KAMPALA - The Kampala Archdiocese has equipped 52 church leaders from the Metropolitan area with leadership skills to enable them understand the dynamics of the Church.

The three-day programme held at Foyer De Charite Namugongo in Wakiso district is aimed at empowering the leaders with knowledge of the church operations as well as the language used therein.

Opening the workshop recently, Archbishop of Kampala, Dr Cyprian Kizito Lwanga, said church leaders, who are also key in evangelisation, ought to be equipped with knowledge to take the Church forward.

He urged the new leaders to pray to God for patience so that they can learn to control their temper, adding that their role is to guide the people of God to heaven and they, therefore need to be cool-headed.

Lwanga added: “Be mission-serving leaders, who are focused on a purpose larger than us. Focus on influencing others in the ways of the Lord, for that is where our mission lies.”

The new head of laity at the Kampala Archdiocese, Ivan Kalanzi, on behalf of the trainees, assured the Archbishop that the training would yield fruit. 

“We are ready for a successful year ahead of us. It has been a life-changing experience,” Kalanzi said.

The trainees appreciated the programme, describing it as an eye-opener and a platform where they shared ideas and laid strategies for the new year.
