PCEA UK Outreach was born out of the desire to reach out to, and care for pastorally, the significant East African community, and Kenyans in particular, who are living and working in London as well as other major cities in the UK.
In April 2006, Rev. Edwin Kibathi and his wife, Anne, were commissioned by the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of East Africa (PCEA) to a new work of church planting ministry amongst the East African diaspora in the UK.
Since arriving in the UK in May 2006, and encouraged by the pastoral oversight of Plaistow Christian Centre, the Kibathis have planted a growing and vibrant church of Kenyan expatriates, mainly former members of the PCEA who have come to study or work in London.
Plans for the future include the possibility of a youth exchange programme for the young people from PCI and PCEA UK Outreach.
