Our relationship with Malawi extends back to the 1960s, when motorbikes were provided for priests to travel to worship centers in rural areas. Today, our partnership is based upon a 2010 companion diocese agreement with the Anglican Diocese of Southern Malawi. We have partnered with the Malawian church to increase its capacity for governance and sustainability. Their diocese now has a professional administrator, laity directed Development Board to oversee and administer projects, and a Development Officer to direct projects.
 
Bishop Alinafe Kalemba was consecrated the second bishop of Southern Malawi in October, 2013. The Bishop was born May 7, 1067 and is a Nyanja by tribe.

Following his theological training, Bishop Kalemba graduated from Chancellor College with a BA in theology and served at Ndirande, Likwenu and Balaka parishes.
