A little "me time"

Roll up! Final call for Word and Worship tickets!

You know what it's like when you've got people coming round, and you think there's 8, so you shop for 8, but the it turns out to be 12, so you either shop again or make it stretch? Yep, us too! So it's really helpful to know if you're planning to come to Word and Worship on Saturday - we'd love the place packed, and we're praying and planning for that, but we don't want to end up with too many lovely fresh warm Danish pastries, pieces of fruit, glasses of juice or cups of hot filter coffee (or tea, or those lovely herbal things!), and we certainly we don't want to end up with not enough :(

So if you're planning to come and haven't managed to buy your ticket yet, please call into or phone Kerith reception (01344 862699) between 9.30 and 4.30 today, or send me a quick email catrina.benham@kerith.co.uk and we'll get your ticket put by for you to pay and collect on Saturday.

It's going to be such a great morning together - a woman who came to one of the previous brunches described the two hour morning as "short enough to not interfere with your other family or work commitments, but long enough to indulge in some 'me time'", so please do come and join us. Bring a friend (share the car!) bring your Bible and notebook. Bring yourself and just "be". Word / Worship / Brunch = you + friends + food + God, and that sounds like a wonderful combination to me!

See you Saturday x

African sky

I'm writing this in the eerie light of Monday afternoon - anyone else noticed the yellow-tinged sky? I'm reliably informed (thanks Jake!) that the high winds are picking up dust particles from Liberia and North Africa, turning our sky a yellowish colour and definitely giving off an unusual atmosphere! Kind of intriguing too, as we are about to leave for a 10 day trip to Zambia this evening! We're flying overnight, and when we get there temperatures are high 90s - I have no idea how I'm going to cope with that at all...so I'm not even thinking about it right now! 
We'll stay a few days in Lusaka, visiting Sam and Hannah Fairs-Billam and their girls;  and Tehila, the charity they run, Then it's a 5 hour journey North to reconnect with the pastors and families in Serenje, and visit the Dormitory to meet the girls. 
Please do pray for us - safety and good health, pray for our families, pray that everywhere we go we take people up in their lift! (If like me you…

It'll All Be Over Soon...don't miss it!

Well the time is flying isnt it? (or is that just me?)
Ready or not, 2017 is coming to an end and Christmas is fast approaching.


Every. Single. Year. I declare "This is the Christmas I'm going to be calm / spend less / really feel ready and at peace / have time for people / feel close to Jesus and hear His voice / have time and space to enjoy the run-up...and so on (sound familiar anyone?)

Anyone else secretly echoing this top's sentiments in their thoughts?!?!

I'm not an earlybird, or the most organised - and get this, right now I can't find my little Christmas notebook - you know, the one with the last last 4 years of presents given and received listed - anywhere!!!! If you heard Simon preach on Sunday you'll know this is driving me mad!

I'd really love to hear your tips for enjoying and flourishing during this season. We don't' want to just "survive it" do we!
Here are a few of mine.

Make my money go further
First thing to say is to set a limi…

Hello again :)

Long time no see!!!!
What to talk about after so long an absence?!?!

I've had so many wonderful experiences and opportunities recently, and so I can't wait to tell you the stories of my travel to support women's conferences in Albania and Macedonia. 

God was so good to us, and it was such a privilege to travel there with our wonderful Kerith women, to pray for the Balkan women and to stand alongside them as their sisters, encouraging them in their faith. 
We had adventures; new experiences; thunder storms and sunshine; lost luggage and unexpected gifts. We saw salvations and re-commitments; we prayed for women of all ages and backgrounds; some of us were more successful at mastering the language than others, but we had a go! We sang worship songs in a mixture of "have-a-go-Albanian" and the few English lines we could remember (and just kept repeating them!) 
We gave away what we had in terms of our faith and trust in God. We know that we received so much from being th…
