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.

Thank you for your donations.

As a face is reflected in water,
So the heart reflects the real person.
Proverbs 27:  19

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.
