The current Diocese of Southern Malawi came into being in 2002 as a result of the rationalization and split of the then Diocese of Southern Malawi into two Dioceses, Upper Shire and Southern Malawi. The first Synod of the New Diocese was held on 4th May 2002 at Chilema.

The boundaries of the Diocese are the rivers Namadzi, Phalombe and Shire. The area covers the administrative districts of Blantyre, Chikwawa, Chiradzulu, Mulanje, Nsanje, Phalombe and Thyolo. The Diocesan Headquarters are in Limbe, a small town on the outskirts of Blantyre.

Bishop, Rt. Rev. Dr. James Tengatenga headed the Diocese up to 30th December, 2013. Currently the Diocese is being headed by Bishop Rt. Rev. Alinafe Kalemba: MA.
