The Province of The Episcopal Church of South Sudan is one of 41 provinces within The Anglican Communion. It is led by Archbishop & Primate, Most Rev Justin Badi Arama.
The Church in Sudan was planted by CMS in 1899 and continued to grow as part of the Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East until it became a province in its own right in 1976 with just four Dioceses. Amidst persecutions and civil wars, the Church continued to grow and split into two provinces on 30th July 2017: The Province of the Episcopal Church of South Sudan and the Province of the Episcopal Church of Sudan.
