In April 2013, we were delighted to welcome Rev Moses Mukundi Cheche and Irene Njoki
Njoroge to Barrhead. Rev Moses is the Parish Minister at PCEA Kibera Parish, and
Irene is the Vice-Secretary of the Silanga High School Board.
The people of Barrhead had several occasions to meet the visitors; Rev Moses and
Irene spoke at four worship services and went along to social and fundraising events
held at five different Barrhead churches and visited Cross Arthurlie Primary School.
They also attended the Paisley & District Boys’ Brigade Battalion Parade and met
with the staff of the Church of Scotland World Mission Council in Edinburgh. They
visited the office of the Commonwealth Games and Irene visited Strathclyde University.
They both had the opportunity to see, and experience, some of Scotland’s cultural
attractions and our beautiful country

the time in Kibera.
