“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” Phil.4:13
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.
