The direct result of the Church of Scotland involvement in Malawi was the inception of the CCAP. Much of what is now under the banner of SMP and MSP would not have happened without the foundation laid by the Church to Church relationships and the focus on faith, health, and education. We continue to nurture a mutually enriching relational partnership.

Today, mission outreach is a two way flow of listening, learning and sharing with each other. Members of the Church of Scotland are as much involved with ‘receiving’ as they are with ‘giving’ and mutual learning is very much emphasised in all our relationships. Today, as in the past, the same 3 aspects of faith, education and healthcare continue to guide our partnership but the elements within them are ever changing to address issues faced in the world today.
