Church buys off popular city club Herisquare turning the place to a chapel
The only thing that does not change is change itself but some changes are pretty radical even in the spiritual realm.
However, it appears, the church really loved the location of the club and even the easy recognition their new Chapel would have.
Mamlaka Hill Chapel whose headquarters are in Kilimani has announced a new branch which sees the club expand to the city outskirts in Ruaka.
Its new location is what used to be the home of a popular club known as Herisquare. The Club used to be popular given its size and location from town just near the road. Live bands and plays were also a common feature.
Churchill, Avril, Rich Mavoko are just some of the artistes who have performed in recent tims. Now Mamlaka Hill Chapel is carrying out renovations at the place as it prepares to open up for the first sermon.
Its huge outdoor area along with amenities like swimming pools have made it a great investment on the side of the church. The location was also a popular picnic area as well as corportae functions like team building and conferencing.
Still Twitter had a number of hilarious reactions over the change from the surprising to the hilarious. One guy best captured the mood of regular revelers with this tweet
