Zambesi Mission


Most ZEC Churches have very active ladies' groups and these are linked together by the Chiyanjano movement. The ladies work is of vital importance in Churches all over Africa. In Malawi the Chiyanjano group is frequently the 'backbone' of the local Church with ladies active in evangelism, teaching youngsters and, of course, in hospitality.

These ladies travel widely to lead courses and seminars for ladies groups, pastors' wives, deaconesses, Sunday School teachers and the like. Sometimes they are involved with activities for the children as well.

Subjects covered include Bible knowledge, discipleship, evangelism, relationships, family
matters, home care, counselling and the ladies' role
in the Church.

Zambesi Mission supports this work in as many ways as possible -


  Bibles especially for new Christians

  Books for all teaching purposes

  Visual aids especially for children's work

  Pencils, paper and similar resources

  Help with travel costs

  People who will pray for them and their work!!

Some groups are large and some much smaller. They are involved in worship, bible study, evangelism, visitation and some in orphan day care schemes.
