Our Partnerships

St John's, Kanyuambora

Rev Elizabeth Kibai, Vicar of St Johns, Kanyuambora, with Rev Christiana Asinugo, Vicar of St. Matthews, West Ham
St Matthews church is in the Anglican diocese of Chelmsford. The diocese has for many years had a partnership link with a number of dioceses in eastern Kenya which were all once part of the diocese of Mount Kenya East. Through the diocesan partnership link parishes are being encouraged to develop links with parishes in Kenya. St Matthews is currently exploring developing a link with St John's, Kanyuambora. St John's is in the diocese of Mbeere, one of the dioceses which has a partnership link with Chelmsford diocese. In October 2014 Rev Elizabeth Kibai, the vicar of St John's spent 10 days with St Matthews, sharing in the life of the parish and in September 2015 we will be making a return visit to St John's. The bishop of Mbeere, Moses Nthuka, has also visited St Matthews on several occasions.
