Partnership History

  • Scottish missionaries decided to embark on missionary work in Malawi in honour of David Livingstone
  • The Free Church founded a mission in Livingstonia in 1875, and the Church of Scotland founded one in Blantyre in 1876
  • In 1924 the CCAP was established by loosely joining these two missions together with the Dutch mission in Nkhoma
  • In 1957-8 there were sixty-seven Scottish missionary families in Malawi, manning a large network of schools and hospitals
  • Today the CCAP has five Synods – three in Malawi and one each in Zambia and Zimbabwe
