In association with Act for Peace, the aid agency of the National Council of Churches in Australia, SPC on 17 April hosted one of the leading church advocates for peace, development and addressing climate change in Africa, Revd Dr Andre Karamaga.
He is General Secretary of the All Africa Conference of Churches which comprises 173 churches and Christian organisations from 40 African countries, with 120 million adherents.
A Presbyterian theologian from Ruanda, Dr Karamaga highlighted the importance of the church as a peace-keeper in Africa and nurturing reconciliation among its peoples. He spoke out of his personal experience as a Rwandan leader who lost family members in the genocide. Please click HERE to listen to a podcast of this event.
