Treasure

Where to start? We had a great weekend at Butlins Bognor Regis , helping out with the Youth event. Lee, Zoe and the Youth band were FANTASTIC - it was such a privilege to see what went on and to be part of it all as we prayed for the young people. We had fun with friends and family; the children loved the swimming pool, the amusements and the dodgems. Great food - and they even had lattes!

But the biggest thrill (and greatest challenge) was to see young people worship and be so responsive to the gospel. Their honesty and lack of pride as they came forward for prayer , was a powerful challenge to me for when I can so often be hard hearted, proud and independent.

Our youth band were terrific, we were so proud of them as they led us all in worshipping Jesus. One memorable song for me was "This is Life" with the chorus:
Treasures come and treasures can go in a moment
But Jesus You're eternally mine
You are all that I need
You are all that satisfies me
What can the world offer now?
This is life, this is hope I am free

Amazing truth for you, for me; for today and for tomorrow.

Thanks to all at Kerith for your excellent service to the youth last weekend.My daughter who's 12 loved her time in the youth meetings at Butlins.God moved mightily in her.She went forward for prayer twice (something she's never done before)and is asking to be baptized.The song you quoted was her favourite,though she's been singing all of them.(She loves Ethos and hopes they will release a c.d)

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 …
