Tiergol is located on the border with South Sudan, and consequently can be unstable. Currently, the only way to reach Tiergol is by boat, although there is a road under construction. Most of the congregation, Church of the Messiah, are Nuer people, who live in the border regions between Sudan and Ethiopia.
The priest-in-charge is the Revd. Stephen Kuany.
Tiergol has two daughter churches: Lol-kwac and Babbe.
From time to time the town becomes de-stabilized, and flooded with refugees. Food runs out in the town and new supplies cannot be brought in because of the unstable security situation. The Anglican church is often the only group able to bring food. The pictures below show scenes from a day when some food was being distributed.
