Overseas links

Bishops from our overseas links join with members of the Overseas Links group in a service of celebration for our partnerships in a church in Kent

Rochester Diocese enjoys flourishing overseas links with the Anglican dioceses of Harare in Zimbabwe, and Kondoa and Mpwapwa in Tanzania. It has a similar, flourishing partnership with the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Estonia.

Through our links with our companion dioceses, we aim to:

  • support and encourage each other in God’s mission,
  • to learn about each other’s history and tradition,
  • to share our spiritual and material resources and to build strong and lasting friendships, and
  • to advance the Kingdom of God within our dioceses.

These links are an affirmation that Christians from different cultures and backgrounds share a common heritage of faith and worship.

They provide an opportunity for schools, churches and communities in Rochester Diocese to form enriching relationships with Christians in other parts of the world.

These individual connections are all very different and are constantly evolving as more visits take place and relationships increasingly translate into action and joint projects.
