Church registration in Zimbabwe – Summary

The easiest and most affordable way to register a church in Zimbabwe is by registering as a trust or Private Voluntary Organisation (PVO). This is because with a trust or PVO the assets of the church will belong to everyone and not a single individual.

Register Your Company has helped hundreds of churches to successfully register their churches with the Deeds Ofice since we began trading.
