The annual Worship Night set to take place tomorrow, Friday at the Worship House in Nansana is expected to attract over 10,000 people, according to popular gospel musician and Pastor, Wilson Bugembe.
Pastor Bugembe who is the leader of Worship House told a news conference ahead of the much-anticipated prayer and worship night that beyond worship, believers will use the night to pray for the country.
Themed ‘Breath of Life’, the worship night will feature international preachers; Bishop John Francis, Pastor Don Rohn Hee as well as Pastor Bugembe himself. The program will run between 6pm on Friday to 6am on Saturday.
“I believe that God can breathe life in things. In the Bible, Moses put a stick in a burning bush and a non-living thing became a living thing. I believe you can have a passport, ring or talent that is dead. Tomorrow, we are going to pray that God will breathe life in what you do,” Pastor Bugembe told journalists at the Worship House in Nansana on Thursday afternoon.
He added that; “At some point during the worship, we shall dedicate time to praying for the country. We are going to pray that there will be no more disaster. For about two years, we have been waking up to disasters like the killings of Kaweesi, Kirumira and Abiriga. I just pray that God will bring no disaster in 2019”.
Jack Cassidy, an American contemporary Christian artiste from Westlake, California arrived in Uganda yesterday and will be part of the worship. Cassidy took part in American popular TV singing competition, ‘The Voice’ in 2017 and has been on tour with American Christian music singer, Jeremy Camp.
“My music is different from the culture here, but I am really excited to be part of learning the culture here. Beyond that, I just want to see God moving in a very powerful way tomorrow,” Cassidy told SoftPower News.
He believes that worship is not just music but a medium to communicate how Christians ought to constantly live Godly.
According to Pastor Bugembe, all the popular gospel artistes in Uganda are lined up to perform on Friday night including a powerful choir of 100. Congolese award winning singer, Icha Kavons too will perform.
Police have given assurance regarding security during the event. SP Nsobya Hussein of the Political Counter Terrorism Unit told reporter that the Police has the capacity to handle the volume of people and asked the worshippers to cooperate with security personnel.
