About Us

The Evangelical Choir was founded on the 2nd day of March 1981 and the

founding members that had gathered at that time decided to call it the

“EVANGELICAL CHOIR OF CHRIST THE KING CHURCH KAMPALA”.

The members gathered then set for themselves the following objectives :

To sing Sacred Church Music at Christ The King Church in the 9.00 O’clock

Mass or in any other Mass or other place upon invitation or request.

To foster and strengthen a good and understanding working relationship

amongst other choirs of Christ The King Parish.

To lead the Parishioners in church music and liturgical functions.

To strengthen and foster a good, understanding and smooth working

relationship amongst members.

To enable members develop spiritually.

Since its inception the Evangelical Choir has made great strides towards

meeting these

objectives.

MEMBERSHIP

The Evangelical Choir has two types of membership namely the Ordinary

membership and Supporting membership/Board of trustees. All members of

the Evangelical Choir are guided first and primarily by the norms and

principles of the Universal Roman Catholic Church, secondarily by the

guidelines set by the Archdiocese of Kampala under the guidance of the

Parish Priest and the curate in charge of choirs at Christ the King Parish

and thirdly by the constitution set up by the founding members which

guides the members as they are at the duty of evangelization.

GUIDANCE
