The Contribution of the Christian Churches to the Development of Western Uganda 1894-1974


Deogratias M. Byabazaire

Christian Churches, especially in the Third World, are reconsidering and planning their responsibility in contemporary society. This has become necessary since some of the traditional ideas on the mission of the Church have become inadequate in modern and developing nations. The Churches are emphasizing that their task is mainly that of service to society. This service is to society as a whole and must have the betterment of this society as its goal. In fulfilling this purpose, the Churches must therefore plan their strategy by first examining and evaluating the role they have played in the spiritual, social, economic and political progress. This study has been done in this light.
