From 2015 - 2018 Paul worked with the Diocese of Lake Rukwa in Tanzania, setting up a mobile bible school.
Formed in 2010, the diocese covers an area three times the size of Wales but has fewer than 30 parishes. One of the diocese's main challenges is a lack of trained leaders. Paul's mobile bible school is a course that provides foundational training for lay leaders of local churches. The 10-week course is taught in two-week blocks, in between which the students return to their ministry situations. Now Paul has returned to the UK, the mobile bible school is continuing under local leadership.
Paul returned to the UK at the end of December 2018 where he is taking up a post with the Diocese of Blackburn in early 2019.

The talk turned to money and suddenly faces became more serious. Smiles disappeared, worry lines were evident.
It has been the same wherever I’ve been, from the former refugee area in the north of the Diocese of Lake Rukwa, to the shores of Lake Tanganyika and the highlands in the troubled south. Over the last three weekends I have been travelling with a team, visiting a number of our churches, giving the news that there is no money. There’s never any money. We are, after all, in one of the poorest areas of one of the poorest countries in the world.
