Why we need Ugandan Christians (and why they might need us)

Apr 3, 2014 by

By Simon Vibert As part of the Wycliffe Hall Mission Week I took a small group of Students to Uganda to work with our sister college Bishop Barham Christian University, Kabale. This is located in the South West corner of Uganda, in the District of Kigezi, just an hour from the border with Rwanda. Kabale is about 7,000 feet above sea level and set in lush rolling hills. The air is a little “thin” and temperatures are less oppressive than in the capital Kampala where we began our...

Solidarity with the Anglican Church in Uganda and Nigeria

Mar 20, 2014 by

By Chris Sugden, Evangelicals Now Anglican churches in Nigeria and Uganda have through history stood for biblical truth and principle and been at the forefront of action for justice, peace and equality.

Archbishop Stanley Ntagali Comments on Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Bill, the Church of England’s “Pi...

Jan 30, 2014 by

The Church of Uganda is encouraged by the work of Uganda’s Parliament in amending the Anti-Homosexuality Bill to remove the death penalty, to reduce sentencing guidelines through a principle of proportionality, and to remove the clause on reporting homosexual behaviour, as we had recommended in our 2010 position statement on the Bill.

Christmas Message from the Archbishop of Uganda

Dec 23, 2013 by
