CCAP - Harare Synod

The CCAP came to Zimbabwe in 1912 and Harare Synod was founded in 1965. The church consisted mainly of migrant workers from Malawi. This Chewa-speaking group belongs with four other CCAP Synods in Malawi and Zambia. It also has cordial, cooperative relations with the other Reformed Churches in Zimbabwe and abroad. Harare Synod now has 28 Congregations with over 79 Prayer Houses in its 4 Presbyteries in Zimbabwe i.e. Harare, Highfields, Gweru and Bulawayo Presbyteries. There are 22 Pastors  (from 15) and 48 Evangelists (from 22) who are serving close to 10,000 members and regular attendees. The churches meet every two years in a Synod. Harare Synod adopted the Heidelberg Catechism, Belgic Confession, and Canons of Dort as their doctrinal standards.

These are the previous congregations: Bindura, Bulawayo, Chegutu, Chinhoyi, Gweru, Harare, Highfields, Hwange, Karoi, Kuwadzana, Kwe Kwe, Kadoma,  Lobengula, Mabvuku, Marondera, Mufakose, Mutare, Norton, Rugare, Sizinda, Tafara and Zengeza.  New ones are Eiffel Flats, Chakari, Zvishavane, City Church, Kariba, Vic Falls, Glen Norah and Glen View

The number of Christians as of the last assessment is now close to 10,000 but not all of them have gone through the phases of confirmation of becoming a full member participating in full communion and other services for full time members of the Harare Synod. There is a notable increase in the locals i.e. Zimbabwean nationals now joining the church which has introduced a bi-lingual approach to sermons to accommodate non Chewa speaking Christians and youths who now form a considerable number of this rise in worship services.
