Good Friday

So today is Good Friday - and it's a beautiful day today. This morning felt so quiet and peaceful - hearing the birds sing as I hung out the washing and put together some little easter gifts, did a few chores, decorated the kitchen dresser with brightly coloured eggs, then enjoyed eating a hot cross bun sitting in the garden! (By the way, this wasn't particularly early...no-one else was up to look after..and I wasn't yet dressed!) I enjoy a bit of "fussing" for a celebration - including my Easter napkins, that "someone" in the family rolls his eyes at!
Later today we'll be at Kerith for the 2pm showing of "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" Narnia film. It should be fun to watch it together - don't forget the sweets! By the way, it's free! Great news that we have also arranged to show the film on a second screen with subtitles .
Later, we may as a family try for the traditional fish and chips :) Then it's back to Kerith for the 7pm Good Friday meeting "In the Shadow of the Cross". For those of us used to the way we usually do things at Kerith, it's going to be a bit differeent! Based on a traditional format, we'll be hearing readings and reflections; and we'll be quiet and contemplative. There's also the opportunity to share communion together, which I think will be really meaningful. It will be an hour to reflect on the death of Jesus, and I think it's going to be a very powerful time. It will also prepare us brilliantly for the Easter Sunday celebrations at 9, 11 and 7 , when we celebrate "In the Light of the Resurrection". Jesus died, rose again and He's alive - and He did all this beacuse He loves us - because He loves you.

That's Real Love

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 …
