Location
The Diocese is situated South of Nairobi Capital city with Rift Valley
on the North and Thika Diocese on the Eastern side. The Diocese is
mainly in a Rural area. We are divided in 12 Archdeaconries and most
Archdeaconries have more than 5 Parishes making a membership of about
15,000 in total.
We do hold Prayers/Fellowships from Parish level to Diocesan level where
women gather from all over the Diocese for Prayers/Rallies. We do
invite facilitators (Speakers) who talk on different topics that do help
the Mothers so much such as Health, Nutrition, family life (Marriages).
The Mothers’ meet mostly on Wednesdays or any other preferred day in a
week and pray for different issues like Country, our families, Church
etc. Mothers’ also do hold Missions whereby we usually help the poor,
sick, elderly, orphans etc.
As the Coordinators of the Mothers’ Union we arrange for Seminars and
Counselling sessions whereby Women are divided in two categories e.g.
the old and young mothers.
