Felicity Lambert

There will be a blessing service for Mike and Linda Lambert's new granddaughter - Felicity Olivia Eloise Lambert - at the morning service of 1 March. Felicity is the daughter of Matt and Justyna Lambert. Some in the congregation will remember Matt being christened in the Church all those years ago so it is like the completion of a circle. Linda and Mike hope as many of you as possible will join them at this service

Dinner at the Marquis of Granby 19 February, 7 for 7.30pm

We are having our annual Church meal at the Marquis of Granby this year. It is always a good time for the congregation to come together, relax and enjoy each others' company. Do let Margaret Gatter know if you are planning to come.

Easter is coming!

The Church period of Lent starts this month. Shrove Tuesday when we traditionally have pancakes leads into Ash Wednesday when we begin our run up to Easter. It is a time of both highs and lows in Jesus' life and during this period we follow His path which led to the Cross and then that glorious Easter Day. This is a good time for reflection and thinking about our Lord and how we can more perfectly try to follow in His image.

Graham Ashton in the Himalayas

Graham Ashton is going to give an illustrated talk on his time trekking in the foothills of the Himalayas. It is a magical place and Graham will be our guide through the spectacular scenery of this fairly remote part of our world. It's 7 for 7.30. There will be refreshments. The cost is £8 and it should be a good evening. Do come!

Books, Books, Books!

Our book trolley seems to be a success and the sales have added to our collection for “extras” in the foyer and in the kitchen. Thank you all for contributing by bringing in such a wide variety of subject matter and for buying ones to read. One request: please put new contributions into the large cupboard at the far end of the foyer, not straight onto the shelves. This is so that I can price them first. Some will be held for a while so that there is as wide a selection as possible all that he time.
Thank you. Margaret

Kingston Street Pastors

Kingston Street Pastors are looking for more people who would be interested in joining their group. Although the group is made up of Christians, they are not allowed to preach to the people they are helping. Instead they attest to Christian values by just being there to help people in need over the weekends – an act of witnessing that has proven to calm things down in Kingston and to keep young people particularly safer than they might be.

Before Church

Many people like to sit inside the church in quiet before the service begins. If you are in the foyer would you please try to speak more quietly so as not to disturb those already inside the church. Thank you.

Visits to the church at other times

Members of the church have been asked to confine visits to the church during term times until after 2pm on Mondays and Fridays, after 4pm on other weekdays, as the last Ofsted report expressed concern about non playgroup people coming into contact with the Teddies children who are here.
If for some reason you have to be at the church before those times, please go to the main door and catch the attention of one of the Teddies staff.
