Churches Break Away From Nkhoma CCAP Synod To Form Lilongwe CCAP Synod
This will be the second break up of the CCAP Nkhoma Synod, as previously Livingstonia Synod was formed from the same synod after some disagreements erupted.
Churches which are part of the break up to form Lilongwe CCAP Synod are from Dedza, Lilongwe, Salima, Ntcheu, Mchinji, Dowa, Ntchisi and Kasungu.
In an interview with Malawi Independent, the leaders of these churches said they are tired with some selfish pastors in the Synod who are tarnishing the image of the church and dragging it into politics.
“We want to go to church to listen to the words of God and not to be told who we are to vote for, we are a church and not a political grouping as such, we cannot continue being mislead by some people being used by politicians, this is why we are establishing Lilongwe synod whose interest is worshiping and not politics, “said of the the pastors who is leading the break away.
