The Diocese of Khartoum

Llewellyn Gwynn introduced Anglican faith in Omdurman in 1899. All Saints cathedral opened in Khartoum 1912 in memory of General Gordon.  Originally called Omdurman diocese, Khartoum diocese became one of the founding four dioceses in 1976 when the province of Sudan was created. Bishop Butrus Shokai became it’s first bishop and his name was given to the theological college established in the local area.

Archbishop Ezekiel Kondo is also the Bishop of Khartoum. 

Khartoum Diocese is geographically huge and the second largest after El Obeid diocese covering the historically Kush area of Sudan. Much of the northern part of the diocese is effectively desert as it sees almost no rain.
