Our History

All Souls Cathedral church, Machakos was built between 1950 and 1951 by Christians of different denominations who lived in Machakos as a community church to the Glory of God and His worship.  In accordance with the wishes of the congregation the land on which the church was built was in 1952 vested in the Mombasa Diocesan Trustees; it had also previously been agreed and understood between the Anglican Church Diocese of Mombasa and the Overseas Presbytery of the church of Scotland in Kenya, that a church committee be appointed in accordance with the constitution of the Anglican church of Mombasa.  By this agreement was All Souls church, Machakos was entrenched as an Anglican church.  This agreement and understanding was duly set out and assented to, and attached to the Trust Deed as a memorandum with of understanding.  ASCM was dedicated on 20th January 1952. And the first baptism service was held the following Sunday 27thJanuary 1952 by the Rev’d G. Barrington.  At this time, Sunday services used to be held once per month.

In 1961, All Souls Church, Machakos became the Vicarage for the Anglican Parish for Southern Province comprising five churches, namely: Kibwezi, Athi River, Kajiado and Magadi.  Later in 1966 ASCM, became a full-fledged parish and the first African priest, the Rev’d M.R. Mbogho became the Vicar.  In 1992 ASCM was consecrated as Cathedral of Anglican Diocese of Machakos by the first Bishop, the Rt. Rev’d Benjamin Nzimbi.  Up-to date the throne of the Diocesan Bishop is housed in this church.
