|The All Star Church Venue: Laico Regency Hotel, Nairobi Kenya|
All-Star Church opened its doors to famous people in Nairobi on July 7.
The church will use a hall at the Laico Regency, a five-star hotel frequented by the who’s who in Kenya.
The church wants to preach the gospel to musicians, actors, sports stars, top politicians and corporate chiefs.
Churches mostly frequented by VIPs in Nairobi include Mavuno, Nairobi Pentecostal Church (Valley Road) and Jesus Celebration Centre (JCC).
According to the senior pastor of All-Star Church Catherine Munene, the church is for “high-end Christians who cannot go to River Road churches.”
When the church was inaugurated during the July 7 Sunday service, top names in corporate and political world were part of the congregation.
They included former Big Brother contestant and now Ziwani county rep, Millicent Mugadi. Governor Evans Kidero was expected to attend All-Star’s first service but he was said to have attended the Sotokoto Marathon.
Pastor Esther Obasike led the opening service.
All-Star’s Pastor Munene, said that “We are not looking for celebrities or hunting for them. But we are encouraging them to come as we are offering what is relevant.”
She also dismissed claims that she had been given the church hall for free by the Libya-owned hotel.
“We are paying a lot of money which of course I cannot disclose. Please don’t listen to rumours that could destroy my church. I know media houses destroy churches and if The Nairobian does this we will deal with you. We are very powerful,” she said as she invited the writer to attend one of her services. ....
