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.

African sky

I'm writing this in the eerie light of Monday afternoon - anyone else noticed the yellow-tinged sky? I'm reliably informed (thanks Jake!) that the high winds are picking up dust particles from Liberia and North Africa, turning our sky a yellowish colour and definitely giving off an unusual atmosphere! Kind of intriguing too, as we are about to leave for a 10 day trip to Zambia this evening! We're flying overnight, and when we get there temperatures are high 90s - I have no idea how I'm going to cope with that at all...so I'm not even thinking about it right now! 
We'll stay a few days in Lusaka, visiting Sam and Hannah Fairs-Billam and their girls;  and Tehila, the charity they run, Then it's a 5 hour journey North to reconnect with the pastors and families in Serenje, and visit the Dormitory to meet the girls. 
Please do pray for us - safety and good health, pray for our families, pray that everywhere we go we take people up in their lift! (If like me you…

It'll All Be Over Soon...don't miss it!

Well the time is flying isnt it? (or is that just me?)
Ready or not, 2017 is coming to an end and Christmas is fast approaching.


Every. Single. Year. I declare "This is the Christmas I'm going to be calm / spend less / really feel ready and at peace / have time for people / feel close to Jesus and hear His voice / have time and space to enjoy the run-up...and so on (sound familiar anyone?)

Anyone else secretly echoing this top's sentiments in their thoughts?!?!

I'm not an earlybird, or the most organised - and get this, right now I can't find my little Christmas notebook - you know, the one with the last last 4 years of presents given and received listed - anywhere!!!! If you heard Simon preach on Sunday you'll know this is driving me mad!

I'd really love to hear your tips for enjoying and flourishing during this season. We don't' want to just "survive it" do we!
Here are a few of mine.

Make my money go further
First thing to say is to set a limi…

Hello again :)

Long time no see!!!!
What to talk about after so long an absence?!?!

I've had so many wonderful experiences and opportunities recently, and so I can't wait to tell you the stories of my travel to support women's conferences in Albania and Macedonia. 

God was so good to us, and it was such a privilege to travel there with our wonderful Kerith women, to pray for the Balkan women and to stand alongside them as their sisters, encouraging them in their faith. 
We had adventures; new experiences; thunder storms and sunshine; lost luggage and unexpected gifts. We saw salvations and re-commitments; we prayed for women of all ages and backgrounds; some of us were more successful at mastering the language than others, but we had a go! We sang worship songs in a mixture of "have-a-go-Albanian" and the few English lines we could remember (and just kept repeating them!) 
We gave away what we had in terms of our faith and trust in God. We know that we received so much from being th…
