Immediately after the Canterbury conference (23-31 January) as reported long ago on this website, Bishop Mwita Akiri of the Anglican Diocese of Tarime, Tanzania, spent the rest of his time in the UK (1 February to 31 March) at Ridley Hall, Cambridge University as a post-doctoral scholar.

His scholarship was co-funded by Langham Partnership International (UK and Ireland) and Ridley Hall, an Anglican College at the University of Cambridge. Mwita used this opportunity to start writing a book on the indigenous agency in the growth of the Anglican Church in central Tanzania, 1876-1933. He made use of a specialist mission library at the Henry Martin Centre within the University.

Mwita was also able to travel to parts of the UK, mostly at weekends to meet with partners such as the Diocese of Wakefield, the Scottish Episcopal Church and Crosslinks – an Anglican mission society in the UK, as well as introducing his Diocese to potential partners. He also paid a visit to His Grace the Archbishop of Canterbury at Lambeth Palace, and the Secretary General of the Anglican Communion.
