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.

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…

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…

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…
