Prayer

“When you come before God, don't turn that into a theatrical production either. All these people making a regular show out of their prayers, hoping for stardom! Do you think God sits in a box seat? Here's what I want you to do: Find a quiet, secluded place so you won't be tempted to role-play before God. Just be there as simply and honestly as you can manage. The focus will shift from you to God, and you will begin to sense his grace.” - Matthew 6:5-6 (The Message)

It's Prayer meetings this week at Kerith - a great chance for the church to gather together, share communion and pray. Prayer's a funny thing - so votal to our Christian lives, so essential to growing our relationship with Jesus and yet...it rarely feels easy...its sometimes hard to keep praying. That's one of the great advantages of coming to pray with others.

But we need to pray. I need to pray - for the Holy Spirit to help me be more like Jesus; for my family, friends, relationships; for my work and for our Church and all the people and ministries that are encompassed in that 6 letter word! I need to find that space and time to pray, so that the focus shifts from me to god...and I begin to sense His grace.

Real has, of course been in my prayers...and the fantastic women who have booked in have been in my prayers...but with only 17 days to go, I'm praying more!!! I want all our plans to come together .I really want loads of women to come, and for God to speak through us and make the conference such a significant, momorable and life-changing moment for all the women.

So I'm personally praying at home and also as I walk the dog and walk to work :)
But we'll also be taking a short time at this week's prayer meetings to pray for Real - so if you are able to join us, that would be just great as TOGETHER we ask for God's blessing, guidance and help.

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 …
