Karen Christian Fellowship
Karen Christian Fellowship (London) was formed by a group of Karen ladies who were working in UK away from home about 10 years ago and it has developed into a vibrant bilingual church at Woodberry Down Baptist Church.
Our Worship Service is held every other Sunday at 2 pm and our services are conducted in a mix of Karen, Burmese and English. Our close-knit family fellowship would normally serve Burmese/Karen food after the service in Hockley Hall where we can catch up with one another and have fellowship together.
KCF select its committee members every year and form its fellowship team in a structure to work together as a team to serve God. It organises and leads programmes with three monthly members meeting making decisions for His Service.
KCF aims to establish the Karen Baptist Church in the future:
- To stand as a Christ centred Church whose aim is to know Christ individually and to share the love and the word of Christ to one another and others.
- To preserve our Karen Literature for next generation.
- To encourage our brothers and sisters and fellow believers of all Christian Denomination from Burma to participate in our worship services.
KCF started to serve God in Burma with a mission field of a Church in Karenni State since 2008, introduced by Saw Lordson Tun and Naw Ethel through Dr Rev Honor Nyo and have since extended to four mission fields so far. These are:
- Bible school in Hpa-an Karen state,
- A church in Karenni State,
- Cyclone orphanage (Kwin Yar village)
- Hmaw-bi Orphanage.
We have Monthly Bible studies (home cell programme) in each other's homes led by Pastor Charles Mugenyi. We invite other spiritual leaders from other Churches to our Worship Service for spiritual growth. We also fast and have a prayer chain on 1st Saturday of each month. There is Sunday school for our youngsters during every Worship Service. Our traditional Karen New Year Celebration is held each January with traditional dances, songs and foods by our brothers and sisters in Christ.
