The Bishop of the Diocese of Wakefield, England, the Rt Rev Stephen Platten visited the Diocese of Tarime from 20-21 September 2011. The main purpose of the visit was to sign a partnership agreement, or the covenant, between the two dioceses in order to formalize the relationship with Wakefield that started in July 2010 after the subdivision of the old Diocese of Mara. Tarime inherited the relationship at both the diocesan level and parish to parish link. Bishop Stephen also planted a tree at Kemange parish church and spoke to some members of the congregation there. He also visited Mogabiri Farm Extension Centre some 10km to the east of Tarime. The Centre has benefited from a grant from an anonymous donor in Wakefield.  Bishop Stephen was accompanied by Peta Moffat, the Tanzania-Wakefield Link Officer who will be retiring in April 2012, her appointed successor in waiting, Rev Stephen Spencer, and Bishop's Chaplain, Rev Philip Welch.
