OUR CORE VALUES
PRINCIPLES & BEHAVIORS
Holiness & Integrity
Living sanctified lives, walking uprightly we keep our consciences clear before God and man (Acts 24:16, Ps 24:25, 1 Chron.31:18, 1 Cor.9:26-27)
We demonstrate resolve and willingness to give ourselves and our resources in advancing the Kingdom of God (Rev.2:2-3)
We touch lives through Christ by delivering the oppressed, healing the sick, releasing the captives, binding up the broken hearted and comforting those who mourn. (Isaiah 61:1-3)
Whatever we do, we do it with all our might. Our resolve is to accomplish distinguished and exceptional performance and being efficient in achieving results in the ministry of Christ, (2 Cor. 8:7, Eccl.9:10, Matt.25:23, Phil.4:8 and Phil 1:9-10).
All we do as Church revolves around the person of Jesus Christ who is God the Son; and so we put Christ before everything, (1Cor.2:1-2); (1 Cor.1:23-24); (Col.1:15-17).
Our purpose in the world as assigned by God who gives us strength is to take care of His creation (Philippians 4:13). We identify God as the owner and ourselves as the managers of His creation. We are Gods fellow workers and Gods field (1 Cor. 3-9).
We obey God’s greatest commandment through our total devotion to Him and our concern for one another. (John 13:34, 1 Cor.13:4-7.)
We Value People
We no longer regard anyone from a worldly perspective (2 Cor.5:16). We regard and treat each person that comes to our Church irrespective of their status as important; appreciate their unique gifts and talents and facilitate each person to contribute to the building of the body of Christ. (Luke 12:6-7).
All Saints’ Cathedral Kampala (ASCK) is a constituent parish of the Diocese of Kampala. The Diocese of Kampala is one of the thirty-one dioceses of the Province of the Church of Uganda (commonly referred to as Church of Uganda.) Church of Uganda is a member of the worldwide Anglican Communion.
ASCK is located on Plot 1/3 Lugard Road, Nakasero Hill in the heart of Kampala City. The Cathedral was founded in 1912 as a chaplaincy to a European colonial hospital in the neighbourhood. As a chaplaincy, it catered for a small congregation of colonial administrators, hospital staff, and patients. At independence in 1962, it changed status from a Chaplaincy to a Parish Church. The composition of the congregation changed from being exclusively European to include people of African and Asian origin. In 1972, the church was elevated to a Pro-Cathedral and later to a Cathedral for the Archbishop of the Church of Uganda. The Cathedral is currently the seat of the Bishop of Kampala who is also the Archbishop of the Church of Uganda.
At each of above transition stages, the house of worship was being extended to accommodate increasing numbers of congregants, the latest being in 1987.
In the 1990s, the Cathedral experienced a considerable growth in the size of its Sunday congregations. By the last quarter of 1998, all the members of the 9:15 a.m. service could no longer be seated in the sanctuary. Currently the overflow is accommodated in three tents every Sunday service. Between 1999 and 2002, the Cathedral acquired two (2) adjacent real estate properties located on Plots 2 and 6 Lugard Road.
