Southern Cross has been privileged to work closely with the Gloryland Worship Centre in Dandora a slum district of Nairobi, Kenya. Since our Pastor's first visit in 2004, this has become very much our sister church with close liaison between our leadership and theirs.
Pastors Steve and John in 2004
Pastor John Odiero is very concerned about the lack of training many pastors in this community receive. He is working together with us to set up a programme to help these men receive the training they need.
To help those lacking the basic resources pastors in the west take for granted, the Ebenezer Christian Library has been established. It has been furnished by books from AiM's Tools for the Job, and a supply lovingly made available by Grace Publications.
Books recently distributed at a Pastor training seminar
These were made available by the kind assistance of Pastor Training International
Education of the young
Amongst other projects, the Gloryland Worship Centre runs
The Victory Education Centre.
A school for the children of the poor in Dandora. The staff are not paid, but the church tries [when finances permit] to give a gift of approximately £30 a month to each of the teachers.
We are delighted to announce that the CD Children in Africa is now again available either from southern Cross or from Portslade Infant School [see link below]
All money raised through it's sale will go to help The Victory Education centre.
Water recently installed
by money raised through a sponsored walk organised by a member of Southern Cross' youth group, Crusaders, and by a gift donated by Portslade Infant School
