"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

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…

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…
