Uganda – Deanery Link

In 1969 the Diocese of Bristol established a link with the Anglican Church of Uganda. St Michael’s Church is part of Kingswood and South Gloucestershire Deanery which is linked to three Dioceses – Ruwenzori, Ankole and West Ankole – in the west and south west of Uganda.

The Link is a partnership between the Churches, sharing Christian friendship through mutual prayer, support and understanding of one another. It is not a fund raising organisation – the emphasis is very much on friendship rather than charity.

In practical terms, relationships are developed through visits. Contributions from churches, including St Michael’s, are used to help fund these visits and in our Deanery we also provide financial support to students for theological training.

This has been a very welcome initiative as the Church of Uganda struggles to support candidates and future leaders in their training.

In addition, individuals from Bristol churches visiting Uganda have been inspired to get involved in personal support for projects and initiatives in Uganda – such as running a Christian training and empowerment course for clergy wives, helping in the planning and development of a medical centre and supporting Christian conferences for young people.
