Missions

Uganda

In 2011 we entered into a partnership with Impact Uganda, a ministry of International Teams. Ministries under the umbrella of Impact Uganda have had to change since then but its purpose remains the same - to transform the lives and communities of those who are most vulnerable: widows, refugees, and street kids.

Under the umbrella of Impact Uganda is Jinja Connection, an outreach centre for kids who currently live on the streets full-time or part-time in the town of Jinja. The drop-in centre is a safe space for kids to come and receive a meal, have a chance to shower and wash up, and receive schooling. Kids can also receive counselling and be reunited with their families through a process of reconciliation.

In mid-January 2017 Cat and Cody Greene, along with their four boys ,were commissioned by our sister-church St. Clair Church for a six month internship to Uganda to help out at Jinja Connection. Cody might even be able to help develop a vocational skills workshop for some of the older boys linked to Jinja Connection.
