The Students Welfare of Ng’iya Girls High School aims to provide both students and teachers with an opportunity for spiritual growth and development in line with the vision and mission of the Founders of the school who envisioned an institution and community where spiritual engagement would form a central theme together with academic pursuit and excellence. From the history of the school, we learn that both academic work and worship went on side by side where the starting and ending of each day was by spiritual instruction followed by a special Sunday Service at the end of the week.
The Spiritual Welfare Department aims to enable students to get to know God better, to worship Him and serve Him in the various ways He leads and guides us. We read in Psalms 46:10, Be still and know that I am God…..The Sabbath was not ‘just another day ‘ in the Jewish calendar. It was a day of rest and a time of reflection to help know God better.
The Sponsor of the school, the Diocese of Maseno West, of the Anglican Church of Kenya, believes in freedom of worship and hence allows all students of the different faiths and denominations to exercise freedom to worship God in line with their denominational inclinations. This is a departure from certain institutions which do not allow various students to exercise their faiths unless you belong to the denomination of the sponsoring church. The Sponsors believe that diversities in the faiths supplements spiritual growth and development since the different faiths are not in competition.
The Christian Union members and the Young Christian Students hold their respective fellowships on Saturday evenings from 8.30 p.m. to 10 p.m. The Seventh Day Adventists (SDA) holds their meetings on Saturdays, starting in the morning.
The school holds a main Sunday Service attended by all students from 8.00 a.m. to 10.00 a.m. with an order of worship and presentations from different groups followed by a sharing of God’s Word from invited guest speakers.
Our prayer for the Ng’iya Girls High School community would be as in 1Thessalonians 5:23, “May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
