Livingstonia Synod institutes church in Dedza

170

As boundary wrangle between Synod of Livingstonia and Nkhoma of the Church of Central African Presbyterian (C.C.A.P) continues, Synod of Livingstonia has extended its reach in the central region by instituting a church in Dedza as a congregation.

Speaking on Sunday during the instituting ceremony, Moderator of Lilongwe presbytery of the Synod of Livingstonia Reverend Lewis Mwazembe said despite having its sister church in the district (Dedza C.C,A.P of Nkhoma Synod), the important thing is that the churches should continue the role of the church in bringing peace and love in the country.

Mwazembe: With Nkhoma we are coworkers

He said lack of peace and love pose as a sign of the church’s failure.

“Peace and love is an important role which the church have to take, so in Malawi we need peace, without peace then as a church we do not know what we are talking.

“We have our sister church here the Nkhoma Synod of the C.C.A.P, we are co-workers in the vineyard of God, so we are all working towards one goal thus bringing peace and love in the country,” he said.

Mwazembe also disclosed that the church has put a number of measures in building relationships with other churches in order to ensure that its newly instituted congregation (Dedza) should be strong.

He said: “The minister is already here, he is preparing it to go further by visiting members of the church and encouraging them and also building relationships with other churches.”

On his part, Deputy Clerk of the Lilongwe Presbytery of the Synod of Livingstonia Reverend Timothy Nyirenda said the church has plans to reach every trading centre in the central region where there is need of the word of God.

According to Nyirenda, although the synod has its branches in all districts in the region including congregations at Kanengo, Likuni and Ngwenya in Lilongwe and others in Kasungu, it will extend to other areas.

Said Nyirenda: “As Livingstonia Synod, we are fighting hard to reach every trading centre where people do not know the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

The newly instituted congregation (Dedza) opened its doors in 2009 and at the moment has a number of prayer houses in the district including Lobi and Mphunzi.

You foolish Galatians!Rise and see that you do not have time!What message have you carried?Which christ are you preaching?

  5. The boundary wrangle doesn’t exist. Nkhoma synod allowed Livingstonia synod to do as it pleases. Livingstonia has been installing churches in the central region of which some of them are fighting against each other .

  6. CCAP means church of central Africa politics.ndalama ya ine ya pledge musamakatumbwe nayo pokalanda malo a eni ake,kunyengera,kulanda malo and many more

  7. I wonder if this is from God. The church now loves money more than preaching the word. It is sad that this is happening and imagine in the Livingstonia Synod there are internal squabbles. Where is the light and salt God said we are? Busy into administrative issues. One thing I know is that you will be heard accountable for misleading His flock. As our church leaders you must be ashamed

Nononono men of God you’re now politicians just surrender the posts give it to other pple who fear God osati mbava inu Mulungu akukanthani zoona mwasokeretsa nkhosa zake

  18. Are we seriously fighting over who may serve God’s word to whom??? Good grief! I believe it should be a simple matter of practicality, who can reach where the easiest.

  19. CCAP – ONE CHURCH – ONE SYNOD – ONE GOD

    That’s the only solution.
    Otherwise, the leadership is being seen as interested in earthly things

  25. How is the structure like of the CCAP? Do you have one central office that coordinate all presybteries? If not then it’s time you had one. This may help in away

  26. If u suffer, suffer for good.If u don’t fight they will know that u belong to Me(Jesus)but if u fight one another the kingdom of GOD is not like that.

Atsogoleri athuwa chakula ndi dyera,akuopa kuti akagawana akhristu ndalama zomwe zimasonkhedwa ndi ma church ang’onoang’no under their synods zizichepa nde kuti kulemera kuvuta,Inenso ndiwa CCAP ndipo ndimati ndikasamuka kupita kumpoto,BT or Central ndimakapemphera pamene ndapeza kuti pali mpingo wa CCAP zinazo akukanganazo akuononga image ya chikhristu as whole,chocho zipembedzo zikanyoza Christianity tisamadabwe

  28. Church politics
    The most dangerous politics on earth.
    They gather together with hatred and they pretend they are one , they sing songs and preach salvation like they are holly
    But circular politics looks the best,
    They stand tall on public and tell the public that they hate this man, they hate Mr so so , they will deal with this Mr they will atrest Mrs so so

    May GOD forgive his church .

