At the beginning of July, 2014, Alpha Uganda hosted its second ever East Africa Week Conference (EAW) at Ggaba National Seminary in Kampala. The week was inclusive of four parts - a retreat for our National Alpha Office staff, followed by a two-day Leadership Conference, and finally a Master Trainers programme running simultaneously alongside the Marriage Course 101 training.
There were 130 delegates represented at the event from 8 different countries across East Africa including honoured guest Rt. Rev. Sandy Millar (Bishop of Uganda and Honorary Assistant Bishop in the Diocese of London), the Vicar General of Kampala Archdiocese Mons. Charles Kasibante, Bishop Tim Wambunya from Kenya, and Senior Presidential Advisor Cris Rwakasiisi (Uganda).
Worship, seminars, training courses, and information sessions all added to the success of this event. One Ugandan delegate commented: ‘If I had one word to describe how I feel after participating in EAW, it would be equipped.’
There is great anticipation and excitement over the expected outcomes of this event. EAW has been so important for the effectiveness, expansion, and passion with which our offices and partners move forward with the tools they have been given to assist in the re-evangelisation of the nations and the transformation of society.
