The Church of Uganda is a Jesus-loving, Bible-believing, Spirit-filled Anglican Church engaged in the mission of Jesus Christ in today’s world.
The Directorate of Mission and Outreach exists to equip the local church for effective mission and evangelism. Click here for some reflections from the Provincial Coordinator for Mission and Evangelism on developing a comprehensive, parish-based approach to evangelism and mission.
To carry out this comprehensive vision, the Directorate has seven units:
1. Youth and Student Ministries
2. Mother’s Union and Family Life Programme
4. Christian-Muslim Relations
5. Boys and Girls’ Brigade
6. Alpha Uganda
7. SOMA Uganda
Youth and Students unit reaches out to youth in educational institutions as well as school dropouts by organizing conference, missions, games and sports, and music and drama. We equip youth workers for evangelism and discipleship and prepare them for mission work.
