Namirembe cathedral is a must on a day trip in Kampala city. The cathedral is on the Namirembe hill. Walking up to the cathedral, you would be able to enjoy the city laid out on the side of the hill. There are millions of beautiful birds giving you the company. Sundays are busy and noisy. For foreign nationals, there is a guided tour available with UGX 10000. The tour takes you through the cathedral's history. But what is more worth is the visit to the cathedral. The structure is made of old Mahogany wood and is quite grand. I especially liked the Berlin Wall remnant. Keep at least 45 minutes for the visit. I was not impressed with the souvenirs on display as most items were too religious in nature.

The doors of this Anglican cathedral were open, but visitors have to pay 10,000 UGX to get in. Also Christians who just want to pray!! The 16th century Protestant revolt of which the Anglicans were part, was directed exactly against these kind of practices: payment for access to heaven or the house of God.

The present building dates from 1919. Earthen bricks and earthen roof tiles were used in the construction after previous structures did not survive fires and termites. The setting of the church is peaceful and quiet. Park surroundings are well maintained.

You do not have to pay to attend Sunday services. The last one starts at 10:00 AM and lasts 2 hours.

I attended the 8.30 am service in the synod hall while the Cathedral is being renovated. I took a tour afterwards with my hosts. This is A BUILDING TO RIVAL THE GREAT CATHEDRALS OF Europe. It has a capacity of over 2,000 but is nowhere near as ornate as the European Cathedrals. It is designed to purpose which is to worship the tru and living God.
Now in the hall the service I attended held about 4--. The choir rivalled that in the Whoopi Goldberg movies and they were fantastic. The preaching was animated and captivating, even tho it wwas translated to English.

For a truly great worship experience go for God here at Namiremebe. I would love o come back and hear th esinging with 2000 rocking Ugandans.

A place one should not miss.History states that every single brick which was used to build this beautiful Church was hand made on location.The first brick that was made is keppt on display at the Church.A serene sorrounding just sitting in the lawn can take your burdens away.

The church is lovely, but the setting--on one of Kampala's highest hills--is truly spectacular. My Saturday visit was made even more beautiful by the glorious wedding taking place in the sanctuary.

The Cathedral stands on the top of Namirembe Hill which will give you stunning views over the whole city. The restoration work has recently been completed and the building looks fantastic, both inside and out. Once the work on the grounds has been finished the whole area will look amazing. Don't forget to look into the small graveyard where early missionaries are buried along with the great martyr of modern times, Archbishop Janani Luwum. A visitors centre will soon be open here to tell the amazing history of this incredible church, now 100 years old and about to celebrate its centenary.

The cathedral is being renovated for next year's 100 anniversary so there was some scaffolding on the outside and work being done on the grounds. After going up the mosque's minaret, I can't say that the view from the cathedral is that dramatic.

It was unclear how we were supposed to go inside the cathedral or whether we were allowed to do so, but we eventually were allowed in and snapped several photos. It would be nice if there was some historical information provided, but the resources of the cathedral are clearly going elsewhere. The history of the grounds and adjacent hospital, etc are quite interesting.
