16 October 2016, Nairobi, Kenya: Sunday service in the (Greek Orthodox) Saint Pathenios Orthodox Church, an autonomous congregation in the Waithaka neighbourhood in Nairobi, Kenya. Service is given in the local vernacular Kikuyu, with elements of English. The church mixes traditional orthodox rituals with African dance and music, as well as Pentecostal influences in their services. The church allows both women and men to be preachers, and efforts are also underway towards letting women become ordained. Sunday service comes in three blocks: morning glory, holy communion, and a session of preaching, before women, men, and youth, respectively, gather for safe-space fellowship meetings shortly after the service.
