Additional Announcements

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.

It has been decided that we would hold a series of Joint Evening Services with Connor as follows:
Sunday 25th February at 6.30 pm in Kells
Sunday 29th April at 6.30 pm in Connor
Sunday 27th May at 6.30 pm in Kells
These are in addition to Christmas Day at 10.30 am in Kells and Good Friday (30th March) at 8 pm in Connor

Everyone is warmly invited to attend these

Ballymena Presbytery has asked sister congregations to support the small congregation of Glenarm. This support is to be shown by sending a small number of people on a given Sunday to attend the service in Glenarm. Sunday 11th February is the date allocated to Kells. If you would like to attend the service in Glenarm next Sunday at 11 am please speak to James Irons today.

If you have signed a Gift Aid declaration some time ago and your circumstances have changed e.g. you are no longer paying tax, it is important that you let William McNeilly know as soon as possible, as Kells Church would not be entitled to claim the tax rebate on your contributions. If you are a tax payer or have just become one, or have recently joined Kells and have not signed a Gift Aid declaration, perhaps you would consider doing so. Please speak to William McNeilly or any committee member.
