Letter from the church council


“Kwaherini & Karibu”

ACC has been blessed with Neema Swai’s administrative and spiritual work for the past three years. She has been a valued administrator and friend to ALL at ACC. As she and her children move to join her husband, we shall miss them very much but wish them all the BEST… and say, “Travelling Mercies and karibuni tena❤”

Through an extensive interview process, we are happy to announce that Salome Swai was hired to begin the Administrator’s job on 1 October, 2019. She is a voting member who has been volunteering at ACC for many months. Salome holds a Bachelor’s Degree, has worked with international volunteers and sponsors at Genesis Orphanage and been part of a host family caring for volunteers from different countries through Projects Abroad Tanzania and Genesis Orphanage. Salome has also travelled throughout Africa and abroad which has offered her experience in community and international interactions. Salome loves to sing, read, pray and listen to gospel music.

Please introduce yourself and welcome Salome to the staff at ACC.

Kairos Course

Kairos is an excellent learning opportunity for all members of the body of Christ above the age of 16 and not just pastors and leaders in the church. The course which is taught in both English and Swahili, aims to equip participants with tools to share the gospel with the unreached in various parts of the world (including Tanzania!) and is spread out over five days.

The course fee is only $10 (TZS 25,000) for all five days inclusive of books and training materials. An additional fee of TZS 6,000 per day will cover food for the whole day (lunch and tea breaks) as the course runs from 8:30 a.m – 4:30 p.m each day.

For those who would like to attend but are not financially able, please see the duty elder for the day or Erwin Kinsey (0754480184 ekinsey@echonet.org) for more information on how we can help you share the love of Christ with others.

Worship Seminar, Saturday, November 16, 3 – 6 pm

The Worship Committee is hosting a worship seminar to help build up and equip the ACC community as we seek to honor God together. The afternoon will include a time to reflect on why and how we worship God well. We will also have practical break out sessions to talk about the nitty-gritty of planning for worship leading, preaching, music leading, and audio-visual leading.

Who should attend?
 Long-time worship leaders, who could share their experience with others
 New, potential worship leaders, musicians, preachers and technicians who want to learn and grow in worship leading skills
 Anyone who wants to get to know other ACC members more personally as you connect around a shared passion for worship
 Anyone who seeks to worship well: to glorify God and enjoy God forever.
Refreshments will be served. Sign up to attend the seminar in the church office.
