Uganda Partnership Team (UPT)
The UPT was created in 2012 by the Kirk Session to be the conduit between the congregation and our overseas partners in the Diocese of Muhabura in the south of Uganda, and is answerable to Session in relation to its projects, visits and funding and for the development of the Partnership.
Its aims are to engage the whole congregation with an overseas partner to help them understand some of the issues the church community in Uganda have to address, explore the underlining causes of poverty and where possible, address these issues from our own resources through the use of skill based help or financial assistance.
The engagement of Knock with the Diocese depends on their requests for help where no local solution can be found. Discussions and assessments and are made looking at feasibility and sustainability as being the long term goal.
Visits Strengthen Partnerships
Visits by both partners to our respective churches has contributed significantly to the strengthening of our partnership.
Underpinning our Partnership is Knock’s relationship with Tearfund and its Connected Churches Programme.
