Service of Healing and Blessing for the Anglican Diocese of Katakwa. 

The unity of the Body of Christ remains at the core of the ministry of the Church. Amid turmoil, uncertainty, pain, and division, we are called upon to walk in love and seek to engage each other in humility, allowing ourselves to be instruments of God’s Peace.

32 years since the creation of the ACK Diocese of Katakwa, the Diocese has grown exponentially, learning from the challenges that were witnessed prior to its creation.

Before being curved out of the ACK Diocese of Nambale, there were calls from sections of Christians residing on the Side of Nambale who wanted to have a Diocese of their own. That process witnessed tensions that nearly dented the good course that was being championed.


Against that past, Christians in Katakwa have worked to remain united and build a stronger family of Faith- anchored in love and an unwavering commitment to remain part of the Christian Family.

Today we fellowshipped and broke bread together with representation from the Diocese during a solemn service of Healing, repentance, commissioning and Blessing at Bishop Bourne, Nairobi.

We took time to reflect on that past, extend a hand of forgiveness, and commit the Diocese to the unending love and mercy of God.

The delegation was led by the Diocesan Bishop, the Rt. Rev. John Okude, Archdeacons and Christians.

The Archbishop (Emeritus) Benjamin Nzimbi-then Bishop of Machakos and was appointed by the Late Archbishop (Emeritus) Manasses Kuria to spearhead the process of the creation of the Diocese, shared the sermon.

The Archbishop of Kenya, the Most Rev. Dr. Jackson Ole Sapit presided over the service, assisted by the Provincial Secretary, Rt. Rev. Prof. Joseph Galgalo.
