Here are Four of The Most Expensively Built Churches in Kenya

When it comes to religion, Kenya is predominantly occupied by the Christian religion followed by Islam which is also very active.

However, when it comes to buildings across the country, many churches have heavily invested in the kind of buildings they worship under.

This has seen the rise of churches that are magnificently built and at a very high cost to the congregants who in most cases foot the bill.

Here are the top four most expensively built and oldest churches across the country:

Holy Family Basilica in Nairobi

This catholic church located at the heart of the Central Business District in Nairobi, is home to about 4,000 worshippers every Sunday.

The church was the first stone structure in Nairobi, dating back to the year 1904 and this must have costed the Roman Catholic Church a lot of money at the time.

All Saints Cathedral in Nairobi

Money was first raised for the building of the church at the heart of Nairobi in the year 1914.

The first stone for the construction of the church was laid in 1917 and building of the church commenced where it sits today.

It was very expensive for the church to build it back in the early 1900s in Kenya.

Winners Chapel in Nairobi

This is the biggest church in Kenya with the capacity of about 12,000 worshippers at a given time.

It also cost the mother church which is found in Nigeria a pretty penny to set up the towering structure that is behind Airtel Headquarters in Nairobi.

Christ is The Answer Ministries Church in Nairobi

Located at Nairobi's affluent neighborhood of Parklands, the church cost the congregants a huge amount of money to set up.

It also sits on prime real estate land which is worth tens of millions of shillings at Parklands.
