KIARIE, George. Factors inhibiting inculturation of the holy communion symbols in the Anglican Church in Kenya. A case study of the diocese of Thika. Missionalia (Online) [online]. 2016, vol.44, n.3, pp.301-320. ISSN 2312-878X.

The bread and wine are the central symbols used in the sacrament of the Holy Communion in the Anglican tradition. In some provinces in the Anglican Communion, these symbols are being substituted, but the Anglican Church in Kenya has remained adamant. In light of this, this article argues that cultural factors and the inherited Anglican identity have been key impediments to inculturation of the Holy Communion symbols. The article is informed by qualitative data obtained from Anglican Church in Kenya (ACK) adherents in the diocese of Thika.
