11 March 2018, Arusha, Tanzania: Young and old, women and men, children and elderly — bringing together a congregation of over 1,000 people, the Arusha Mjini Kati Lutheran Church gathered to celebrate Sunday service on 11 March, together with international visitors participating in the WCC Conference on World Mission and Evangelism.
The church, which bears its name from its central location in Arusha, Tanzania, has a history of more than 100 years, and is an active body in Evangelical outreach, spreading the Gospel throughout Tanzania.
Through “creative ministry”, including drama, music and artistic expression, the church explores new ways of engaging young people in the church, and in proclaiming the good news. Bishop Mary Ann Swenson from the United Methodist Church, vice-moderator of the WCC Central Committee, preached during the service, reflecting on what it means to have faith in the face of hardship, based on readings from Mark 4: 35-41.
