Nancy Beach Seminar

Well, the 3 Sunday meetings went fantastically well - God was with us; and the tremendous effort and planning of many hard working people really paid off. There were first time visitors at all our meetings; and there was a real buzz - it was fun to see people chatting and connecting as they came and went between the 2 morning meetings. The evening was a great experience - I thoroughly recommend getting there early for the lattes and the hot chocolates :) The brilliant thing is This Is It now - we get to do it all over again this week! For the record I helped in creche at 11 , so only got to hear Simon preach twice - both great!

Nancy Beach is from Willow Creek Church in Chicago. She is coming over to the UK at the end of this month with her seminar "Gifted to Lead - Women in Leadership". (More information about Nancy Beach's seminars in the UK here). She is a great speaker - I had the privilege of hearing her twice last year. I'm going to Battersea on Saturday 31st January. If you'd like to come, I'll be booking tickets on Friday at 9a.m to take advantage of the combined earlybird and WCA member rate of £25. If you'd like to come please email me asap and also let me have your money asap please :) Tickets can also be booked after Friday at £30. If you can't make Saturday Lydia is travelling to Bristol on 28th Jan so email her if you'd like to go then.

Guest Blog: Esther in Indonesia

I'm delighted to welcome Esther Ross-Watson to my Blog today! She is a dearly loved member of our Kerith family. She and her late husband Michael served as missionaries for many years. Esther bravely made the decision to travel again, and she has recently returned from Indonesia. Here's her story:  Whilst Michael was on his last days on earth in August 2017 he received a request from the Island of Madura, Indonesia asking us to return to the town of Pamekasen, Madura, Indonesia where we had begun our Missions work in July 1973 exactly one year after we were married. They were keen to have us see what God had been doing in the years since we’d moved on and we excitedly said ‘Yes’ we will come!   Obviously that had to go on hold for a while because I didn’t feel I could, or even wanted to go alone! Anyway around March/April time 2018, I begun to feel a gentle nudging of the Holy Spirit urging me to think some more about it! It was like a feeling of wanting to know

3 Little Bottles

Thought I'd mix it up today and do something lighthearted here. I popped into town this morning (as an aside, anyone else still incredulous that "new Bracknell / The Lexicon is so great and that it's really here to stay?!)  Anyhow, I popped into town for a quick wander and bought 3 "essentials" I'd run out of, so I thought I'd share them with you - and of course I'd love to hear about your 3 recent essential purchases. 1 Contact lense solution I've worn glasses since Secondary school, and contact lenses since I left Uni. Gas permeables - great for me - slightly perilous in swimming pools / the sea / other people's sinks (£80 to replace). They work for me - and so a couple of bottles of solution each month keep me going.I ran out a couple of days ago, so it was £4.70 well spent for clean lenses and clear eyesight. 2. "Buffet" by The Ordinary This was a new one for me, a present I received last Christmas. I LOVE it and can

Meeting my Hero

Yesterday, I met one of my heroes! Bobbie Houston of Hillsong is a beautiful woman! I love her teachings, her godly wisdom, her self deprecating humour. I love the way she leads the whole Colour conference and Sisterhood movement. I listen to her podcasts and read her articles and books. Here at the Global Leadership Summit in Willow Creek,Chicago, her husband Brian gave the most extraordinary, vulnerable and honest responses to Bill Hybel's interview ( notes here) He was signing books at the end of the break and as I turned a corner, there she was! Not being mobbed by fans, but just chatting with a couple of people. Not sure if many of you realise this, but I'm actually an introvert, and quite shy. No really, I am! There's no way I would confidently walk up to someone I admire and begin a conversation! So I walked away. But as I was walking, I thought about how much I'd regret not being brave enough to say Hi..or to thank her for her
