ANNUAL REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES TO THE MEMBERS
In 2018 the UCA, in accordance with its Constitution (adopted in 2004), pursued its objects: To advance the Christian and other charitable work of the Church of Uganda and, supplementary to this, to advance the Christian and other charitable work of other churches and organisations within Uganda and to further the same purposes amongst Ugandans in the United Kingdom.
The UCA Annual Newsletter was published in the spring. The annual reunion/Day for Uganda, attended by about 65 people, including the Ugandan High Commissioner, took place at St John’s Church, Waterloo, on Saturday 7th April 2018. In the morning, news and information was shared by representatives of about 10 different organisations. In the afternoon there were talks from the BBC journalist Ruth Alexander – about South Sudanese refugees in Uganda – and the Ugandan journalist Benon Oluka – about the Current Political Situation in Uganda. The meeting also received reports from the Chairperson, Treasurer and Secretary. Elections for the Treasurer and Secretary were held.
The Committee has met by skype three times in the course of the year. Grants have supported a number of courses for in-service training and work with/for youth. The Uganda Networks website continues to attract interest but is not yet self-supporting. Following the guidelines of the Charity Commission, the Committee has ensured that our activities have been both ‘beneficial’ and that they have benefited a ‘sufficient section of the public’.
The Trustees and Officers of the Uganda Church Association, who are elected at the AGM, were at the end of the year:
Revd Amos Kasibante [Chairperson] Mr Charles Woodd [Treasurer & Membership Secretary]
Revd Dr Michael Hunter [Secretary]
Michael Hunter, Honorary Secretary – on behalf of the Trustees                       February 2019
