Inter-Diocesan West Africa Link (IDWAL)

Our diocese has had strong links with Anglican churches, schools and communities in Ghana as part of the Inter-Diocesan West Africa Link (IDWAL) for 40 years. IDWAL was formed in 1978 as the organisation to sustain those links between churchgoers in Chichester, Guildford and Portsmouth dioceses with Anglican Christians in West Africa. Since 1998, our links have been primarily with Ghana. 

Churchgoers from our diocese regularly visit Ghana, and we welcome people from Ghana here. We also collaborate on projects, pray for each other and learn valuable insights from each other, with individuals keeping in touch with their friends in many different ways. The idea is to mutually support each other in Christian faith and mission. Around 40 parishes and schools have active links.
