"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…

It'll All Be Over Soon...don't miss it!

Well the time is flying isnt it? (or is that just me?)
Ready or not, 2017 is coming to an end and Christmas is fast approaching.


Every. Single. Year. I declare "This is the Christmas I'm going to be calm / spend less / really feel ready and at peace / have time for people / feel close to Jesus and hear His voice / have time and space to enjoy the run-up...and so on (sound familiar anyone?)

Anyone else secretly echoing this top's sentiments in their thoughts?!?!

I'm not an earlybird, or the most organised - and get this, right now I can't find my little Christmas notebook - you know, the one with the last last 4 years of presents given and received listed - anywhere!!!! If you heard Simon preach on Sunday you'll know this is driving me mad!

I'd really love to hear your tips for enjoying and flourishing during this season. We don't' want to just "survive it" do we!
Here are a few of mine.

Make my money go further
First thing to say is to set a limi…

Hello again :)

Long time no see!!!!
What to talk about after so long an absence?!?!

I've had so many wonderful experiences and opportunities recently, and so I can't wait to tell you the stories of my travel to support women's conferences in Albania and Macedonia. 

God was so good to us, and it was such a privilege to travel there with our wonderful Kerith women, to pray for the Balkan women and to stand alongside them as their sisters, encouraging them in their faith. 
We had adventures; new experiences; thunder storms and sunshine; lost luggage and unexpected gifts. We saw salvations and re-commitments; we prayed for women of all ages and backgrounds; some of us were more successful at mastering the language than others, but we had a go! We sang worship songs in a mixture of "have-a-go-Albanian" and the few English lines we could remember (and just kept repeating them!) 
We gave away what we had in terms of our faith and trust in God. We know that we received so much from being th…
