Karura Community Chapel is a non–denominational congregation that was started in January 1996. The church was started by a team of six people, who formed the Interim Leadership, and a core group, committed to the plant out of the mother church, of about thirty adults.
This team met for about 3 months prior to the plant and worked together in developing a philosophy of ministry, purpose statement, name of the church, ministry plan, and so on prior to the launch of the Church on January 7, 1996, at the Gigiri Kindergarten, just behind the popular Village Market. The first group of about 30 registered members was received in May 1996.
It was registered under section 10 of the Kenya societies Act on 13th April 2006.
