The Church in Uganda: A Charge to the Missionaries of the Uganda Mission, 1913

Description

The Church in Uganda: A Charge to the Missionaries of the Uganda Mission, 1913 contains the text of a document by J.J. Willis, bishop of Uganda, addressed to the Anglican missionaries in Uganda on the eve of the 1913 meeting of the Uganda synod. The document has two parts: the first is an overview of the situation of the church in Uganda and of the work done in the previous year; the second part deals with problems encountered by the Uganda mission in the field. The report on the work of the church covers not only missionary and pastoral activities, but such topics as industrial training, education, and medical missions. In discussing the challenges confronting the church, Willis noted the increased drinking of alcohol and a resurgence of polygamy in a section of the population. The text is from a bound compilation of ten documents relating to the early history of the Anglican Church in Uganda in the library of Uganda Christian University at Mukono, near Kampala. The university was founded in 1997 by the Anglican Church of Uganda and incorporates Bishop Tucker Theological College, founded in 1913.
