Church of Uganda has Thursday unveiled a ten year strategic master plan that will guide the Anglican church’s new direction and enable it to foster holist development.

The plan which was approved during the 23rd sitting of the Provincial Assembly recently focuses on the areas of mission, socioeconomic development, community engagement and institutional development.

This is the first time Church of Uganda has formulated a Provincial strategy in its 140 years of ministry in Uganda and the entire Great Lakes region. The master plan was launched by the Prime Minister Ruhakana Rugunda who represented President Museveni.

In its new strategy, the church seeks to strengthen its financial sustainability by undertaking productive investment while ensuring that its limited resources are effectively utilized.

In addition, it seeks to further develop the quality of education and health care to create social impact.

The Archbishop of the Church of Uganda His Grace Stanley Ntagali while speaking at the launch at Hotel Africana said that the new strategy is critical at a time when the church requires a new approach to solve emerging challenges.

“As the Bible says, without a vision, the people perish. Church of Uganda has for the first time come up with a masterplan to guide us in our operations in the next 10 years. Different Diocese has always had its own strategic plans but this one is for the entire Province,” the Archbishop said.

“Times have greatly changed and COU must position itself, change its strategy and approach to ministry in order to cope with with new challenges,” he added.

Over the 10 year period, the church will be looking to increase its membership by 25%, increasing church infrastructure (social, spiritual and economic) by 25%, generate its funds locally and have legal ownership and full control over its schools and health facilities.

On the financial front, Church of Uganda intends to grow its local income resource base from the current 20% to 91% by 2025, meet 100% of its administrative costs using locally mobilized funds and reduce donor dependency by 70% by 2025. Currently, the Provincial Secretariat is 80% reliant on foreign donations.

The President in his speech delivered by Ruhakana Ruguda hailed Church of Uganda for playing a critical role in civilization through its evangelization movement back in the 1930s the despite persecutions.

Museveni urged the church to work towards eliminating poverty, corruption and sectarian sentiments as well as imparting morals and civic responsibility among youths.

The entire plan between 2016 and 2025 is projected to cost Ush 3.3 billion and 39% of this budget is to be sourced from Kingdom Development Organization (KIDO) projects while 26% will be raised through Diocesan budgets.

Church of Uganda’s new partnerships will contribute 23% of the funding while the rest will come from projects, giving by Christians, education institutions, land use and enterprises.
