"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

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 …
