Last year, as we focused on launching, maintaining and growing our 3 Sunday meetings at Kerith, we took a break from organising much in the way of other large events. However, that was so last year! This year we have the Real Conference to look forward to, and we also have 2 large events planned for you this Spring - look out this year for the
events...What we really want is to spend time together as women having fun, encouraging one another - and doing a variety of things (I like variety - even on walks and in coffee shops!).
On March 19th there's a "Simply Worship and Word" evening planned (more details soon). But first...and with tickets available from the Kerith reception and also every Sunday...we proudly announce...
It's going to be a great evening! Ruth is organising this event, and she's got a fab team including the best quiz-master in town, and some great men to cook for us! Come on your own or in pairs, 3's etc and we'll get you in a team, or come as a team of 7! This is a brilliant event to bring friends, sisters, colleagues, neighbours, new people etc. It's a great evening to spend time with old friends and make new friends . It's just going to be FUN (and competitive?!) so get inviting, get planning, and get your tickets! Keep up to date with the Simply Quiz on the Kerith website and on the Simply Quiz Facebook page.

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
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
