Chapter Summary

This chapter analyses the use of Eglise Anglicane du Congo (EAC) centenary pamphlet of 1996 by migrants to construct a new sense of ?home? as a place where meaning is grounded. It then presents an overview of the EAC migratory identity shifts indicating the importance of the conclusions for studies in Sub-Saharan Christian history. The 1996 pamphlet narrates the story of Apolo in such a way as to imbue EAC history with unitary aim and a narrative umoja unique to the EAC and yet linking it to Uganda and beyond. Migratory growth engendered a hybrid and mobile religious identity interconnected with local, regional, national and transnational influences, and reinterpreted to respond to present needs in a way that encouraged unity within the EAC and enabled a greater common expression of Christianity.

Keywords: 1996 pamphlet; Eglise Anglicane du Congo (EAC); migratory identity; religious identity; Sub-Saharan Christian history; Uganda; umoja
