The Lyfe Group are changing their meeting day to a Wednesday

Church Council

Eleanor Barker has now retired from the Church Council. We are all very grateful for all the service she has given to the Church over the years both as a serving elder and member of the Church Council as well as running Coffee & Chat. She has been an absolute star!

We now welcome Marge Espinet to the Church Council. In the past, Marge has been a serving Church elder and we are very pleased that she has agreed to join the Church Council.

Bike Race - 29 July

The annual bike race will be held in Elmbridge on Sunday 29 July. As most of the roads around the Church will be closed that day, we are cancelling that morning's service. We recommend that you go to a service near to your home on that day.

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.
