The Provincial Assembly of Anglican Church in Uganda meets today (wednesday) at Nkoyoyo Hall at Uganda Christian University Mukono.


The meeting to be chaired by the Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, Rt. Rev. Stanley Ntagali is under the theme “Be Transformed by the Renewal of your Mind.”  The Speaker of Parliament,  Rebecca Kadaga is expected to preside over the opening.


The Provincial Assembly is the supreme governing body for the Church of Uganda and meets every after two years.
 
It is the legislative body consisting of Houses of Laity, Clergy, Bishops, with each diocese sending representatives to each House. 

According to Rev. Canon Dr. Alison L. Barfoot the acting communication officer of the church, the assembly will discuss many issues ranging from policies on child protection and disaster risk management.

Archbishop Ntagala is expected to give updates on Church House project and financial sustainability for the church.

“Issues of land management, especially related to church-founded schools and other institutions, the importance of developing Early Childhood Education opportunities in all communities among others,” the letter inviting guests read in part.
