Malawi Council of Churches (MCC) was established in 1942 with the main objective of human transformation following the image of Jesus Christ, promoting holistic development, and fostering unity, peace, justice and love amongst the human race. In this regard, MCC provides a united witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ to the nation and offers a united approach towards the government, and serves as the voice of the church (voiceless) on national and international issues – both spiritual and contemporary.
Malawi Council of Churches has 25 Christian Member Churches across the country and 15 para-Church organisations/affiliates. The affiliates are three fold, those that are directly created by the Council as an entity, those that are created by the Council in partnership with other religious mother bodies such as the Ecumenical Conference of Malawi (ECM), and those that are affiliates through application.
The Malawi Council of Churches (MCC) has since 2010 engaged its member churches leadership in spearheading change in the way Christians should plan their families. Interventions are planned for T/A Dwambazi in Nkhotakota District.
