To bring people to Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit, and
as guided by Him – using all our people, establishing them, training
them and sending them out.
To develop new responses and strategies for reaching out to unreached
people in both rural and urban areas of our diocese.
To explore new methods of training for ministry, especially using
young people, helping all to find their god-given identity, calling
and talents, so that our communities may be healed of hopelessness,
poverty and death.
The life and health of the Diocese of Zululand springs from our
283 congregations, all of which have their ups and downs, failures
The faithfulness of the people is evident in their regular attendance
at worship, their giving for the work of God and their support
of various groups such as our Mothers Union, Donsumndeni, Iviyo
loFakazi bakaKristu, Sunday Schools and so on.
Challenges facing us include ensuring the growth of our church,
training and developing of young people, financial viability, the
continual formation of clergy and transformation.
We understand the need to take bold steps towards establishing
new ways of worshipping and the need to remain relevant for our
times. Unless this need is constantly placed before us, we run
the risk of becoming a fossilized church.
