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
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.
The founding members also found it necessary to institute a constitution
