Bunyoro Kitara, Uganda

St Mary's has been pleased to support Eric Twine and All Saints Holma over many years.

Eric Twine
We originally supported Eric when training to be a Vicar at Carlile College Nairobi in the 1990's.
He is now the Archdeacon of Kagadi in the south of the diocese of Bunyoro Kitara, Uganda
He is also a Canon Missioner for the diocese and a very effective evangelist in his local area.

In recent years, most recently in March 2015 Andrew and other members of St Mary's have gone out to Kagadi
(and Bulindi in the north of the Diocese) to run Rooted in Jesus discipleship training conferences.   These conferences have been training both vicars and lay leaders to run small discipleship groups for church members
and others interested in the Christian Faith.

All Saints Town Church
When Andrew first went out to see Eric Twine in 2003, he was then Vicar of the thriving All Saints Town Church Hoima.  Since then, St Mary's has continued to have links with that church under its current vicar, Revd Paddy Irumba.   In particular we have been happy to help with the building of a very large new church building which when completed should be able to seat about 7000 people !
