- Plot 12 William Street (Gadith House) Kampala, Uganda
Calvary Chapel Kampala (CCK) began in May 2002 as a small fellowship of believers meeting together in a storefront on Nkrumah Road. The church congregation grew immediately as people were drawn to the simple teaching of the Word of God.
In less than one year the fellowship outgrew the Nkrumah Road location, and now meets in a larger building in the centre of Kampala. The Word of God taught by Calvary Chapel pastors is changing lives over the airwaves.
Mission and church planting are also a big part of the fellowship. CCK missionaries are being sent out to start churches and continue the work of God in East Africa. The Future is promising for Calvary Chapel Kampala as the Lord continues to do His mighty work.
Calvary Chapel Kampala is part of the Calvary Chapel movement started by Pastor Chuck Smith of CC Costa Mesa. CC Costa Mesa is a non-denominational evangelical Christian church that began with twenty-five people in Costa Mesa, California in 1965 by Pastor Chuck Smith. Pastor Chuck Smith was a key minister to the youth in what is called the Jesus movement of the 1960s. As he reached out to the youth of the counter-culture – the hippies, drug users, and those rebelling against tradition – many accepted the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
God gave the increase and thousands gave their lives to Christ. Today, Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa is listed among the world’s twenty largest churches with more than thirty-five thousand calling it their home church. From this first Calvary Chapel many men were raised up who went out to start new Calvary Chapel churches. These in turn also raised up new pastors and church starters so that today there are over one thousand five hundred Calvary Chapels around the world.
