The ACP Team extends gratitude and blessings for all the contributions, prayers and desire to raise the sanctuary of God. Phase 2 for our new Cathedral is truly unfolding. Keep praying and giving to the work of God for the glory of His name.
There are five major activities for Phase 2 of the Cathedral building Project namely: Prayer, Communication to parishioners and other stakeholders, raising money, engagement of the Supervising Consultant and later procurement of the Contractor to execute the site Works and finally Supervision of the Works.
Together with the Consultant, the journey to commence actual site works will proceed as follows:
Design reviews to check structural integrity and possible design improvements (November 2016); preparation of construction documents and bidding documents (December 2016); Bids submission by Contractors and bid evaluation (January 2017); Negotiations and Selection of Contractor (February 2017); and Commencement of works at site (March 2017).
This phase 2 which covers the Main Auditorium Walling frame, Roofing, fenestration (windows and doors) requires that once we start, we cannot stop until it is finished because it is designed as interconnected structure. As we continue to gather our contributions, we will be much better prepared to meet our obligations with minimum financing risks, by the time we start site works.
We continue to invite you to make your financial contribution in various ways. Gideons are individuals or groups of people who give Ugx 3 million or USD 1,000 or more. Another category is to have 100 individuals or families or entities or government departments contributing 10 million or more. So far we have received over 32 people in this category and different fellowships like Mothers’ Union, Fathers’ Union and others are gathering their money. Cards to facilitate group savings are now available with the ACP Secretariat. We are continuing to receive all contributions in whatever amounts. Glory to God for the prayers, enthusiasm and commitment in giving money for the Cathedral building. Indeed, we are building, Phase 2 is becoming a reality.
