This study has investigated the role of the Christian Church in resolving conflicts in Uganda. It has clearly demonstrated that the major cause of the conflict is non other than greed that motivates the unfair power sharing between the ruling party and the opposition, various ethnicity and tribes generally in Uganda. The study has therefore, recommended that fair power sharing is the solution to divide in the sections in Uganda. It also suggests that, the Christian church that has failed to help prevent or stop the current conflicts particularly case in point is the Lord Resistance Army of Joseph Koney. It also needs to foster a spirit of confession and reconciliation within her congregations, so as, to have a community o repentance, forgiveness, prayer and reconciliation.
