Then I saw another angel flying in mid-air, and he had the eternal gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth – to every nation, tribe, language and people.     Rev 14:6


Jessica Pattison is a committed member of St. Mary's Church and a local primary school teacher who has been visiting Uganda since 2013. Since she took her Mum to the country in 2017, it's been a joint effort to make a difference in the lives of these amazing communities. In order to direct the projects, a vision and charity were formed to build Hope House in 2017. This is a children's and community centre, a hub for many different projects that will benefit the most needy in Kambuga, Kanungu. This is in addition to the amazing work that is already being facilitated in Uganda - the building of schools, sponsoring needy children, investing in people, running our farm, an agriculture project and training programme for destitute teenage boys, enterprise, teaching, spiritual care and showing the love of Jesus Christ in all ways in the schools and communities local to Kanungu District. This page shows you a brief snapshot of the Hope House projects from the heart of Jess, and her mum, Helen, who has now relocated to Uganda to oversee this growing work, to the heart of the community it will become for the children, their families and their wider community. Thank you for being a part of the journey.

Jess says:

"Going to Uganda has shown me the plan God has for my life.  I have left my heart in Africa and I know that these are the people God has called me to make a difference in their lives.  I am passionate about changing the lives of the children of Kinkiizi diocese through education, support, and love and showing them that they have a mighty God who cares about them, who loves them and will be with them through any situation they are challenged with.  The task is great - the need is enormous, but already we are seeing a difference in the schools I have been fortunate to work in and the community I am a part of....God is at work in Africa - and he's using St. Mary's as his servant.  I can't wait to get back to Uganda next year....and see what exciting things He has planned for us then."


Evas is part of a family who have received prayer and financial support, she says:

"and we must say God bless you now and forever more ...thank you for loving Uganda.  You have blessed us in all kinds, say physical and financial...we have nothing to offer but love.  You have taught me that whenever I see a person in need, I just give what I have, either food or a drink.  The church family and dear Jess taught me how to be kind and bless someone in this world."
