By UK Correspondent

The Methodist Church Zimbabwe Fellowship (MCZF UK) is set to commemorate “21 years of steadfast dedication and service”, marking a “significant milestone” in its history in the United Kingdom (UK).

Launched in 2003 and registered as a charity in England and Wales, the fellowship has grown remarkably over the years and now boasts some 30 societies spread across the UK.

“Established by Zimbabwean Methodists residing in or visiting the United Kingdom, the MCZF UK has been a beacon of worship and cultural expression within the Methodist Church in Britain (MCB) with strong ties to the Methodist Church in Zimbabwe (MCZ),” said the Fellowship in a statement issued by the church this week.

“Reverend Dr Clement Matarirano, Acting Chaplain of MCZF UK, expressed gratitude for the collective journey of the Fellowship, attributing the anniversary to God’s faithfulness and the unwavering commitment of its members.”

The celebrations have been set for the seaside resort town of Blackpool from “Thursday, May 30th, to Sunday, June 2nd, 2024, under the resonant theme ‘God is faithful’ (Lamentations 3:23)”.

“The celebration’s agenda includes a vibrant celebratory march, devotions, teachings, services, presentations, worship, music, as well as outdoor activities for young people and children.”
