It is a common practice in Anglican churches to have Christian societies. Parishioners come together to form societies while others join any one of their choices.
The essence of the societies is to:
- Foster the spirit of brotherly love and Christian fellowship.
- Encourage members to be present at all church programmes.
- Develop programmes that will reveal our Lord Jesus Christ to unbelievers and convince them to be His followers.
- Initiate programmes and activities that will help fast track the progress and development of the church and the congregation.
- Serve as a forum to easily identify challenges facing members of the society.
