Xmas Factor

I woke up early this morning singing "there can be miracles when you believe" and with my head buzzing following last night's Xmas Factor! It was an amazing evening , and once again I was blown away with the standard and quality of what we put on as a Church. For my part it's fantastic to be involved with Simon at the end as we talk about God's dream of having a relationship with each one of us. The pressure of being last, and of everyone else being so good definitely gets the adrenaline going!It was also nerve-racking being filmed singing (and whistling!) and then being criticised by those fierce judges, but it seems to give people a good laugh! The creative and technical teams have done an incredible job. The music; singing; performances and arrangements were truly outstanding.
What I love too is the experience we give the school children who come to sing - we treat them really well and "big them up" throughout the event - especially now that we have the "applause meter" too! It's just so great to play a part in making them feel good both about themselves and their contribution to the event.
I spoke to many people who were in our building and at one of our events for the very first time; and overwhelmingly they were enthusiastic and very positive about the evening. The interesting thing too is that people were watching and noticing not just the quality of what we put on but also our attitudes as we all served together to park and greet and welcome.
If you haven't yet been to Xmas Factor then don't miss your last chance next Sunday evening - bring your friends too - you won't be disappointed!

I Have Decided To Follow Jesus, No Turning Back

I have decided to follow Jesus...no 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 …
