About Karura Community Centre

Karura Community Centre is the brainchild of Karura Community Chapel. Unprecedented influx of Internally Displaced People (IDPs) in the church and its environs in 2008 triggered the church leadership to think of establishing a nonprofit to manage and coordinate humanitarian and development activities among needy residents in the communities around the church.

Our aim is to cause wholistic transformation in local communities in Kenya through the practical application of the Word of God in every area of life in the community. This we seek to do by working with and through the local churches.

As indicated in our Vision, Karura Community Chapel seeks to be a body of believers who are engaging the world for Jesus. Jesus calls us “The Salt of the Earth” and “The Light of the World” (Matt 5:14-16) we are called to disciple the nations (Matt 28:19), we are called “ambassadors of Christ” (2 Cor. 5:17-21) and told “whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men” (Col. 3:23).

We seek to mobilize the body of Christ, to engage the world for Jesus Christ.
