Welcome

We hope browsing through this website will give you a warm welcome to our church community here in South Kenton.  Enjoy! Why not plan to pay us a visit. It will be great to see you.

We are now open each Sunday at 10.00am 
In line with updated government guidance we are beginning to relax some of our Covid 19 measures. But in order to help people feel relaxed and safe we will continue with social distancing and the use of hand sanitiser. We will wear a mask in church when moving around. But once seated people are free to remove their masks. We can now sing together! This will be a real joy! There will be beverages and chat afterwards from 11.00am onwards.

Our Sunday services continue to be available online. Just click on the 'virtual services' button below as usual.

Sundays at 10.00am...

Each week...

We meet together to celebrate our faith, encourage each other, share a simple commemoration of Jesus gift of his life for his creation in bread and wine, and pray for our community and our world.

There is Junior Church for children 3 - 10 years  as well as  a creche area at the back of the church and you are welcome to use it and sit with your children there and still enjoy the service, if you need to.

Sasha & Jacqui look forward to welcoming you.

With the current situation we haven't been able to offer Junior church just now. Children are welcome to sit with their parents and we keep the service with a comfortable level of informality. They are welcome to bring books and quiet activities. Please help them to join in as much as they can. We hope to start up again in September.

Do join us as we explore the life of Jesus and his actions and ask ourselves what they can mean for us today.

We will continue to accommodate social distancing and encourage the wearing of masks while moving around inside so that our more vulnerable members and visitors continue to feel safe and free to come and join us in worship. But now we will take our masks off when sitting down and we will be free to sing together. 
 

Would you like to belong to a church community but don't really know where to start? 
Why not pop along to one of our once a month coffee mornings or join us after church from around 11.00am for a cuppa and a chat in the church hall? You pop into the church and see what it's like. We're really happy to chat with you about the church and our faith. You can also view our current services on line (see above). know that you'll always receive a warm welcome.
Looking forward to meeting you.

A prayer for the people of Grenfell & all in a place of loss due to the current pandemic...

Father of all... We remember the friends, family and neighbours, who continue to feel so keenly the loss of loved ones as a result of the Grenfell Tower fire. We also add to this the many, many families facing loss because of the global pandemic we are all facing at this time.
 
we are thankful that Jesus did not run away from pain and disaster - his own or those around him. Jesus, because you faced everything we face we know that you understand what loss and all the pain that goes with it feels like. Be with everyone on their individual journey, bring them your peace where there are no answers and may your love soothe every area of pain they are experiencing and the hope of a brighter tomorrow. 
 
We ask that in the words of Corrie Ten Boom, they would 'never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.' Amen.

Trusting God in difficult times.jpg

Lots of questions about the Christian faith?...about prayer, what difference faith makes, and where Jesus Christ fits with it all? Or just feel like you've been round the block with it all already and need a fresh injection of inspiration and enthusiasm?

 

This slot will be updated once a term with a short film that explores what makes the Christian faith something worth taking a fresh look at - whether you consider yourself a Christian or not.

As we settle into 2021 Pastor Tim Keller, who is currently walking through his own personally difficult times with cancer,  shares with us some of his reflections about trusting God in the difficult times. He uses Psalm 46 in sharing some thoughts to meditate on, in this short time.  Our prayer is that this is inspirational to you wherever you are or aren't on your faith journey. May you find inspiration for your journey today.

 

Just click on the brown button Tim Keller: Trusting God in the difficult times to enjoy this talk. If you need to ask questions about what you watch and hear in this clip feel free to contact us by clicking on the 'contact us' button and we'll respond. God bless .
