Cherish Conference

I'm away for a few days at Cherish, Abundant Life Church's womens conference. It's very rainy and grey, but that's not going to get in the way of enjoying a brilliant conference! The speakers are great, very challenging and inspiring. The worship is wonderful. And of course, all us women are hilarious - queuing in the rain super-early, then pushing and shoving to get good seats ( yes, at this Christian conference!) It's a real privilege for me to come away for a few days, this close to REAL (2 weeks today!!!!!) and it's a real blessing - I know I'm being fed and encouraged and challenged. You'll probably think these things sound simple, but God knew that they are just what I needed to hear this morning, as I worshipped and listened to the preaches. God bless you, this grey and rainy Friday - dig deep! x

Whatever the question or circumstance, Jesus is the answer

We have the privilege to be His voice and to represent Him

Our Calling and purpose are not defined by what we do - it has to be bigger than that - about who we are, not what we do. Our calling is something we will unpack over a lifetime.

Our obedience (in stepping up, speaking out and leading) will lead to the deliverance of others.

Just say what God has told you to say (in spite of knees knocking and butterflies in the stomach - which I was enciuraged to hear that even Charlotte still has!)

Jesus be the centre of it all

Everything revolves around Jesus

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…

Paula's Encouragement

I love a podcast!
Podcasts get me through situations where time might drag, or perhaps I've got some time to myself - I'm think a bike work-out at the Gym; a long car journey; or food for my mind and soul whilst I'm cooking.

I've just got back from holiday, and having missed a couple of Sundays, I have caught up with Kerith podcasts, listening to three outstanding preaches from Ben Pocock and Ben Oliver in Bracknell; and Heather Pocock in Sandhurst - I found myself wanting to join in with a few loud "amens" this morning at the gym!

What about you? Let me know when and where do you listen to podcasts?

Our guest contributor today is the wonderful Paula Ridgway - with her large heart , great enthusiasm and infectious faith, she is such a huge blessing to many at Kerith. 
Over to Paula for her encouragement to simply gather a few friends, to listen to a podcast together and then talk about it and see what God is saying. 

"Podcasts are great if one misses out on a …
