Have you ever imagined cultural safaris in Uganda about the smallest churches in the world? Most people say we like are special and unique, yes we are. Our cultural safaris offer more than what your eyes can see, this is so good for the ears as well. A smallest church in the world found in Uganda hmm this is real.
Aimed at the spiritual healing for persons and groups, way back in the 1996, the church of Uganda’s retired Archbishop His Lordship Henry Luke Orombi created a nine prayer points together with a Korean national Pastor Song on Biku hill, 18kms from the Nebbi town, North West of Uganda. The church stands at a width of approximately 2.5m and a height of 8ft. The tiny worshiping place has the capacity of accommodating three (3) people including the priest making it the smallest church in the world.
What is unique about Bethel church / smallest church in the world?
- Hmmm, because it is the smallest church in the world, and of course sitting three persons really?
- It is on 2.5m with a height of 8ft.this church is so small that it enriches not only our northern cultures but also the cultural safaris in Uganda. People in the north do not construct big house, making this church to them is very ok and has nothing alarming.
- It’s a home of birds including the rare Shoebill that will be found in few places in Africa.

Bethel church is surrounded by 9 prayer points that allow people to pray, praise and to meditate on the word of God. The 1st prayer points lies on top of the hill and it comes with a big cross. The second point is a Lilliputian building made in remembrance of Jesus Christ with 12 windows in the Western and Eastern side reflecting the 12 disciples of Jesus Christ. It is at this point that the love for birds come out, this gives an excellent view of Namrwodho falls that offers refuge to the elusive shoebill stork, the most fascinating and sought after bird species on a cultural safaris in Uganda.
On the map of Africa is crafted the 3rd point 2 entrances, ten (10) windows that represent the 10 (ten) commandments in the Bible. points 4, 5 and 6 are placed in spacious quiet garden with point 4 crafted inform of a heart reflecting Jesus Christ’s Love with a cross of 33 stones that represent 33 years of Jesus Christ.

The 6th point is made in an alter shape that is a living testimony which church is a living providing to Jesus Christ’s mission and the rough stones on the cross signify that Christians are living stones. The 7th point is a round structure like the shape of the world and it is found at the back of a towering rock with an open ended cave at its base, and entering into it means one has to crawl from end to another to sight Jesus Christ’s suffering and it is a 5 minute crawl for the visitors through the cave’s darkness horrifying to the extent that one can imagine that the cave can easily breakdown and bury them there. The 8th point of this spiritual healing center contains 12 windows at its entrance reflecting the 12 stones on Aaron’s breast plate that is say the 12 tribes of all the saints.
The ceiling has 7 (seven) beams representing the 7 rainbow colors that also reflect God’s covenant not to destroy the world with floods again; the Eastern window provides views of the cross that is placed on the top, at point 2 a sight that offers the Christians a chance to always search for Jesus.

Very small in its size, the church still took a lot of bags of cement and stones for it to be constructed and it was built in such a way that it takes a minimum of at least 500 years for it to start weakening.
