Renegade Anglican Christians of Bundibugyo District have resolved to create more archdeaconries and parish headquarters in a bid to meet the standards of a new diocese.
Last week, the council convened a meeting at Bumadu Archdeaconry chaired by canon Wilson Kiiza to come up with a roadmap on how to apply for the proposed West Ruwenzori Diocese.
The Christians early this month made a proposal to split from Ruwenzori Diocese based in Fort Portal Municipality.
However, they faced resistance from the church leadership which argued that a new diocese cannot be created using rebellion.
The leaders advised the Christians on the procedures of having their own diocese, which include having a cathedral, among other physical and human resources.
