Lisa's Reading the Bible Tip

I love being at all three meetings each week at Church - one really exciting aspect is that it is such a great opportunity to meet new people and chat with others - to find about about the amazing people who are part of Kerith. Well this Sunday one of my chats was with Ida, who is a lovely Albanian girl (you may have heard her personal story at the 7pm the weeek before?) - we found a shared interest in and passion for coffee shops, and especially those that also serve cakes and cupcakes! I recommended Hummingbird and she enthused about Pattiserie Valerie :) To be honest with you I wasn't feeling that well on Sunday, but I'm so glad I was there!Another great chat was with Lisa - as she talked to me her face lit up and you could see that she was genuinely excited about reading the Bible. I was so encouraged by what she shared about reading her Bible that I asked her to write it down and send it in as a guest blogger. so here's her recent experience - be encouraged- and maybe follow her tip too!

"I was fortunate enough to attend the 'come as you are' conference where I came across the "Too busy not to pray" book by Bill Hybels. I have become inspired to read my Bible daily and here's why, a suggestion from Bill is to keep a brief journal writing down the days experiences, observations and reflections. This not only slows us down in our hectic lifestyle but it gives me the opportunity to pray and listen to God more easily. I have found that since writing things down and reading them back I can see a different perspective of daily situations that I couldn't see at the time and hear what God has to say about them. I then highlight sentences that seem to stand out to me then look them up in the Bible, its amazing how God can speak to us through his book that was written so long ago and yet its so appropriate today. I then pray and feel uplifted by his word. I have found the Bible so much more exciting since reading it this way. Why not try this too?"

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 …
