Some churches of the CCAP in the Central region have broken away from Nkhoma synod. And plans are underway to form what they are calling 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.


  • Members of Nkhoma Synod should not wash their dirty linen in Public.Members who think the Church is just there to do Bible study should also restudy their Bible and understand what mission entails in the 21st century amidst high levels of poverty and corruption.

    Mark my word, content in this write-up is wishful thinking and total fabrication by the authors and their cronies.

    As much as the church membership is made up of those who belong to different political parties and as community, we share different views on contents of the Pastoral letter and as much as every person is entitled to their opinion, the notion that there is rebellion by other churches is a total misconception and absolute fabrication.

    As a church, we believe in resolving our issues through prayer. Therefore, stay away because staying in the path of prayer and supplication has consequences that can affect you for the rest of your life!! DONT FABRICATE STORIES ABOUT OUR CHURCH PLEASE!!
