Why We Do It

I've been to two great events recently, both targeted at Kerith women and their friends. The first was the Activate evening event. The lovely book club ladies threw open the door to visitors, to discuss together Shauna Niequist's book, Bittersweet. I loved the discussions around favourite passages and themes. It was a fun evening, together with lovely women, in a beautiful setting with delicious food too! Check out Activate's plans and current book here, they'd love to see you at their next meeting on July 7th.
The other great event was the Simply Quiz this last weekend. What a fun night - I seriously contributed very little to my team, but it was still fun to be together, laugh, sing, eat fish and chips. Congratulations (and large boxes of chocolates) to the winning team "Lucky 7 Plus 1".  
Ruth Buxton organised the event, and she and her team  did a really brilliant job in all the admin and also in setting such a lovely atmosphere. 
Today we received this lovely thank you email

Dear  Catrina
Just wanted to say how great Saturday night was !!!- the time just flew by
It was awesome to see so many women enjoying themselves in a healthy environment ( well minus the fat ridden food LOL
I haven't been having it too easy recently and lost quite a bit of confidence but is was just great to feel some of the old me coming back on Saturday night. I invited a friend from London and she really enjoyed it. Its true  that  God knows what we need and when we need it as she was really singing praises for the evening as she met with new people and had a great time.
Just wanted  to thanks for the organising as i know it took lots to get the evening organised and for it to run so smoothly 
Could say much more but will sign of now with a VERY BIG THANKS to everyone
Kind regards , H

And That Is Why We Do It!!!!!

The Simply events are all about providing a place or an activity to draw women together - to create community. To facilitate friendship and connection. To live out our lives and our faith together. And God really is in everything - whether we're guessing film titles or discussing book chapters; singing worship songs, praying together or hearing Bible preaches .

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…
