It's that time of year again, Shravan Vad Atham on Saturday 5th September. Come and join us to celebrate the birth of Shree Krishna. Let us all enjoy the night by playing raas and dandia raas.

3 Peaks Challenge - 29th & 30th August 2015
The youth of SKSST Kenton Harrow have decided to embark on a mission to raise vital funds for both the local and global community. How? Over the August Bank Holiday, the team will be climbing the 3 highest peaks in the UK, which includes walking for 24 miles, ascending up to 10,000 feet and travelling all over the UK... all in 24 hours! The mental and physical challenge they will face is just an ounce of what those under the care of our chosen causes, St Luke's Hospice, Harrow Mencap, Ashiana Charity Trust and Nepal, are going through.
Your donations will make a huge difference to the lives of many and will help rebuild and make easier the lives of those who are suffering. Your donations can help make a difference one step at a time and reach our goal. Whilst our target is £25,000, our goal is to deliver something even greater... to create a lasting legacy.

Chaturmaas: July - November 2015

Chaturmaas begins on this day and ends on Prabhodhini Ekadashi in the month of Kartik. "Chatur" meaning four and "Maas" means months, thus it is a period of four auspicious (blessed) months.
According to the Purans, from this day onwards Lord Vishnu takes rest in Kshir Sagar (ocean of milk) instead of Vaikunt. It is said that when a devotee observes severe austerities and penance related to God during these months, they will become free from all sins and achieve indescribable merits...
