Children's Christmas Eve Candlelight service at 6pm
The Children's Christmas Eve Candlelight service is always a magical time when the wonder of Christ's nativity is once more told for the young and not so young. Do come along whether you have children with you or not. At a time like this, we can all be filled with child-like wonder as we hear the old, familiar story
Soup & Roll Lunch
On Wednesday 3 January we will be having our new year's Soup & Roll Lunch. It is a good time to invite friends and neighbours as we welcome in the new year. Put the date in your diaries.
Burns Night Supper
Wherever Scots are in the world, they gather to celebrate the birthday of the famous Scottish writer Robbie Burns, and we too will be celebrating the occasion. His official birthday is on 25 January but this year we will be holding our Burns Night Supper celebration on Saturday 27 January 7 for 7.30pm. The haggis will be addressed, the Lassies toasted, the pipes played and a lively evening will be had by all! Do come and join in the fun! There are only 50 places available so please let Linda Lambert know as soon as you can if you would like to attend. The cost is £20 per head.
Joint Service with St Nicholas
Please note that the service on January 21st will be a joint service at St. Nicholas at the new time of 11.15 am followed by a bring and share lunch, if you would like to stay. This will be a great way for us to get to know the congregation at St. Nicholas.

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.
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.
