Chemba is a parish about 1.5 hours drive south of Kondoa on the road to Dodoma, the capital of Tanzania. A brand new road, part of the Cape Town to Cairo road project, will pass through Chemba and its construction is well under way. Chemba has been made a government administrative area and so some development of the village will soon begin.
The Pastor is Rev Titus Ndalu and his wife is Mary.
Enquiries concerning baptism, marriage, funerals and Sunday Services should be addressed to the Pastor. Any correspondence should be addressed to Kanisa la Anglican

St Michael and All Angels, Wilmington, has been linked with Chemba since 2006 and has funded the building of a new church there to replace the older church that was too small and falling into disrepair. The new church was dedicated by the then Archbishop, Most Revd Donald Mtemela, in June 2007. Members of St Michael's have made a number of visits to Kondoa and Chemba and St Michael's has continued to support the pastor, Revd Titus Ndalu in his theological studies at Msalato College and as he leads the church in Chemba.
The rendering to the outside of the church was completed in December 2015 in partnership with St Michael and All Saints, Wilmington. The photo below right the newly rendered church, Bishop Given Gaula, Rev'd Lilian Gaula and Rev'd Tito Ndalu. It also shows the new Diocesan vehicle, just purchased.
The completed church was used in March 2016 for a Diocesan Leadership seminar, picture below:
Chemba is also the village where the new Kondoa Diocese Vocational Training centre is being planned. Here students, who have missed out on a secondary education, will be able to learn vocational skills. The project is being supported by Poverty and Hope and others in the Diocese of Rochester.
