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.

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 …
