Donations help us renew the old and broken
We have been blessed recently with donations from members of our congregation for specific items to be renewed. The entrance gates at the front of the church were in a desperate condition, especially the main double gates. Time had caught up with the once proud oak gates and no amount of repair was going to save them.
Fortunately, with a very generous donation, we have been able to commission a set of replacement iron gates detailed with our very own Keston cross. The new gates have replaced both the single entrance gate and the main double entrance gate.
We were also fortunate to receive another donation for the renewal of our large wooden road sign. The road sign had been lovingly amended and looked after over the years as different Rectors came and went. Each time, the details on the sign were changed with great care and attention.
Unfortunately, again, as with the oak gates, time got the better of the big old sign and it was beginning to show its age. This very generous donation has allowed us to re-imagine the road sign and do something a little less traditional and maybe a bit more current.
We do hope everyone feels that both the gates and the sign are an improvement.
It is with great sadness that we make this decision, but, hope you can agree that as a church we have a duty of care to each other and we do need to prioritise the welfare of ourselves, our congregation members and our families.
