deep regret that we report the untimely death of Martha Seabi, church warden of St James, Sovenga, Limpopo, who struggled to hold things together for many years in the absence of a priest. She will be sorely missed.
It is with thankful hearts that we report that the deadly attacks against our Ethiopian congregation have decreased over the last few months, although some of their shops have been looted.

I am a member of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa (ACSA).
I really do not know what direction the Church is really following at present. When I read the Information about The ACC then it seems as if you are following the trends that I was used to as a child.

If been an ordinand in the Anglican Church but have since resigned. I am married for almost 23 years and have a wife and two children. A boy 23 years of age and a girl of 19 years. Both of them are at university.

I would like to know more about your church as it seems to have an order about it when it comes to worship and liturgy.

Have your say:
