The Bamenda Appeal – Bracknell

Our relationship with Bamenda

The central African country, Cameroon split after World War I into a French-run zone and a smaller, British-controlled area. They were unified in 1961, but the English-speaking minority – Anglophones, about a fifth of the population, has complained of marginalization by the French majority for decades. The Anglophone regions make up the North West and South West regions of Cameroon.

Bamenda, also known as Abakwa and Mankon Town is a city in the Northwestern Cameroon and capital of the Northwest Region. Bamenda presently contains the highest number of English speaking Cameroonians……


Heavenly Father,
Bless the Bamendan priests
serving us in our Diocese.
Keep their families
and communities safe.
Pour out your Spirit
on the people of Cameroon
So peace and justice
may be restored to the region
And all peoples live in harmony
with each other.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen

“For I was hungry and you gave me food,
I was thirsty and you gave me drink,
I was a stranger and you made me welcome,
naked and you clothed me,
sick and you visited me,
in prison and you came to see me….
in so far as you did this to one of the least of my children,
you did it to me.”
Matthew 25:35-36, 40
