For a history of the Anglican Church visit the (achived) website:

Rev. Karl Wilhelm Isenberg (1806-64) trained in Basle (Switzerland) and was sent to Ethiopia by the London-based Church Mission Society.

Rev. Isenberg translated the Anglican “Common Book of Prayer” and the Heidelberg Catechism into Amharic. The Amharic Common Book of Prayer was published in in 1842 (-> probably the first printed Amharic Protestant liturgy).

There are several Anglican congregations and a theological seminary in Gambella. Besides Amharic, the Anglican Common Worship Eucharist has been translated into Annuak, Dinka, Ma’aban, Nuer, Opo and Somali. (Visit website with overview of translations)
