Mission Africa works in partnership with the Presbyterian Church of East Africa, which has a large mission station in Kikuyu, on the outskirts of Nairobi. In Kikuyu there are several children’s care centres, that look after several hundred children and teenagers, as well as a number of church-run schools. The team will spend time running a summer Bible programme, including Bible clubs, discipleship groups, crafts & activities, sports, and vocational training.

The team will also go into poorer areas of Nairobi to share food. They will go to local prisons to share the gospel using music, dance, drama and preaching.

The team will be involved with the PCEA Youth Department, running discipleship training sessions, local outreach events and helping with practical work..
