Kahawa Sukari church whose theme is worship the Lord with gladness is one of the eleven parishes in the Nairobi north presbytery.
The serene church rests on a plot which was donated on 19th February 1992 by the directors of Kahawa Sukari Limited by name Stephen M. Mbugua, Edward R. Kanjabi, the late Paul. Muigai and the late Bethwel Muiruri Laban.
The responsibility of establishing the Sukari church was assigned to PCEA Kimbo church Elders James Berunju and Stephen Kariuki on 5th July 1992 in an occasion where the church plot and other six plots were dedicated by Rev. Francis Njoroge the then Parish Minister, PCEA Mathare Parish.
Most remarkable was the Sunday the 12th July 1992 when the congregation of Kahawa Sukari commenced their first worship service. The first preacher was Rev. Godfrey Ngumi who preached under a tent donated by a member to 29 adults and 20 children. The pioneering Elder was Amos Nganga.

In a bid to serve the community, the church established Sukari Presbyterian Academy in 1992 with only two pupils and one teacher namely tr. Eunice Nguri who is still working in the Academy today. Through lips and bounds, the school has grown today to become a fully pledged primary school with over 800 pupils and sixty two (62) staff.
In addition the church established Sukari Presbyterian Senior Boys Secondary school in 2012 with only one student and two teachers and today the senior school has a total of seven boys.
Several stones of commemoration have been unveiled an indication of growth in permanent infrastructure and are as follows.
