With 15,000 seat-capacity, is Pastor Imelda Namutebi’s new church the biggest in Uganda and in the region?  


The new home of Liberty Worship Centre International has cost over sh6b after about 10 years of construction.

Located in Lugala, Rubaga division a Kampala suburb, the facility is seated on a 17-acre piece of land.

“It is a 70 meters by 42,” said Eng. James Musoke, the head of the construction work at the site.

On the outside, it looks one immense - three-storied and endless in length. But the real beauty or what you can say is a state-of-the-art décor inside.

The auditorium is simply class: tiled through, with magnificent lights and a stage beaming a turn-key plug and play sound system. It has immense pillars curving a C in the middle, and a mezzanine to accommodate more worshippers.

Pastor Imelda Namutebi, the ministries founder, said the completion was a “testimony of God’s work in me.”

“I planned the structure myself, and then sought the architectures’ approval and after that we started. We didn’t have money, but people would donate. Someone would say ‘I am donating forty bags of cement. Another would say, ‘I am donating all the doors.’ So this you are seeing is a success story of everyone,” Namutebi said.

President Yoweri Museveni is expected to officially commission the church on Saturday.

Pastor Namutebi’s salvation journey started in 1986. That’s when she joined Kayanja’s Rubaga Miracle Centre, then in Kabusu, another Kampala suburb. She was a helper at the Kayanjas.

Between 1990 and 1993, she started moving door to door, practicing what she had been taught, preaching the word of God. Through fellowships, she partnered with Pastor Isaac Kiwewesi to start the Kansanga Miracle Centre.  In 1998, Namutebi parted ways with Kiwewesi and started Liberty Worship Centre in Mengo.