  29. Uchitsiru uwu this is utter competition for tithe from sons of the northern region. We know you are targeting northerners who reside in the central region. Someone claimed nkhoma synod should not benefit on your own sons and daughters who you raised. U Mulungu uli pati apa. Agalu inu

    • which synod is righteous in this world whose objective is not to make money? …..tell me?….nowadays faith is btwn u and your God….. a church is jus a replica…..every church nawa days is after mony than evengelising……take note

    • Thanks for coming out straight. I was just hiding. The truth is, all churches, not only ccap synods are after making money, church is now a source employment.

  30. Leave them do as they wish. Oyambitsayo amayang’ana utsogoleri disk lake liri pa chopereka koma Iwe olondora ndiye uli ndi chisankho.
    Olo atapita Ku south zilibe ntchito ngati zolinga zao ndi za chauta.
    Inu ndi one tingopanga chisankho cha kwa ambuye Yesu basi not these wrangles.

  31. I Wonder how u give each other boundaries on where to spread the word of God, mlekeni aliyense akalalikire kulikonse komwe anga the, there nothing like “my territory” , “ur territory” in spreading the word of God. as if ndi malo kuti mukukanganilana polima? kapena anthufe ndimunda wanutu?

  32. How can u say we are free and independent yet we are still praising the Gods of our Oppressors??

    Read your history my people David Livingstone came with the bible and a gun for a reason… think about it

  33. I don’t see any problem here….let them do ife we believe in God the father Almighty creator of heaven and earth not nkhoma or living kaya mumapitiliza kut chan,zinatitopetsa izi ife ndipo takulandilani kuno kwathu ku DZ land of peace

  34. Atsogoleri a Livingstonia synod alibe mphamvu ya utumiki wodzozedwa ndi mzimu woyera. Zidangogweramo kukhala atsogoleri opanda ndi UZIMU wa umunthu womwe. Akufuna Nkhoma synod iwapitire ku Court. Kwa iwo Court anapeza chida chowathandizira pa nkhani za makangano a Mpingo. Dyera ndi ndalama basi. Osangowatenga ATUMBUKA anuwo mukamange ma church kumpoto kwanuko kuti chopereka chomwe mukawona kuti mukusonkha kwambiri ndinu a kumpoto muzikalandilira kwanuko bwanji. Mix ndakwiya nanu.

  35. C.C.A.P, C.C.A.P, C.C.A.P, Kutchuka Kuposa Team Yampira, Or Else Should I Call It Synod Derby,,,? Timveko Zamipingo Ina Mmene Mwayambira Muja? Kuchita Kukaikitsa Kuti Pali Za uMulungu Apa..?

  36. Im adevoted member of CCAP Livingstonia Synod but now im thinking of withdrawing my membership with these un Godly issues being practising im very amused with,secondly our Synod behaves like apolitical party nor acongregation i dislike,why jumping,invading upto Dedza? if Nkhoma Synod is wrong let us forgive them than emulating the same mistake Nkhoma made in our territory in Kasungu and Nkhotakota by establishing their churches,the best judge is God not us,we are being misguided by greedy pastors to practice evilminded things,CCAP Livingstonia you will fall like Babylon,God pls forgive us,tayanja chuma not mazgu yinuaChiuta mutidanjilile,Amen

    • anzanu tikuyenda ndi yesu wosati dzina la mpingo kumwamba kulibe mpingo. Ndikuti mukapeze mpingo wochita chifuniro chamulungu? musakhumudwe nazo zotsala zimenezo

    • I think it will be good for you to leave quietly just as you joined without announcement. Don’t disturb others. The first mistake all synods made is to make boundaries. Mathews 28:18-24. When the Bible says who are you to criticize.

