The Diocese of Masvingo is the fifth and newest Anglican Diocese in Zimbabwe, established in 2001. It is part of the Anglican Province of the Church of Central Africa and a member of the worldwide Anglican Communion. It is about 8,500 miles from the Diocese of Fond du Lac.
The Right Reverend Godfrey Tawonezvi is the first Anglican Bishop of Masvingo. Starting from almost nothing the Diocese has developed during its short life and, despite many challenges, financial, geographical and political, is now in good heart. New churches are being built, congregations are growing, able young clergy are being ordained and the Diocese is also serving the people of Zimbabwe through its education and development work.
