Whilst visiting Uganda in the 1970s, Revd Derek Blundell saw the great need for pastor training in Africa. Back in the UK, he set up the African Pastors’ Fund, placing theological literature in local African languages, bicycles and other tools in the hands of African pastors. Renamed African Pastors Fellowship, the charity was registered in 1981 and quickly built a committed supporter base, diversified its training and ministry portfolio, forged strong inter-denominational links and developed partnerships with church networks across East Africa.
With a reputation for working in pioneering ways, APF has always targeted support at church leaders living in marginalised and remote African communities. The African Pastors Fellowship (APF) is a UK charity working alongside church and community leaders in Africa: training, equipping and resourcing the local African church so communities might be transformed.
However, SOCDEN encourages the global faith and Interfaith society to continue their prayer’s and as it believes that social justice and religious tolerance, unity and reconciliation, peace and economic progress cannot work successfully and all alone without God’s blessing through the involvement of his people for a peaceful and a vibrant democratic society.
