Christ Church Lisburn funds new school in Uganda

Tuesday November 15th 2011

A team from Christ Church, Lisburn, will travel to Uganda in February to witness the completion of a school the parish has helped to build.

The parish’s project – to build a new primary school in Luwero Diocese in Uganda in association with Fields of Life – has engendering much enthusiasm and excitement among the parishioners.

The cost is £65,000, and the parish has been very busy raising funding by a variety of means. As a result of all efforts made, the target figure has been almost reached. The Rev John Pickering, who is part of the team, said: “Grateful thanks are due to everyone who has so generously contributed. “

The school will be completed in early 2012 and the team from Christ Church will be out from February 11–25 to help with the completion of the building and hold a Bible Club with the pupils. They will also be present for the official opening of the school.

A Commissioning Service for the team will be held in Christ Church on Sunday, February 5 at 11.30am and a Thanksgiving Service will be held on Sunday March 4 at 11.30am.
