Mphunzi Mission Church, Malawi by Iain Pearson

Mphunzi Mission Church, Malawi

The small village of Mphunzi in Southern Malawi just about makes it on to the map as an access point and a place to hire guides to the Chongoni Rock Art Site: a UNESCO World Heritage listed collection of important Central African rock paintings. After visiting some of the sites, I needed a respite from the heat and humidity and was struck by the beauty and simplicity of the rock-hewn pews of the century old mission church.
