KESTON WI  are holding a coffee morning at the Village Hall, Wednesday 8th May, 10 am – 12 noon.      Pre-loved books and DVD’s, crafts, raffle and cakes. Entrance £3 to include a coffee and a slice of cake.

CHRISTIAN AID WEEK – 12TH – 18TH MAY – I do hope we will be able to help this Charity again this year, please see Tricia if you can help in any way.  Thank you all for raising over £1,000 last year!

NEXT DATE FOR BOOK READING FELLOWSHIP – Please come along to Sally Churchus home @ 103 Gravel Road on Monday 13TH May @ 2 pm to  discuss books with some Christian content, either from the church library or your own.

PUB SOCIALS – Our next Pub social will be @ 7.30 pm on Tuesday 14th May at the Crown. Please do come along for a meal, or just a couple of drinks  – all are very welcome!

MEN’S PUB SOCIAL – These happen every 3rd Wednesday of the month – and the next one is 15th May & 19th June at the Greyhound Pub @ 7.30 pm.

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 on 19th May & 16th June.

MEDITATION GROUP – Every 3rd Monday  - 20th May & 17th June.  We begin at 7.30 pm in the Church or church hall.  All are very welcome, to take time out from our busy lives 

MESSY CHURCH – Tuesday 21st May at 3.30 – 6 pm.  Come along for lots of fun and crafts, followed by a short act of worship in church, then finishing with a High Tea.  Free admission, but donations towards costs much appreciated.

NEW PATTERN OF WORSHIP – We will begin this new pattern on Sunday 2nd June - First Sunday in the month: an ‘All Age’ Communion service at the 10.00 am service, still shorter and child friendly!  (This means we will no longer have a BCP Communion Service at 8.00 am).  First Tuesday (4th June): prayer walk.  9.30 am - with opportunity to gather for a ‘cuppa’ afterwards in the village.  Second Wednesday of the month (12th June): mid-week BCP Communion at 10.30 am.  Third Monday of the month (17th June):  Meditation at 7.30 pm.  Fourth Tuesday (25th June):  Home Group at the Rectory. 7.30 pm

HELP PLEASE – A few generous members of our Church have been purchasing the wine for Communion,  coffee & tea for use at Church services, and socials.  If you feel you can purchase a tin of coffee,  box of tea, or  bottle of British fortified wine – the Church would be most grateful. 

ALL SAFEGUARDING INFORMATION & PUBLICATIONS are displayed on the centre Notice Board in the foyer.

PRAY TOGETHER @ 9 AM BEFORE THE SUNDAY 10 AM SERVICE – Many Churches have a prayer time before the Sunday Service, and Carol would like to encourage anyone to come up to Church at about 9 am to pray with her.  This should only take 10 minutes.


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.
