The Mlalo Lutheran Parish
North Eastern Diocese – Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania

What is a Companion Parish Relationship?

A companion parish relationship is an opportunity to grow in relationship with sisters and brothers in Christ throughout the church. This companion relationship provides opportunities for prayer, learning and sharing in our respective settings. Together we seek to grow in Christian love and gain a deeper understanding of each other as fellow members of the body of Christ.

The Mlalo Parish

The Mlalo Parish is the headquarters of the Northern Deanery in the North – Eastern Diocese (NED) of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania (ELCT). The Mlalo parish spans the government administrative Mlalo Ward in Lushoto District which is among the eight districts of Tanga Region in Tanzania. A parish is a cluster of congregations working together within a specific geographic region.

Parish History

The history of Mlalo Parish goes back to the 6th of April 1891 when the Germany Missionaries Johannesn and Wohlrab came to Mlalo from Tanga and met the chief of Wasambaa (Thetribe which Lives here) Shekinyasi who showed them this area. On the 7th of April 1891 they slept under the big tree which is still existing known as “Muula,” where later on they built a Church and a Mission station in July 1891.

The Mlalo Parish has the main or central church called “Hohen” which actually means Peaceful Mountain and five sub parishes which are Lwandai, Sinai, Dule, Kungutana na Baghai.

The parish started with only five people who agreed to be baptized after having true faith that Christ is the Lord. But now the number of Christians in Mlalo parish had increased. Right now Mlalo Parish comprises of 1158 elder people including 516 men and 642 women while the number of children is 365 boys and 356 girls which gives the total number of children 721. So the total number of the people of Mlalo Parish is 1879.
