To welcome and embrace all who
come into this beautiful ancient place of peace
to be blessed, healed and equipped by God
for the challenges of everyday life.


We would like to welcome you to our service today, especially if you are a visitor. We invite you to join us at Holy Communion to receive the bread and wine, symbols of God’s love for us (except for the 10 am service on the first Sunday of every month.)  If you do not wish to receive Holy Communion, please do come up for a blessing, just keep your hands by your side as you come to the rail.  If you use a hearing aid, please put it to the “T” setting.  Please do join us for a cup of tea or coffee in the Hall after the 10 am service.

MIDWEEK COMMUNION  - During the Interregnum there will be NO Wednesday 10 am service. 

PRAYER WALKS – Every 1ST Tuesday of the month -  Tuesday  3rd July and 7th August.  Please come along with or without a dog, and we all have a good chatter, and then stop, reflect and pray at several intervals along the way, we start at 9.30 am on Commonside near the old Rectory – we often end up having a nice cup of tea/coffee!

After our last very successful morning, we would like as many as possible to come and help with jobs in the Churchyard, but also dusting high places in the Church!  Please come along with your tools, all will be welcome, and tea/coffee and squash will be provided!  10 am – 12 noon.  Thank you!

HEALING & WHOLENESS (H&W) - Every 3rd Sunday,  we offer healing and wholeness prayers for all who may like the benefit of a special prayer,  just after taking Communion, in the foyer.  Dates are Sundays 15th July & 19th August.

HELP NEEDED – If there is anyone who would be able to help out occasionally by hoovering and dusting the Church, we would be most grateful.  Please ask the Churchwardens or Tricia for more information.  Thank you!

DEANERY SYNOD REPRESENTATIVE – Want to make a difference?  Don’t feel your voice, or that of others like you, is heard?  Than stand for Diocesan synod!!  We at Keston Church are allowed two Diocesan Synod representatives to join the Orpington Deanery meetings, and if you are interested in joining, Pat Geiger our Representative of many years, can  explain a little more about being a representative.

People may be right in their own eyes,
 but the Lord examines their heart.      
Proverbs 20:  2

No Jesus, no peace;  know Jesus, know peace!





The Keston Prayer
Merciful God, as we trust in your love;
Increase our faith, feed us with your word and strengthen us
for service.  Bless our community.  Make this place holy, to heal and transform all who come. 
In the precious name of Jesus our Saviour, Amen.
