St Leonard’s Bell Ringers

When the bells were first hung at Heston, it was a ring of 6, mounted on plain bearings in a wooden frame. In 1856, these bells were recast. In 1908, two trebles were added, to make it a ring of 8 and to complete the octave. At some time during the early 1930s, the wooden frame was replaced by a metal one and the plain bearings were replaced by ball bearings. No other major work was carried out on the bells themselves until 1986, when it was decided that a crack in one of the cannons on the Forth warranted the attention of a bell foundry. When the bells were re-hung, the Second was chosen in honour of the 1st/2nd Heston Scouts, who had raised a substantial amount of money for the bell restoration.

St Leonard’s Sunday School

21st June 2015

Trinity 3


What can we claim in the real difference between Christian and non-Christian life style.

It's not only that Christians have an inner joy based on peace with God, or that they know their sins are forgiven and that they are going to heaven. It's something even more than this: Love is the word which lies at the very centre of this difference. True Christian love is different to any love we find in the world around us. Why is this so? - simply because it knows absolutely no boundaries, or prejudice. The origin of this radical, all embracing love is the very teaching of the Lord himself. "Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you; pray for those who treat you spitefully ..." What a complete thunderbolt through the world values. It is surely the easiest thing in the world to love those who love us, those we feel safe with. Even non-Christians do that. We are in fact called to go much, much farther and to love even our enemies. No one has ever said it is easy ... But God appreciates and acknowledges all the efforts, no matter how small that we make to live in the way that he intended.
