Journeys of Faith

1/3. New Orthodox Christianity in Ethiopia is the oldest and purest form of faith found in Sub Saharan Africa.

Mark Stephen joins 200,000 worshippers in Addis Ababa for the annual burning of the Meskel bonfire, attends what feels like a medieval service in one of the world famous rock churches of Lalibela and speaks at length to Abba Paulos, the Patriach of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church about the challenges facing his faith in the 21st century.
