Kibera Reformed Presbyterian Church
The Kibera Reformed Presbyterian Church is the focus of Mamlaka Foundation ministry. Imbumi Makuku serves as the pastor, and services are held each Sunday in Kibera with approximately 200 in attendance.
It is ironic to note that the property on which the church is situated was formerly known as “Freedom Corner,” an open space where drugs, prostitutes, moonshine, and marijuana could easily be obtained.
The church has a solid foundation in teaching and preaching the Bible throughout the week. The church has over the years ensured that it has Sunday school for all ages, men’s and women’s Bible studies, prayer meetings, youth rallies and services, camps and retreats for all ages, Vacation Bible schools, Bible clubs, HIV/AIDS support groups and marriage seminars. The church has also been part of a slum pastors outreach by providing study Bibles and a small reading library where slum pastors can come and prepare their sermons using solid evangelical books. KRPC holds retreats for slum pastors where it conducts teachings in the mornings, prayers in the afternoons and then revival meetings in the evening. All this is meant to encourage the pastors in the task that they have been called to, as for many it is a very lonely work and largely unappreciated. The church knows that it is only God who can change the lives of the people and through concerted times of seeking His presence in prayer, His help in the great task of spreading the gospel is realized. KRPC seeks to plant other churches that have a like minded vision of working among the poor in word and deed. It has other sister churches working in similar situations that it meets with for mutual encouragement in the great task of reaching the poor with the life changing message of the gospel.
KRPC seeks to restore the beauty of the urban poor through presenting Jesus Christ as all lovely and all sufficient for the transformation of the people. He continues to transform the inhabitants as His word is taken to heart.
