MCT-SWP, Moravian Church in Tanzania, Southwest Province

The Moravian Church in Tanzania was founded in 1891 in East Africa. There, the church has about 800,000 members. The church is divided into provinces. Mission 21 is closely connected to two of them. Both the South and Southwest Provinces of the Moravian Church in Tanzania are highly regarded for their educational and social work. The provinces of the Moravian Church in Tanzania, Zambia and Malawi belong to the Evangelical Brethren Unity, an ecumenically open church divided into 27 provinces worldwide. Its roots lie in the Reformation in Bohemia and Moravia of the 15th century. Herrnhuters exist today in more than 50 countries. The younger Unity Province of Southwest Tanzania, founded in 1976, now has 198 main congregations with 269,800 Christians in the state administrative districts of Mbeya, Chunya and Iringa. The former mission territory of the Southwest Province in northern Tanzania in the Arusha region became independent in 2012.
