Sammy Omufwoko Nawali had grown up on the streets of Nakuru, a city two hours north of Nairobi. His life change after he met an English missionary called Alfred who took him off the streets to buy his first pair of shoes. Sammy was then enrolled into a local school where all his present and future expenses were met.

In the forthcoming years Sammy would eventually travel to Aberdeen in Scotland to study theology in order to become a Pastor of a church back in Kenya. Instead of pastoring a church, Sammy would ultimately pastor the whole community by establishing a primary and secondary school, an orphanage, a garage to help street boys into employment, and many other micro projects to help the community.



Please join us at the High Kirk Manse on Friday 15th September 2023 at 7.30pm, as our dear friend Sammy Nawali makes a special visit from Nakuru in Kenya to Stevenston. Come and meet Sammy and hear his remarkable story! 


The three Church of Scotland congregations in Stevenston hosted a 'Family Fun Day' on Saturday, 22nd July 2023, from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm in the High Kirk Gardens.

It was a day when the people in the town were invited to join them for a fun-filled afternoon of games and activities for children. They had a bouncy castle, face painting, crafts, beat the goalie, giant games, skittles, scavenger hunt, puppet theatre, barbecue, and teas & coffee, all available free of charge. The event provided them with an opportunity to share God's love with friends, neighbours, and those in their community.


The Youth Club also organised a 'Youth Night' for P6 – S4 on Tuesday, 25th July at 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm in the High Kirk Halls. They planned games, quizzes, challenges, and food, which gave everyone a chance to sit, chat, and get to know one another.

Both events turned out to be a huge success, bringing joy and some wonderful fun. It was great to see the community coming together and experiencing the love of God. Our Summer Mission leadership team were thankful for the support they received and appreciated the prayers and volunteer assistance from many kind-hearted individuals who wanted to make these events truly special.
