Rugarama Presbyterian Church, Rwanda


Moira Presbyterian Church have entered into a partnership relationship with Rugarama Presbyterian Church. Over three years this partnership will be helping to provide support to the local church as they mobilise their resources through initiatives like Savings and Credit Groups who will be an essential part of enabling socio-economic transformation.

Rev Marie Louise Ingabire is the pastor at Rugarama Presbyterian Church.

Please pray that:

  • The work will bring holistic change to members of Rugarama Presbyterian Church
  • Rugarama Church will be salt and light within its community and that people will turn back to God because of what they are doing there.
