The new United Church of Zambia (UCZ) Synod complex building in Lusaka was officially opened and commissioned last November, following the thanksgiving and consecration service organised for the newly built facility in February last year. The occasion was graced by the first Republican President, His Excellence Dr Kenneth Kaunda, and the Council of Churches in Zambia (CCZ) general secretary Rev. Emmanuel Chikoya declared the building officially opened.
Formally known as the United Church House, it was built for “prudent administration of the mission of the Church and “offering space to others for the Development of this Nation and the world at large”, according to UCZ Synod Bishop Rev. Bishop Sydney Sichilima who commissioned the building as a mission centre to the world.
Earlier in the morning, representatives of all ten Presbyteries of the UCZ had gathered at the old UCZ Synod headquarters to participate in the dissolution of the old headquarters and to dedicate the new facility to God’s glory as they serve the Zambian people with the “ministry of compassion”.
