Parishioners have been able to see into the life of a Christian in Northern Kenya with a special visit.

The Anglican Bishop of Marsabit, the Right Rev Rob Martin and his wife, Sue, were VIP visitors at the morning service at All Saints Church, in Ashover, and later joined worshippers from all four churches

Bishop Rob preached at the Sunday morning communion service which was led by the Rector of Ashover, the Rev Ralph Lawrence, with Bishop Bob Beak, and later gave a powerpoint presentation about the development of the Christian church in the Marsabit region which has grown from 35 to 45 churches in four years.

Lunch was organised by a team co–ordinated by Mary Mellor and Margaret Kirby and there was a vote of thanks.
