Redeemed Gospel Church - Thika Town.
Redeemed Gospel Church Thika Town is located next to Total petrol station along Garissa road as you get into Thika town from Nairobi. It is located some 42 km from Nairobi. Redeemed Gospel Church Thika Town is a branch of the larger Redeemed Gospel Church Family which has its headquarters in Huruma, Nairobi.
The church was started with a congregation of less than 10 members. The Congregation gathered but relocated across several small halls in Thika Town before securing a leased piece of land in Thika Town. This was before being chased from the hall where the church was located and so moved to a swampy piece of land where the first couple of Sunday services were held as open air services.
Bishop Moses Mbugua and Pastor Florence Mbugua, the visionaries of the branch remained consistent in their service to God despite the numerous challenges that included their children being sent home from school for lack of school fees among other challenges but God is indeed faithful.
An iron sheet structure was built on the piece of land and the congregation began to grow steadily both spiritually and physically. The church relocated to the current sanctuary in May 2012 and have confirmed to see the goodness of the Lord. The new sanctuary is a great place of worship; the mountain of prayer, healing and deliverance.
(RGC)Redeemed Gospel Church Inc. started in a dilapidated nursery school structure in Mathare valley slums in Nairobi Kenya in 1974. The Archbishop Dr Arthur Kitonga and Mama with a team of committed brethren answer to God’s call started what is now famously called the Redeemed Gospel Church Inc.
After an effective stint at Mathare Valley, the Archbishop planted the Home and Mother Church “the Huruma Church branch” in 1982.
By the Grace of God, RGC Inc has now spread to almost every city and town in Kenya with over 1000 churches local and internationally i.e. Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Zambia, South Africa, U.S.A, (Boston and Delaware)
