Thika diary – Ruiru Parish – photos #8

Finally, on Saturday, the members of the group were able to visit their link parishes and to meet some of the people who live there

St Michael & All Angels, Ruiru

Foundation stone. Thika Diocese was founded only 20 years ago and already has 30,000+ worshipping members of over 40 parishes.

Archdeacon Joseph and People’s Warden Johnny. AD Joseph is caretaking Ruiru parish and its neighbouring parish of Karoa while they wait to appoint a new minister.

Service times are about to change which might require some repainting!

No escape! Tithes and offerings are received each Sunday with great ceremony.
