Fill a Handbag for REAL


“You can’t have too many bags!”  

This year at Real we are delighted to support Kerith Social Justice, as we “fill a handbag”.

We all have our own “handbag essentials” – perhaps your’s include a mirror; some handcream and a pretty notebook? We’ve compiled a list of 10 items to fill a handbag. The gifts will then be presented beautifully and given to those women connected with our community that we feel really need blessing. Women are renowned for putting their families before themselves, and buying things for themselves last, if at all.
The lovely handbag treats that you buy will help us to show love to women who are facing struggles, communicating to them that they are not on their own.

So, if you are shopping today or this week, please would you also buy something(s) from this list?
-Fold-up Shopping Bag
-Notebook
-Pens
-Small umbrella
-Lip Balm
-Emery Board
-Compact
-Hand Cream
-Body Spray
-Mints/Sweets

Bring them along with you when you come to REAL next Friday evening.


Once we're at REAL next week we have an additional way to bless these women!
At Kerith reception, you can purchase £5 gift vouchers that the lovely ladies will be able to redeem for a pedicure, manicure, facial or cut and blow dry at the local college beauty salon! This is such a great treat - and at an amazing price!

You can find out more information about the various ministries within Kerith Social Justice here. And if you're doing a food shop today, could you add something for Foodbank to your basket please - and bring it into Kerith tomorrow.

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…

It's been a while

So, I've been gone a while....and  I've been wondering about launching a new blog - perhaps a new look,a new blog, a totally new start? In the wondering I've done nothing, so instead, I'm just going to pick it up again, and start writing.... 
So this week I had the privilege of spending time with some Prayer warriors in the Kerith Prayer room. We gathered to pray for the upcoming Mission Trips to Albania and Macedonia.  - They did me such good, as they shared what God had been saying to them in their own prayer times - words of encouragement that He will bring restoration of relationships; He will bring healing ; there will be lots of new people who haven't been to UNIKE before; there'll be a fresh move of the Holy Spirit; somethingnewandmoreis going to happen this year; He is going to take things to another level. You can imagine how excited I was to hear these whispers from God - join me in a moment's prayer right now, that we'll see Him work?
It's …
