"Come with me by yourself to a quiet place and rest a while"

"Come with me by yourself to a quiet place and rest a while". Mark 6:31
This Spring we are continuing to run a number of one day retreats called 'Fourteen'.

Come and spend a special time of reflection in a quiet and supportive environment with the added bonus of lunch prepared for you.
This is a day for you - time for rest and enjoyment, for personal reflection and prayer.

Here's your personal invitation from Elizabeth and Melita - Fourteen's wonderful leaders. Keep reading to the end of the invitation for details of how to find out more information and make a booking. You can also pick up a beautiful flyer (including dates) from Kerith reception.

Hello Everyone
This Spring, we are pleased to let you know that we’ve planned some new dates for FOURTEEN – days when you can enjoy some time out for yourself and God.  For those who have been before we thought we’d experiment with something extra -read on dear friends!
We have chosen dates on different days this time around which will hopefully make it easier for some of you – we have also included a Saturday
The Saturday is going to be extra special –anticipating more demand for this date we’ve doubled the number of places and Catrina Benham is going to speak before the first session. I’m really looking forward to hearing her wisdom as she talks about resting in God.

EXTRA HELPINGS!!!
Once you’ve been to FOURTEEN and know the ropes you are welcome to book in for our extra days which we are calling
14 PLUS. These days will be a little different and will mean you have more time for yourself. We will gather for a drink as you arrive and after a short time of prayer you will be free to disperse to your quiet place. Bring a packed lunch which you can eat with others or continue in quietness as you choose.
We will end the day with some prayer at 3.30 pm but feel free to leave earlier if you need to.

There will be a mix of resources available for you to dip into for both FOURTEEN and 14PLUS. As the year warms up we will be able to use the garden again but on colder days the house will be available for places to relax.

We’re really looking forward to welcoming you soon- and one last thing please feel free to book into as many FOURTEEN and /or 14PLUS days as you like!
With Love,  Elizabeth and Melita

African sky

I'm writing this in the eerie light of Monday afternoon - anyone else noticed the yellow-tinged sky? I'm reliably informed (thanks Jake!) that the high winds are picking up dust particles from Liberia and North Africa, turning our sky a yellowish colour and definitely giving off an unusual atmosphere! Kind of intriguing too, as we are about to leave for a 10 day trip to Zambia this evening! We're flying overnight, and when we get there temperatures are high 90s - I have no idea how I'm going to cope with that at all...so I'm not even thinking about it right now! 
We'll stay a few days in Lusaka, visiting Sam and Hannah Fairs-Billam and their girls;  and Tehila, the charity they run, Then it's a 5 hour journey North to reconnect with the pastors and families in Serenje, and visit the Dormitory to meet the girls. 
Please do pray for us - safety and good health, pray for our families, pray that everywhere we go we take people up in their lift! (If like me you…

Not the Summer I'd Planned

"Life's detours means  God wants you to run right into His arms  so He can reconstruct your heart"  Ann Voskamp
Well, let's just say that it's not been the summer I thought I was going to have!!! 
I'm so grateful we had our relaxing holiday in the sunshine
I'm so grateful it's summer time, and therefore not so many work commitments
I'm so grateful for my family being around
I'm so grateful for a wonderful and kind church family

If I was going to have an accident ...to slip over on the back door mat....in my wedges...feeding the dogs.. and dislocate and fracture my ankle...then I'm so glad I was at home with family around and with access to swift expert medical help.

The accident was so sudden and it was immediately obvious that I couldn't sort it on my own! I'm pretty squeamish so I'll save you the details, but the angle of my foot prompted me to say out loud "I've just done something really bad".

Funny isn't it, when yo…

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 …
