With pleasure, we warmly welcome you to this exciting new venture of our revamped and renewed website of the Anglican Church of Rwanda, Butare Diocese. As a Diocese, we are located in Southern Rwanda. The Diocese was officially born on the 19th October 1975. The current diocesan Bishop is Rt. Rev. Nathan Kamusiime Gasatura. The Diocesan greater portion is rural, whereas, some significant portion is peri-urban.
The population straddling our diocese in terms of membership is around 100,000 people, with living conditions that are improving every passing day, due to the general national big picture of the sound Macro-economic and social Policies, that have been initiated in place, the Public government sector, while the Private as well as the Civil society sectors have clinched such robust and healthy Partnerships with government, over the last one and half decades. Hence, the tangible, visible, palpable as well as measurable indicators of the trickle-down benefits being experienced by the general population starting down to the house-hold level. Notwithstanding there are still marks and consequences of the genocide committed against Tutsi in 1994, visible. However, the overall strategic outlook of the Nation in general, and the Diocese in particular, is nothing less than one full of hope and aspiration, healing, harmony and growth in a positive sense and in diverse dimensions.
In Partnership with the Government, the Diocese has been undertaking several efforts, to handle many survival issues ranging from spiritual and Psycho-social support, to supporting shelter, and the rest of the plans within the Pipe-line, that our people and Church members are facing. Butare Diocese, first launched its Pilot-web-site in May 2016.However, it has now become necessary to renew, review, revamp and enrich it, as there was need for integrating more emerging, strategic as well as important information.
I would like to warmly welcome our Church members, partners, donors, fellow Christians across our Anglican province, to check it out after its renewal, very soon, so as to make their input in terms of ideas, to find out priority prayer items, even to publicize the Diocese, provide us with relevant and constructive feedback, and so forth.
More detailed information about our Diocese, its Vision, Mission, Core Values, and strategic interventions and Programs, is available on this website. Thanks a lot for having visited us and May God so richly bless you. You are all once again most welcome!!!

Bishop Gasatura K. Nathan
