Watoto Church, formerly Kampala Pentecostal Church (KPC) is an English-speaking cell-based community church located around East Africa and headquartered in Kampala, Uganda. The vision of the church is "an English speaking cell-based community church, celebrating Christ, growing and multiplying as each one reaches one, touching those around us with the love of Jesus, bringing healing to the cities and the nations." Watoto means "the children" in Swahili.
The church has various cell groups in Kampala. Each cell comprises about 7 to 10 members who meet at least once a week in one of the member's home. During the meeting they share fellowship.
The Church was founded by Pastor Gary Skinner and his wife, Marylin Skinner who are the current pastoral team leaders, assisted by various campus pastors and other ministry leaders.
Watoto Church is home to Watoto Child Care Ministries, a ministry that assists vulnerable children and women in Uganda, best known for its Watoto Children's Choir that tours the World every year, spreading the Gospel and raising financial assistance for their fellows back home.
The Church was found in the Ugandan capital, Kampala, with the main branch dubbed Watoto Church Downtown, and has expanded over the years across the city with Watoto Church Kisaasi, Watoto Church Bweyogerere, Watoto Church Lubowa, Watoto Church Kyengera, Watoto Church Kansanga, Watoto Church Bugolobi, across Uganda, Watoto Church Bbira in Wakiso District , Watoto Church Suubi in Mpigi District, Watoto Church Gulu and Watoto Church Laminadera in Gulu District. The vision of the Church is to keep on expanding to cover the entire country of Uganda and possibly across East Africa with a strong standing campus already in war torn South Sudan, Watoto Church Juba.
