The Zaire Church Association was formed in 1976 by Philip Ridsdale (q.v.). In 1997 it changed its name to the Congo Church Association. This is a virtually complete series of the newsletters from their commencement by Philip Ridsdale, with some predecessors produced by him for the Diocese of Boga. It is a likely harbinger of future deposit of substantial archive of the Association. The personal papers of Canon William Norman, General Commissary of the Province of Zaire 1992-2010, ex officio on the committee and a trustee of the Association (effectively its principal executive officer) were formerly catalogued as archives of the Association but have now been separated.
