Outreach services in their homes, ministry to the sick, conducting weddings, baptism, and housewarming functions, development projects, supporting the construction of Bishops’ house and other developments in their home Churches like buying transport means for servants, formation of Women’s fellowship, fundraising for Ankole Western University, etc
The Bishop and his wife were accompanied the diocesan secretary, the Dean, diocesan Head of laity, head of clergy, treasurer, mothers’ union coordinator, planning and development officer/fathers union coordinator, and some Archdeacons.
During the service, the Bishop, who delivered the sermon preached Thanksgiving, its significance and relevance in the daily life of a Christian. He called upon the congregation to always remember to give thanks to God and fellow men for the great and simple things done in their lives.

About Kampala Chapter
The chapter was inaugurated in July 2017 as a body to cater for West Ankole Diocese Christians working and living in Kampala and metropolitan areas of Wakiso, Jinja, Mukono, etc. This would later help members get together spiritually, financially, physically, as a family.
They are coordinated by Rev. Can. Dr. John Kateeba, who works hand in hand with Lay Canon Apollo Buzaare, the Head of Laity.
To God be the Glory!
