United Church of Zambia (UCZ) General Secretary Rev. Chipasha Musaba has spoken about the Church’s efforts to implement its investment policy to empower vulnerable communities and enable the Church to be self-sufficient. During a meeting with Global Ministries, he explained: “Luapula Presbytery has invested into water transport; North-Western Presbytery has invested in selling honey, Muchinga Presbytery has invested in block making ventures, apart from other activities being carried out in different Presbyteries.”

Every week, 5,000 blocks and pavers are produced and supplied by Muchinga Presbytery, providing employment for five local people. Bishop Rev. Festus Chulu, who leads the Presbytery, revealed their intention to expand the business and buy a utility vehicle to transport construction materials. The Presbytery also embarked on real estate projects in line with UCZ’s investment policy, with a semi-detached housing unit at the plastering stage. It plans to construct ten similar housing units costing 400,000 kwacha each to support the Church’s mission, funded by the Presbytery Investment Sunday collections.
