Notes and Reminders

Today's the final day for buying Real tickets at the earlybird rate - come and catch us in the Kerith reception at the Sunday meetings. You can also book online.
At 7pm tonight we will be joined by the Canadian drama group who'll be putting on a play called "Unlikely Heroes", which will include the youth drama team and takes a look at some of the unlikely heroes in the Bible.

Just a reminder that there are still some places available for the Fourteen Day Retreat this Tuesday 3rd May. So check out the details and contact Elizabeth if you'd like to join them. Think about any of your friends who might also benefit from the day.

I'm off to Serenje at the end of May. This time the focus will be on developing the links between our local schools here and those in Serenje, so we're taking out some teachers (including my boss!). Please do pray for our preparations; and for those coordinating the trip; and for the community in Serenje. Perhaps you could find some time over this weekend to write a letter to a woman in Serenje. Read some guidelines here. If you've previously written to a woman in Serenje, please write to her; otherwise a general letter to another woman would be great. We're collecting them in at Kerith reception.

And lastly, for what it's worth - I loved watching the Royal Wedding! I watched it live and I watched the highlights. I also bought a paper with a souvenir wedding supplement full of beautiful photographs. It was so lovely.

Guest Blog: Esther in Indonesia

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 for myself what had …

3 Little Bottles

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't recommend i…

Paula's Encouragement

I love a podcast!
Podcasts get me through situations where time might drag, or perhaps I've got some time to myself - I'm think a bike work-out at the Gym; a long car journey; or food for my mind and soul whilst I'm cooking.

I've just got back from holiday, and having missed a couple of Sundays, I have caught up with Kerith podcasts, listening to three outstanding preaches from Ben Pocock and Ben Oliver in Bracknell; and Heather Pocock in Sandhurst - I found myself wanting to join in with a few loud "amens" this morning at the gym!

What about you? Let me know when and where do you listen to podcasts?

Our guest contributor today is the wonderful Paula Ridgway - with her large heart , great enthusiasm and infectious faith, she is such a huge blessing to many at Kerith. 
Over to Paula for her encouragement to simply gather a few friends, to listen to a podcast together and then talk about it and see what God is saying. 

"Podcasts are great if one misses out on a …
