It All Goes Into the Creative Bucket!

Did you hear Sunday's site host talk about tonight's Bucket Meeting?

It's 8-9.30 pm at the Kerith Centre, and it sounds like it's going to be a fun place to pop along and contribute your creative ideas! So if you've started this year thinking you'd like to be a bit more creative, or that you'd like to have a go at something new or to meet new people, this could be something worth getting out of the house for!

My particular interest in tonight is that some of the ideas going into the bucket will be for REAL in June. The creativity at REAL is one of the great highlights of our conference, and something that we always get positive feedback about. So I am so looking forward to seeing and hearing the new ideas!

Here are some more details (pinched from Simons blog!)

Creative Arts Bucket Meeting

In 2014 our Creative Arts team have been tasked with getting better at sourcing great ideas. One of their key strategies for doing this is to create a place where they can gather ideas from the wider church on subjects such as sermon series, music, drama, events, stage design etc. Three times a year, Kerith Creatives are going to host an event called a “Bucket Meeting” where anyone (that means you!) can come along and throw any ideas you’ve ever had about Kerith into the “Creative Bucket”. To start with, we’ll be specifically looking at Sundays and Events, but as time goes on, we’ll look to expand to ideas for other areas of church life.

The first Bucket Meeting is on Monday 13th January 2014 at the Kerith Centre on the Bracknell site at 8pm-9.30pm. For those of you who’d like some thinking time before hand, below are the topics we’ll be capturing ideas for in the upcoming meeting:

  • REAL
  • Generosity
  • Christmas 2014
  • Promises of God
  • Easter
  • Mothers Day
  • Ideas for Preaching Topics
  • General Ideas

If you plan to come along, feel free to bring anything you’ve seen or collected that you think might be helpful, either in digital or print format (as long as it fits through the front doors!), or just bring yourself and brainstorm as we chat. If you have ideas but are unable to attend, please send your ideas into creative.arts@kerith.co.uk before 13 January 2014. We’re really excited to gather a wider pool of ideas from you all and are looking forward to innovating together as a community.

Simon.

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 …