    • As a CCAP member, this issue is shameful. Everyone knows the boundaries of the synods koma kaya ndi dyera, i dont know. Nkhoma should have withdrawn from the North kalekale, coz anayambitsa okha this nonsense. I belong to Nkhoma synod but I cant support this nonsense. At this point it makes me wonder if this is about bringing people to Christ or about money. That aside, izi will keep on promoting tribalism/regionalism. For people who claim to serve God, they are focusing on the wrong things

    • Inu atumbuka anzanga dont take me as rebel but noble man,ine nkhuti tisabwezere zimene Nkhoma inapanga pomanga mipingo mu dera mwathu ie KK & KU Koma ife tizileke tilimbane ndikupempha Yehova kuti alamulire pankhani imeneyi,imagine ndili kuno ku Mangochi Monkey bay chaka chomwechino amanga mpingo a Livingstonia pafupi ndi mpingo waukulu waNkhoma so its like spiritual war ndine Mkulu wa mpingo koma ndinafunafuna kumene kuli CCAP Blantyre Synod ndikumene ndikumasonkhana nawo not ivi vamikangano,vakwanja waka ndalama not Mazgu ya Chiuta thats the reason most of our congregants are moving out coz mulibe cha uzimu mu mpingo wathu
      It saddens me ndikapita kulikulu la Synod yathu ku Mzuzu they deny talking Chichewa akuti ise ndise ba tumbuka too tribalistic infact we prioritise politics in our church service than words of God Noooo thats not the way to goo mwawabale bane

    • Ine ndine wa Nkhoma – Livingstonia, ma bungwe awiriwa pankhani iyi zawo ndi zimodzi ndipo ndi zofanana. As of today nkhoma Synod asegula ma church pa Jenda, Mzimba boma, Mzuzu City and at Karonga boma in the North. We members of both Synod let us welcome this as normal even though Cholakwika nachi okhawo achigawo cha kumwera ndi pakati Ndi amene akulowa mu Nkhoma kumpoto akuchoka mu Linia ndipo okhawo akumpoto ndiwo akulowa mu Linia ku Central akuchoka mu nkhoma. Both synods it doesn’t mean that they can’t see the solution its only that they can’t see the problem. Finally, along dispute of this nature means that both parties are wrong.

    • Ya Mafuleka according to synod boundaries part of ntcheu its bt synod but take note of this out of three synod ie Livingstonia,Nkhoma and Blantyre its blantyre which is better than the other Vampire synods

  37. Our ancient history clearly shows that there was never a CCAP Church Mission station in the Central Region of the then Nyasaland (now Malawi) but in the South & up North!

    How the Central Region came about to have its first CCAP Church mission station; where?when & how?- half the story has never been told & until the whole truth is known or sorted out, the Central Region shall continue to trade CCAP Synod barbs!

  38. If i were the judge and of course the sunday judge my judgement would have been in this way, Livingstonia get out from central region get settled in the north while Nkhoma get out from north and get setled in the central.

    • If they are different then why giving each other boundaries?Apatu lilipo ndi dyera kwa azitsogoleriwo akudziwiratu kuti ndalama zomwe ma church ang’onoang’ono under their synods amasonkha zizikhala zochepa akagawana akhristu,chifukwa enafe tili mu CCAP momwemo koma tikasamuka kupita Kumwera timakakhala under BT synod,like wise tikasamukira kumpoto or pakati,zoti iyi ndi Nkhoma,BT or Livingstonia synod ife sitilabada timangoti bola tapeza CCAP kumaloko

    • Leaders of the two CCAPs, give urself to God, do not apply ur knowledge on His Church, simply ask HIM what ‘n’ how to do it,otherwise we/U fall off the hands of God & land into satan’s hands. Let it be good C C A P without boundaries, just share what each other have in JESUS NAME as we Malawians have no travel limits within Malawi.Thank U. AMEN.
