Group of wor­ship­pers dis­rupts ser­vice in Juja and de­mands to con­duct Mass

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics General -

Bethel Church of God and Bethel Church con­gre­gants of the two groups traded barbs on Sun­day. Bethel Church mem­bers came from Ruiru and Nembu, Gatundu South, and stormed Bethel Church of God, Juja sub­county. The 10 mem­bers said they own the church and they will re­claim it. They dis­rupted the ser­vice and de­manded to con­duct Mass. “I came in the morn­ing and found two ve­hi­cles in the com­pound. When I got in, I found strange peo­ple had oc­cu­pied the al­tar,” Pas­tor Stephen Churu said. He said he con­fronted them. “I po­litely told them to move from the al­tar and join other be­liev­ers but they said they have taken over,” Churu said. Mem­bers of Bethel Church of God then turned rowdy and kicked out the strangers. “There is no way we would have al­lowedthem to dis­re­spect the church,” Es­ther Wan­jiku said. The church was closed pend­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
