There are currently four rural partnership churches within REACH Malawi in the Thyolo area. The churches are: Samuti Community Church; Mazinga Church; Chafuta Church, and Nansadi Church. This all began as a rural mission work in 1995, as the Samuti Church was planted under the auspices of REACH South Africa. The work has been supported by Emmanuel in Belville (Cape Town), St. Peters Fish Hoek and Christ Church Blairgowrie (Johannesburg).
Samuti Day Care
A Day Care Centre has been operational for a few years now. Samuti Community Church Day Care helps to provide for the spiritual, educational and physical needs of the community around Samuti Church. Over thirty children are registered and come during the day, then go back into the community after receiving a cup of tea and a meal.
