The Minchinhampton Masasi Group

We are an informal group of people who have fallen under the spell of Tanzania and its wonderful hospitable people, particularly our brothers and sisters in the Anglican Diocese of Masasi in the South East of the country. We meet to exchange news and to plan ways of supporting the work of the Bishop and his team. Minchinhampton PCC has given grants for many projects and parishioners are generous in supporting our fundraising efforts. We welcome others who would like to join us.
