We appreciate the generous donation from Jonathan and Joan from Australia who supported us in starting the scheme.
We are committed to building an open-opportunity Diocese for all in the church of Uganda (Province) which also a cornerstone of our constitution.
Our vision is “To see a vibrant spirit driven Diocese.”
We pledge to achieve this by continuing to redress the Diocese’s activities through opening opportunity and ensuring Christians are able to use these opportunities to improve their lives spiritually, socially as well as economically. We put the systems, structures and budgets in place that are needed to take us closer to this goal. We need to make progress when it comes to creating the conditions for higher economic growth and job creation in the Diocese and improving service delivery to Christians.
We know that we still have a lot of work to do, we also recognize that we need to do a lot more with limited resources, be more innovative, work better and implement our policies and plans more efficiently. (2 Peter 3:18). The Diocese’s Strategic Plan, sets our ten strategic goals that aim to achieve objectives so that we can create an enabling environment for higher economic growth, improve education and health outcomes and build better living environment for our Christians and the entire community at large.
Finally, we believe that progress will only be possible if everyone works together. “But now take courage all you people still left in the land, says the Lord. Take courage and work for I am with you.” (Haggai 2:4). We need committed government, active citizens and responsible stakeholders who accept their responsibilities and committed leadership (Church) in all spheres of life to make our Vision a reality.
We would love your prayersand financial support in spearheading God’s work, especially our current
