They went everywhere - daily in the temple and in every home and in the market - daily they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ…..Acts 8.4; 5.42; 17.17


Hi All Friends,

We will be holding a service of thanksgiving for our Dear Dad and the Rev. Leslie C Smith on Thursday 7th June at 2pm at Kingston Evangelical Church, Park Grove, Hull. HU5 2UR. It would be helpful if you could advise if you would be attending as it would help with seating and light refreshments.

We will have already had the internment prior to the service to enable us to meet you all and share fellowship at the thanksgiving service

You can either reply here by return email on the contact form or on Facebook if you use it or by phone call to my mobile +44 (0) 7413 553810

Love and Best wishes

Chris, Steve and David Smith and all family members
