Rt Rev. Julian Henderson, alongside his wife Heather, will be travelling to Kenya and South Africa to teach and equip ministers on 'Authentic Christian Ministry'.
The Bishop will be making his second visit to the Church's link diocese in Free State, South Africa, before heading to the Kenyan Diocese of Voi, upon invitation by Bishop Liverson Mng'onda.
Speaking in advance of the trip, Bishop Julian outlined the teaching programme they plan to give: "Heather and I will be leading training sessions arising out of Paul's second letter to the Corinthians"
"Paul received much criticism of his leadership and in his defence, he outlines some of the key aspects of Christian Ministry that reveal it is genuine and authentic.
Explaining what prompted the trip Bishop Julian continued: "The Free State visit followed a conversation I had with the Bishop of the Free State Diocese, Rt Rev. Dintoe Letloenyane; and planning was arranged by the Dean of the Cathedral of Bloemfontein, The Very Rev. Lazarus Mohapi.
"The Kenyan part of the trip was arranged by Rev. Jonathan Milton-Thompson of St Andrew's, Livesey in Blackburn. Jonathan has been instrumental in arranging for clergy from Blackburn Diocese to share in this work for several years."
The Bishop has encouraged the Church to pray for blessing over their times of ministry and for good health and protection as they travel.
