The CWF mainly known as the Christian women Fellowship is one of the church of Uganda departments. It started during the regime of the Late Archbishop Rt. Rev. Livingstone Mpalanyi Nkoyoyo by the time he was the Bishop of Mukono Diocese in 1980s. His main dream was to see a women Fellowship start and be sustained by helping the women to get involved in preaching the Gospel, growing socially and economically.
Christian women Fellowship has membership of all ladies 12 years and above who were baptized and confirmed in the Christian faith (Church of Uganda) . This Fellowship in 1980s it started with few members, about 20 but currently 2019 it has more than 2000 members. In this case we consider only those women who pay membership, every year each woman pays 10,000/=.
The work of mobilizing the women is normally done by the CWF executives of all level, the priests’ wives, the community Development Coordinator the president and Maama Bishop.
The CWF department make a change in its leadership according to its by- laws in the constitution and the constitution of the church of Uganda. For that reason there is change of leadership every after 4 years and if the leader is given another term of serving in the same position, she only serves for more 4yrs a total of 8yrs only.
