  1. Friends Center Church Maringo

It started in 1956 and it is located on Rukwa road off Jogoo road in Maringo, east of Nairobi City (Eastlands). It is at the same location as the Friends Church Community Centre. The Community Centre has facilities and services that are needed by the community. Friends Centre church Maringo is the largest church in Nairobi Monthly Meeting. Most of the Friends Church (Quakers) Nairobi Monthly Meeting worship services are hosted at Friends Centre Church Maringo which occurs on every second Sunday of the month. It is at this worship service that believers from the seven local churches meet to worship God.

  1. Friends Church Makongeni

It was started in 1964 by Christians (Quakers) who were employed by Kenya Railways (the present Rift Valley Railways). In its humble beginnings, it started as a fellowship which grew rapidly to become a church. Believers used to meet in a hall at Makongeni and later on the Kenya Railways offered a building to be used as a place of worship. This was a major breakthrough because to this date Friends Church Makongeni has a building for worship at the same location.

The Church is located in Makongeni Estate, about three hundred meters from Jogoo road. Members of this church come from Makongeni estate, ShauriMoyo estate, LungaLunga, Kaloleni estate and other neighbouring residents in Eastlands.

It was started in 1972. Believers used to meet in a police canteen. Initially, a great percentage of the church population was the armed forces but as time went by the church had membership from the neighboring residents as well. The church was moved to a city council hall and later a plot was purchased. It is at this plot that Friends Church Embakasi is built. Apart from the church.

  1. Friends Church ShauriMoyo

It is about two Kilometers from Nairobi Central Business Board. It is located at ShauriMoyo opposite ShauriMoyo British America Tobacco(BAT) estate off Jogoo road. It started as a house fellowship that grew to become a church. The church used a hall at ShauriMoyo British America Tobacco (BAT) estate for worship.

In the year 1992, Friends Church ShauriMoyo acquired a plot from City Council of Nairobi and thus built a church building. It has 169 members.
