A farewell service was held in St Paul’s Parish Church, Lisburn on Sunday 16th August for a team of 25 people from the parish who are travelling to Kajaido Diocese in Kenya in two groups. The first group will leave on Friday 21st and the second group will leave on Friday 28th. The Rector, the Rev Jim Carson will lead the teams, assisted by the Curate, Stephen McWhirter. On Sunday 23rd August the team will be involved in worship in Kajaido Cathedral. During the first week the team will be doing some ‘bike’ classes and looking at the building programme at the Maasai Girls School.
The St Paul’s team to Kajaido has four main aims:
In consultation with Ronnie Briggs, C.M.S.I. Mission Partner in Kajaido, the parish through a church collection and donations in June 2008 raised £3,000 for a first motorbike, which was dedicated at a special service in Kajaido on the 16th November 2008 by the Bishop Taama. This is the first of another five motorbikes the parish are providing to coincide with the teams visit. These came through St Paul’s Girls Brigade, a generous gift by a parishioner, Wallace Grammar school and fund-raising in the parish.
This is part of a three year project called ‘Forward Together in Faith and Mission, at home and abroad, 2008-2010’ which also includes a week of outreach in February 2010 which may also include some participation from Kajaido.
