Misikiti or misikitini. I know the latter was used in a previous lesson and I'm not imagining it.
I believe the final NI is a locative and means "in the mosque." You may also have found mkutanoNI for (at the) meeting.
Noun classes are essential to being able to understand how to correctly determine prefixes of verbs/adjectives/adverbs etc.
The word 'msikiti' is in the noun class 'U/I', and as such you'll have:
wetu - Misikiti
'Zetu' would be used for the plural form of nouns in the noun classes:
'U/Zi' (e.g. Ukuta
wetu una ufa - Kuta
zetu zina nyufa)
'I/Zi' (e.g. Nyumba
yetu ni safi - Nyumba
zetu ni safi)
Side note, most (if not all) nouns in the noun class 'I/Zi' remain the same in singular and plural
