About Us

Calvary Chapel Kampala is a Bible teaching Church with a mission to Love and Disciple.

Calvary Chapel Kampala is part of the Calvary Chapel fellowship of churches started by Pastor Chuck Smith at Costa Mesa, California in 1965.

Calvary Chapel Kampala began on May 5th 2002 as a small fellowship of believers meeting together in a storefront on Nkrumah Road. The church congregation grew gradually as people were drawn to the simple and thorough teaching of the Word of God.

As a result the fellowship outgrew the Nkrumah Road location and now meets at Gadith House, William Street, 3rd and 4th Floors. Over the years Calvary Chapel Kampala has been a leadership training ground and a home from where many have been sent out to plant churches and other Kingdom missions.


  1. We are here to love God and one another: We love God through our adoration and service to Him. We love one another by looking out for each other’s spiritual, emotional and physical welfare.

    Congregation-(3)Mark 12:30-31‘And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. “And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”John 13:34-35“”A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

  2. We are here to disciple: Our desire is to grow in the knowledge of the Lord and equip the body of Christ for His work. Our discipleship tool is the Word of God that is taught Book by Book, chapter by chapter and verse by verse.

    bibleEphesians 4:11-12And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.Mathew 28:19-20 – “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, “teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

History of Calvary Chapel Kampala

Calvary Chapel Kampala (CCK) began in May 2002 as a small fellowship of believers meeting together in a storefront on Nkrumah Road. The church congregation grew immediately as people were drawn to the simple teaching of the Word of God.

In less than one year the fellowship outgrew the Nkrumah Road location, and now meets in a larger building in the centre of Kampala. The Word of God taught by Calvary Chapel pastors is changing lives over the airwaves.

Mission and church planting are also a big part of the fellowship. CCK missionaries are being sent out to start churches and continue the work of God in East Africa. The Future is promising for Calvary Chapel Kampala as the Lord continues to do His mighty work.

Calvary Chapel Kampala is part of the Calvary Chapel movement started by Pastor Chuck Smith of CC Costa Mesa. CC Costa Mesa is a non-denominational evangelical Christian church that began with twenty-five people in Costa Mesa, California in 1965 by Pastor Chuck Smith. Pastor Chuck Smith was a key minister to the youth in what is called the Jesus movement of the 1960s. As he reached out to the youth of the counter-culture – the hippies, drug users, and those rebelling against tradition – many accepted the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

God gave the increase and thousands gave their lives to Christ. Today, Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa is listed among the world’s twenty largest churches with more than thirty-five thousand calling it their home church. From this first Calvary Chapel many men were raised up who went out to start new Calvary Chapel churches. These in turn also raised up new pastors and church starters so that today there are over one thousand five hundred Calvary Chapels around the world.–>

Hello- I am a CCOB missionary serving no short term missions in northern Uganda. I listened to you speak at the pastors conference in Mukono. I am praying to support a Ugandan pastor to attend the Kampala Bible college. If possible, I would ask to know the entrance criteria, options in taking the courses, the times the new semester would start, and the cost for each semester, and anything else you feel would be important to know. The pastor is living in Moyo. Thank you for your help. May our LORD be blessed

My husband and I arrive in Kampala morning Tuesday July 30 (tomorrow) for a three to four year work assignment. It is our first priority to find a Christian fellowship to become a part of so I am writing to places I have found on line ( such as Calvary Chapel) for information about the church and/or Bible study groups. Do you have a women’s bible study or any home groups that meets? What time is your Sunday service. Do you have a church office that one can visit during the week if I were able to pop by and visit the church? Thank you for any information you are able to give me. I do not know anyone in Uganda! I look forward to hearing from you, Sincerely, Ruth Thompson
