Ambiriombachi Anglican Church

Arua, Uganda

Packed shoulder to shoulder in a small, mud-walled church, worshippers at the Ambiriombachi Anglican Church in Arua shouted prayers for peace and reconciliation in South Sudan.

The service was conducted in Dinka language for a predominantly female congregation, who swayed back and forth to the repetitive rhythm of hand-beaten drums and traditional South Sudanese song and prayer.
