The Bible declares, ‘Let the nations be glad and sing for joy’ (Psalm 67:4). Why should they? Because God reigns and He is intent on saving people from every tribe, tongue, and nation. We love this amazing promise at All Nations Church and are working to bring it about in several countries that have been laid on our hearts over a number of years.

This is our aid project started in 1984.

We have developed a significant relationship with Jonathan Kyando, the elders, leaders and members of this large Church, situated in Mbeya, a city in the south- west of Tanzania near the Malawi border. This is now the base for a network of more than 100 associated churches with a current objective of extending the network by planting a new Church at Dar-Es Salaam, which is the commercial centre of Tanzania. The city gives access to the coastal region of Tanzania. All Nations Church has sought to resource this in significant ways through partnership in mission, both spiritually and financially. Through visits we bring encouragement, training and teaching.
