Sierra Leone 1

April 2022 - trip to Sierra Leone

In early April 2022 Andrew Stobart, Matt Hartley and Kathryn Young visited the Methodist Church in Sierra Leone (MCSL) and the College of Theology and Management and Church Training Centre. They met with the Conference/Connexional Team, the College and mission partners Rachel and Sylvester Deigh.

The visit had been long awaited to follow up a development strategy along with All We Can as Cliff seeks to support MCSL with their training needs. It was a good visit, with time seeking to understand, hearing the requests and working through practicalities of support that Cliff College is able to deliver on.

Over the next three years Cliff hopes to co-design a contextually appropriate training curriculum for lay and ordained roles in MCSL, train initial cohorts of lay pastors, lay preachers and ministers, and train and equip the MCSL to create and deliver vocational training. Cliff's next visit to Sierra Leone to continue this partnership will be in autumn 2022.
