My Very First Blog

Hi I'm Catrina Benham, I lead Unique Women@ Kerith. I'm married to Simon who leads Kerith Community Church in Bracknell. We have three children, Zak, Jacob and Alice.

This is my first ever blog!!! I'd love to use it to help women connect with both our church community and other women.There 'll be some information about what's going on and how you can get involved. Given that there is a home, work, a husband, children and pets in my life, there'll probably also be some funny stories and also some thoughts on finding God in our everyday lives.
The main news today is of our next Unique event:

Christmas (did I really say that?!) Action Morning

It's on Saturday 29th November in K2 (opposite the Kerith Centre) This is going to be a relaxed and informal morning, so please drop in anytime between 9 and 11.30 am.
It’s an “Action Morning”. The idea is that you come and make a difference to other's lives by giving a few moments of your time to some practical tasks that are going to bless our wider community.
Ticket money will cover the refreshments and also finance the projects that will bless others. We’re hoping to give you the gift of time in this busy season- to stop and take some time to think of others.

It’s also a great chance for you to recharge your batteries, so come and meet friends, enjoy drinks and cakes together, chat and catch up with our plans for Unique in 2009!
Tickets @£3 on sale from 16th November onwards at the Kerith Centre Reception. Come and find us at the Unique table at Church on Sundays 16th and 23rd November for more information. It'll be a different morning, but one that I know you'll really enjoy.

Thanks so much for reading this...more soon! love Catrina x

Hi Catrina,
this is a new start on a day of history for the whole world!
What a day to start your blog.
Barack Obama says "a change is gonna come". Well Christian women have been saying that for centuries! We can, we DO, make a difference.
Well done!

Hi Catrina
Like Catriona said a historic day!
I thought I'd leave a comment for 2 reasons; 1) to show that I've read your blog and think it's a great idea - why not! and 2) this will mean 3 comments already from your first blog... Simon must be worried!!

I Have Decided To Follow Jesus, No Turning Back

I have decided to follow turning back.Take a listen to this beautiful song from Hillsong - every time I hear these words and sing along it changes my perspective, turns me around, gets my focus off me and onto Jesus - "Christ Is Enough For Me". ...No turning back, I've been set free...Christ is enough for me.

Discover your Worth, your Strength, your Purpose

Following a successful Kerith launch in the Spring, Sarah Farley and her team are ready to go again,leading their 2nd SHINE course.
SHINE is an eight week self esteem course for women. The evenings are a mixture of Talks and discussion time, with a practical approach to learning. It's a really encouraging environment, and the evenings are a lot of fun. The course starts this Tuesday evening, and there are still some spaces available.Here's your personal invite from Sarah!Shine is about to run again and I'm excited to see what God is going to do this time round. If you haven't already heard, Shine is a course designed for women who want to live their life in abundance, the way God designed them to live it. To recognise all their worth, to grow in self-esteem, to see all their strengths and positives and ultimately live a life of purpose.We've still got a few places left so if you're interested there's more information here on the Kerith website, where you can…

It's been a while

So, I've been gone a while....and  I've been wondering about launching a new blog - perhaps a new look,a new blog, a totally new start? In the wondering I've done nothing, so instead, I'm just going to pick it up again, and start writing.... 
So this week I had the privilege of spending time with some Prayer warriors in the Kerith Prayer room. We gathered to pray for the upcoming Mission Trips to Albania and Macedonia.  - They did me such good, as they shared what God had been saying to them in their own prayer times - words of encouragement that He will bring restoration of relationships; He will bring healing ; there will be lots of new people who haven't been to UNIKE before; there'll be a fresh move of the Holy Spirit; somethingnewandmoreis going to happen this year; He is going to take things to another level. You can imagine how excited I was to hear these whispers from God - join me in a moment's prayer right now, that we'll see Him work?
It's …
