The Provincial Master Strategic Plan 2016-2025 under focus area 1 of Mission, Strategic Objective 1: Increasing membership by at least 25% over the period, requires Dioceses to establish functional children churches (CC) at all congregations under strategy 1.1.
Christians of St. Stephens Church of Uganda Kireka in Luzira Archdeaconry in an effort to realize the strategic objective above, constructed a modern Children’s Church which also accommodates a guest wing. The Rt Rev. Wilberforce Kityo Luwalira officially opened the facility on 12th November 2017 and in his remarks, the Bishop thanked the Clergy, Lay readers and the Christians for establishing this Church. He emphasized the need of nurturing and training our children according to the teachings and the values of the Anglican Faith since they are the future leaders and Christians to manage God’s Church. This can only be possible, if the children have their own Church with facilities that enable them to effectively learn and understand Christ.
When addressing the children, the Bishop urged them to protect this Church and use it well in welcoming and understanding Christ in their lives. He thanked the Sunday school teachers for the wonderful ministry.
