Chester Congo Link
Chester Diocese is linked to the Anglican Dioceses of Aru and Boga in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Aim of the ABC link
Our mission through this link is to be one church in different places, developing a world- wide understanding of the kingdom of God by:
- finding ways of doing things together and by learning from one another through the exchange of information and visits.
- sharing problems, joy’s and opportunities and offering mutual support
- encourage positive and active participation by parish links.
News: A chance to visit Aru yourself...next year!

The welcome you receive, the music you hear, the faith of the people and experiencing at first-hand African life and culture will change you for ever.
