2018 CWO envelopes are now ready for collection on the coffee dock. We thank you warmly for all your contributions to the Lord’s work in 2017.
We provide the following facilities on a Sunday to help parents:
- Crèche for babies up to age 3 in minor hall
- Senior Crèche for age 3 to P1 in main hall
- ChurchZone for P2 to P5. Children leave the Church service after the offering.
- P6 and above remain in Church
It is very important that these age groups are observed especially with regards to crèche. It can be quite dangerous for babies to have older children running around them.
Copies of Debbie Simpson’s latest prayer letter are available today

This year we are hoping to renew our TIMESHARE organisation, which for various reasons over the past years, has become a little run down. TIMESHARE is where we couple volunteers in our congregation, with an elderly or shut in person in our church, and ask that you would visit or contact them once a month in your own time. We are really needing new volunteers as well as our already faithful ones who do a great job. We also need both male and female. If you feel you would like to hear more about how you can serve God in this way, please come to our TIMESHARE MEETING ON Wednesday 24th January at 9 pm
Kells Youth will recommence on Friday 19th January at 7.30 – 9.30pm

Q28 What does it profit us top know that God has created and by His providence still upholds all things?
Ans: That we may be patient in adversity; thankful in prosperity; and for what is future, have good confidence in our faithful God and Father, that no creature shall separate us from His love; since all creatures are so in His hand, that without His will they cannot so much as move.
