Church History

Church Land Purchase

The land on which the church was built was purchased from the late Hon. Dick Wathika during the tenure of Rev Canon Kamba, then Vicar of St. James Buru Buru, the curate then was Rev. John Anzaya.

Land lease and levelling

In April 2001, the then Vicar for St. James Buru Buru Ven. Canon Joel Waweru, current Bishop of Nairobi Diocese, leased the plot where the church stands now allowing the removal of a large hill of sand and garbage to pave way for the beginning of the church construction

2001 April

Foundation Stone laid

The foundation stone was laid on 9th June 2002 by the Late Most Rev. Dr. David Gitari, the former Archbishop and Bishop for Nairobi Diocese without any congregation.

The Late Mr. Arthur Kariuki, the proprietor of Planet Guest house situated in Umoja inner core, allowed
the first congregation to gather in his premises for worship. "It goes without saying that this
Parish was born in a guest house".
