All Saints Cathedral, Kampala, is located on Nakasero hill and is the headquarters of the Diocese of Kampala for which the Archbishop of the Province of the Church of Uganda (Anglican) is also Diocesan Bishop.
For over 106 years, All Saints parish has grown to over 6,000 worshippers today and remains a Cosmopolitan Cathedral serving diverse people and cultures from the entire country and international communities.
The current sanctuary, which has been expanded three times in its life, now fills to capacity with an overflow of people occupying three large tents on the church compound.
Under the leadership of Archbishop Livingstone Nkoyooyo (RIP), the Cathedral acquired plots 2, 4 and 6 on Lugard road by 2004 in order to address the expansion and physical development needs.
The 7th Archbishop Henry Luke Orombi (2004-2012) led intensive consultations resulting in design of a suitable new Cathedral and broke the ground with phase one works.
His Grace, Archbishop Stanley Ntagali commissioned the continuation of the construction of the new Cathedral complex (Phase 2) in May 2017. Phase 2 now being executed includes the Super structure of the Sanctuary to achieve a covered and lockable building.
The scope involves walling and two galleries in structural reinforced concrete frame, roofing, windows and doors, a 12-floor bell and prayer tower, 5 Chapels, 5 Vestries, Immersion Baptistery and elevated Altar able to seat100 ministers and 70 persons in Altar response. The works were resumed in 2017.
Phase 3 will include Finishes, Furnishing, Fittings and Equipment. The design of the new Cathedral presents a unique symbol of the Christian faith and will offer tremendous opportunity for spiritual expeditions to the blessing of the city and nation at large. When finished, the new All Saints Cathedral will be such an iconic Sanctuary for generations, to the glory of our Almighty God.
