ELCSA - Eastern Diocese

The Eastern Diocese of ELCSA covers the area of Swaziland and surrounding areas to the North, West and South West in South Africa. It is headed by Bishop Jeremiah Bheki Magagula. The Diocesan Office is located at KaSchiele Lutheran Mission, Mantsholo Road, Mbabane, SWAZILAND

An institution of the Eastern Diocese is the "Lutheran Development Service" (LDS, P.O. Box 388, Mbabane, SD, Tel: +268-40-42562, Fax: +268-40-43870, email), which has developed from the refugee work of the Lutheran World Federation (LWF). The LDS concentrates on "rural development" (from aid given in catastrophies to self-help schemes) and is largely financed from Project funds of the LWF.

Furthermore, the Eastern Diocese runs a "Lutheran Training Centre" which offers reasonably-priced accommodation to both individuals and groups (28 beds in double and single rooms). The conference room can accommodate up to 35 people when seating is required.
