Dear Friends I hope you had a Happy Easter. Now we look forward to the end of the month when we will celebrate the feast of our Lord’s Ascension.

Dear Friends, I write this having returned in the last few days from Ascension’s visit to Naminage.  A personal highlight was joining other Christians to worship in many diverse settings.  We joined the community at St Andrews, Naminage for an All Age service, I also preached in Busoga Diocese Cathedral Church, Bugembe.  This was the cathedral founded by the late […]
