Simply Word and Worship

If you've missed the Unique Breakfasts, and the opportunity they created to gather together as women,  you'll love this!   Word and Worship is an evening Unique event for all Kerith women . On Saturday 19th March at 7.30pm in the Kerith Centre. So, it's pretty much "what it says on the tin" - with the focus on us women gathering together, worshipping and hearing some Bible-based teaching. There'll be more information about the Real Conference, and  the opportunity to register for the conference that evening. The beautiful Real invites will be available for you to take to keep and also to pass onto friends. Also, we've still got some Rachel Hickson CDs for those of you that haven't yet had yours. For those of you who like to know what you're coming to, the format is half an hour of free time to mingle, chat, enjoy a cookie and a coffee or tea. Then we'll take our seats (in rows) to sing, listen, pray and simply be together! To cover costs,

Real 2011

So on Sunday we officially launched this year’s Real Conference for women! Information; beautiful invitations and also a free gift of a great Talk on a CD by one of our guest speakers Rachel Hickson, were all available at our information point in the reception area. Did you see the shoe display? There was a shoe on our display that would be just perfect for you – and there’s a place and a message, a defining moment at Real for you . Our message is that Real is for all women - whatever your age, background, or experience of Christianity. It's for you! Like you, I'm often asked "How was your week?" and I've realised that my response is not a minute by minute, hour by hour account of my week . We don’t measure our lives in minutes . Instead, I talk about the highs and lows of my week, because our lives are made up of a whole series of defining moments. Some larger than life moments . Most "moments" are the mundane stuff of our ordinary, everyday lives

Younger Women

So fantastic to hear God's heart for us through each of them. I listened to all 10..and it was exhausting just listening, being challenged and writing down the applications! So, I prayed for a women straight after the 11 meeting thanks to Beccy's encouragement to pray straightaway. Then on Tuesday I prayed for one of my children to enlarge their faith  - and Wednesday saw a real answer to that prayer. All of the talks are available on the Kerith website . They are all the kind of length you can listen to whilst chopping carrots, washing up , having a coffee break or taking a car journey - so have a listen God will speak to you.....then PRAY! I had the privilege of helping one of the teenage girls prepare for her preach - and was so proud of her. We must hear from the young women. We must let the young
