We provide the following facilities on a Sunday to help parents:

  1. Crèche for babies up to age 3 in minor hall
  2. Senior Crèche for age 3 to P1 in main hall
  3. ChurchZone for P2 to P5. Children leave the Church service after the offering.
  4. 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

FRESH START: 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
