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

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

Meeting my Hero

Yesterday, I met one of my heroes! Bobbie Houston of Hillsong is a beautiful woman! I love her teachings, her godly wisdom, her self deprecating humour. I love the way she leads the whole Colour conference and Sisterhood movement. I listen to her podcasts and read her articles and books. Here at the Global Leadership Summit in Willow Creek,Chicago, her husband Brian gave the most extraordinary, vulnerable and honest responses to Bill Hybel's interview ( notes here) He was signing books at the end of the break and as I turned a corner, there she was! Not being mobbed by fans, but just chatting with a couple of people. Not sure if many of you realise this, but I'm actually an introvert, and quite shy. No really, I am! There's no way I would confidently walk up to someone I admire and begin a conversation! So I walked away. But as I was walking, I thought about how much I'd regret not being brave enough to say Hi..or to thank her for her
