Sunday 3rd August 2014 will always remain an historical day for the people of Kibutika Church of Uganda in Kabowa Parish. It is the day, the Archdeacon of Mengo Ven. John Gitta Kavuma officially opened this Church as the newest in the Archdeaconry.
1. HISTORICAL BACK GROUND OF THE CHURCH
An evangelistic team from St. John’s Church, Ndejje (South of Kampala, Uganda, East Africa) organized an evangelistic outreach in this area and discovered that the area was remote and far away from the existing church. One Christian couple Mr. and Mrs. Kityo offered their compound temporarily to begin a church. On Sunday 8th September 2013, the first service was conducted under a tree shade and was attended by 9 people. The following Sunday a small tent was hired together with chairs. Later as more people joined, funds were raised to buy a 100 seater tent.
More people have received Christ and more have joined the church. We now have about eighty
(80) Christians on the church list with about sixty (60) in children’s church.
The few available Christians have worked had, bought a tent, church chairs and are now raising money to buy land for construction of a church.
c. A vibrant church choir has been formed.
We thank all Christians who have given sacrificially towards this church ministry. We also thank Rev. Hebert Zziwa, the parish priest, Mr. Mayombwe, the lay leader and the Christians of St. John Church. We thank Mr. and Mrs. Kityo for offering their home where Christians fellowship. we also thank the management and staff of Abesther primary school for offering a class which is used as children church every Sunday.
