Our God is Greater

Last night I went to the Top Secret practice for the Real Opener - it's going to be such a brilliant start to the conference - can't wait! (make sure you are there early on the Friday, as we'll need to shut the doors and won't be able to let women in whilst it's on)

At the same time in Kerith there was a meeting about the Rocknations event; the Parenting Course; and the Act For Justice group were meeting and praying against Human Trafficking! So glad to be part of a Church  that  showed just on one Tuesday evening that it's so committed to teenagers, to families, to justice. Praise God that he moves people's hearts to stand in the gap, to pray, to act, to serve and sacrifice for others. 

This is a brilliant faith-building song! Our God is Greater by Chris Tomlin.."and if our God is for us, then who could ever stop us?.and if our God is with us, then what can stand against?."

Thank you for continuing to pray for Real

22.06.11   Please pray for our events organiser, Sue Ranger, her team, Jo and Debbie, and all the Volunteers that will serve before and during Real.

If you’ve ever organised a wedding or a big party or event you’ll understand something of what this team has been doing for months, and what they will get done in the next 10 days and over the conference itself! Sue’s heart is to bless each individual woman coming to Real – to really enhance her experience of being at the conference so that she will get the most out of it, and be most able to receive from God.
Pray for health, protection, joy as they serve.
Pray for strength and Holy Spirit anointing on ALL the plans and preparations.
Please also remember to keep  praying  for   Numbers…more please!

Thank you for your prayers and encouragement yesterday
We prayed for the  Worship Band and Tech team…as they practiced the Opener and all the worship sets and performance items. Last night I had the privilege of watching a rehearsal, and it was fantastic -  the sound look and feel was such a high quality. Really excited to be opening the conference in such a way! I was also humbled by the whole team’s desire to work together using their gifts and keep going until they were happy with it.

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…

Our Living Hope

Not sure what happens with my blog...or me writing my blog! Can't believe I've been away from it for almost two months. Oh well, no condemnation! Let's pick it up and start again :)
Yesterday was a great day in Church! I was so challenged and encouraged - I love Sundays and all the different ways God shows His love and who he is to us. Natalie Jones preached at both our morning meetings in Bracknell , she gave such a good message on generosity, be sure to catch it when the podcast comes on our website, but for now, watch a summary of Natalie's preach
At the 6pm meeting, we had Paul Manwaring sharing about culture : the 4 Gamechangers - again, a really challenging message to check out if you didn't get to hear it live.

I wore my HOPE earrings yesterday - sometimes I deliberately choose to wear them as a practical symbol that I am choosing HOPE - that I choose Jesus, I choose trust, I choose hope.
I'm so glad I did, as throughout the day I felt God speak to me about …
