Kikore Parish 

The parish of Kikore lies on the northern edge of the Diocese of Kondoa and has a population mainly consisting of Wamburu, Wagogo, Masai and Wairangi tribes.

The parish is predominantly Christian and there are Anglican, Catholic, Pentecostal and Lutheran churches in the village. There are three churches in the parish, in Kikore, Mihembeti and Dachenche. The church in Kikore is small and so they are building a larger church and the church in Mihembeti is yet to be finished. There is a primary and a secondary school in the village and the church also has a kindergarten. There is a water source in the village so people are able to farm all year around and the parish is much more fertile than other parts of the Diocese. Maize, beans and sunflowers are grown as well as bananas and vegetables.

The Pastor is Shemasi Yohanna Sarme.
