Nateete Martyrs Church- Archdeacon headquartersMESSAGE FROM THE ARCHDEACON
Greetings to you all in the name of the living God
My name is Ven. Godfrey B.K Buwembo and because of God’s grace, am the Archdeacon of Nateete Archdeaconry. Since the inception of the Archdeaconry, it has been led by Five Archdeacons & me being the Sixth.
The Archdeaconry has been in existence for now 38 years. It’s made up of 11 parishes,106 sub Parishes (local congregations) where parishes like Namayumba, Kikandwa, Nsangi & Kavumba with the bigger part is remote and most of the Lay Readers do reside in their personal homes and as they serve they hardly get their stipend at the end of the day thus serving in the ministry by God’s grace.
We feel that we have to engage all Christians in those Parishes to actively participate in income development activities as well as twining and connecting them to Churches and Parishes which can support them in different aspects. We are also calling upon and encouraging the Parishes and Churches within the Archdeaconry to partner with the rural ones for advancement so as they become lively and supportive.
Having said that, I call upon all people of good heart and well-wishers to join and stand with us as we make efforts to develop the whole Archdeaconry. Otherwise we appreciate all our Christians in the entire Archdeaconry for the support to the ministry.
We request that all who visit our page on the Namirembe Diocesan website join us to advance the Archdeaconry from the current level to another.
He came that we may have life in its fullness (john 10:10)
