The East African Revival (Luganda: Okulokoka) was an important renewal movement within Protestant Evangelicalism in East Africa during the late 1920s and 1930s. The Revival began at a Church Missionary Society (CMS) mission station in the Belgian territory of Ruanda-Urundi in 1929, and spread to Uganda Protectorate, Tanganyika Territory and Kenya Colony during the 1930s and 1940s.
The revival contributed to the significant growth of the Church in East Africa in the 1940s through the 1970s and had a visible influence on Western missionaries who were observer-participants of the movement.[page needed]
