Notes
The Council of Anglican Provinces of Africa (CAPA) held a Mission and Evangelism Conference in Nairobi, Kenya, from 12-15 April 2004. It "heard a wide range of views from across Africa with delegates sharing their experiences of mission work. It reviewed how African evangelism had been successful and challenged itself to analyse its current efforts and weaknesses. At the conference's close a series of proposals were finalised in a summary document after a succession of increasingly focused group debates". "`Every Anglican an Evangelist' is a feasible objective but must commence with `Every Clergy member an evangelist', the summary stated, adding that a key to success would be a realignment in the role of theological colleges". The conference also talked about African specific problems. "IN particular the report highlighted tribalism. Many delegates expressed great concern that tribal considerations influenced the election of bishops and clergy, and said that any cultural practices that were inconsistent with God's word -- and therefore evangelism -- should be discarded." "Reports were also presented on the Church in various African provinces and stories shared showing the excellent work of laity and clergy in all aspects of Church work, especially efforts for peace and reconciliation in Burundi and Rwanda".

"The World Bank and a group of 150 senior Christian leaders from 20 African nations announced today that the Church and Bank plan to work more closely together to fight poverty and spur economic and social development in Africa. The agreement, unveiled at the end of a week-long poverty consultation [in March 2000] near the Kenyan capital chaired by the Archbishop of West Africa and facilitated by Dr. Agnes Abuom, President of the World Council of Churches, marks the first time the Bank has partnered on a regional level with the Church. Through the new partnership, the Bank and Church will focus on other development issues ranging from governance and corruption to gender equity and post-conflict reconstruction, and aim to `break the conspiracy of silence on AIDS'."

A description of the most month-long training program for new bishops which is organized by the Council of Anglican Provinces of Africa (CAPA) every two years. The most recent program was attended by 18 bishops at the Mbagala Spiritual Centre in Dar es Salaam in June 2004. Special tribute was paid to the Most Rev. Douglas Hambidge, retired Archbishop of the Ecclesiastical Province of British Columbia, the "gamaliel" of the training session who "took the bishops through inspiring Bible reflections and discussions on the role of a bishop as a leader, servant, president, teacher, pastor, administrator and symbol of unity". The bishops also heard other presentations on HIV/AIDS, communications and theology.

"CAPA [Council of Anglican Provinces in Africa] is a faith-based organization operating in 13 Anglican provinces in Africa and the diocese of Egypt. ... The Anglican Church of Canada supports the core work of CAPA with an annual grant of $10,000. From September 15 to 30 [2017], [Canon Grace] Kaiso, along with Elizabeth Wanjiku Gichovi, CAPA's communications and finance director, and Canon Isaac Kawuki-Mukasa, the Anglican Church of Canada's Africa relations co-ordinator, met with Anglican and ecumenical leaders in the dioceses of Edmonton, Niagara, Qu'Appelle, Rupert's Land, Montreal and Toronto. The meetings were 'for mutual learning and setting priorities for stronger mission together' according to CAPA. While in Ottawa, the delegation met with directors of diocese's program and ministries. The Rev. Laurette Glasgow, special advisor for government relations for the Anglican Church of Canada, accompanied CAPA officials to the roundtable with government officials at Global Affairs Canada (GAC) to talk about peace and security in Africa. The agenda for the roundtable with GAC officials included discussions about the civil war in South Sudan, where an estimated 300,000 people have been killed".

Notes
"Anglican leaders in Africa sponsored a church-led initiative to end the conflict in South Sudan. The Council of Anglican Provinces of Africa invited South Sudanese church leaders to Zambia in July [2017] to press for the guns to be silenced. The move comes after a group including leaders from CAPA and the ecumenical Council of Churches of South Sudan visited refugee camps in Northern Uganda to hear first-hand the stories of those who have fled the fighting. They were joined by church leaders in Uganda which has taken in 1.25 million South Sudanese refugees. Once camp -- Bidi Bidi -- has more than 226,000 refugees. CAPA chair, Archbishop Albert Chama, said many of the delegation had been left in tears by what they encountered there". [Text of entire article.]
