We are very conscious of the large number of people who have lost loved ones in recent months. To try to help we plan to run a short series of evenings in the Autumn for those coping with grief. These meetings will take place on 5 Thursday evenings beginning on Thursday 13th September. If you would be interested in attending, please speak to Rev Boyd who can give you further details.

The Kirk Session Conference will be held on Saturday 15th September. This year we would like to invite some leaders of our organisations to attend and share with us.  A letter giving details and a booking form will be sent to each organisation shortly. It is the Session’s desire that we should have a day of fellowship and learning together.

A number of helpers from Kells Church will be assisting at the Dublin Family Outreach (Billy Swann) camp in July at Drewstown.  In this regard we plan to take down foodstuffs for camp such as tea, coffee, pasta, tinned foods, cereals etc and will be leaving a box in the vestibule for this over the next two weeks. Should anyone wish to make a gift to buy food this would also be greatly appreciated. Any queries please speak to Brian Turtle

 We are hoping to have a few Sunday evening gatherings in the Church hall over the summer while there are no evening services.  Just an opportunity to spend time together as a Church family; praising God, talking about his word, praying together and fellowshipping together.  The proposed dates are 22nd July, 5th August and 19th August.  All will be welcome to join us
