St Mark's Mission Trip
To Uganda 2024

St Mark's Church In Uganda

One essential for this mission is prayer.

The team arrived home safely on the 14th April after a very emotional, but productive two weeks with the charity International Needs, the clergy, teachers, families, children and churches in the district of Buikwe.

The team will be giving an update in church with worship, food and fellowship in Ugandan style

First of all, the team would like to say a special thank you for the generosity and support St. Mark’s has given us.

Your donations have allowed us to purchase over 120 Bibles and support the very important work of the disability inclusion project. Other items that you have donated of spectacles, clothes, and other essential items will make such a difference to so many children and their families.
