What’s in a word?
Worship Leader: Dr. Stephen Hampe

Music - Monk Rowe

Ugandan UU Minister and Gay Rights activist Rev. Mark Kiyimba- Guest Minster

Rev Kiyimba is a minister of a little church of 150 souls with very large hearts. Together they run a school for 650 children who have lost parents to HIV and AIDS, and an orphanage for 22 children infected with the virus. More broadly, he will speak about his experiences combatting the violent oppression of LGBT Ugandans.
