I did mention this earlier in the year but it may well have got lost in the excitement of the Summer!
On the weekend of the 23rd to 25th January 2009 we have the opportunity to go to Butlins together with the other Newfrontiers churches in our region for a weekend of fun, an opportunity to hear from Terry Virgo (the founder of Newfrontiers) and David Stroud (who heads up Newfrontiers in the UK), to worship together and to generally have a good time. Lee, our youth band Ethos and our youth team are also going to be heading up the youth work with over 600 young people expected to be there.
I mention it now for two reasons. First of all there is a price increase if you book after the 29th September. Secondly I heard this week that of the 3,500 places available there are only about 1,000 left - so if you want to go it would be a very good idea to book now. There are brochures with more details available in reception - the booking line is 0845 070 4772 if you want to book straight away.
Just to be clear I'm not by any means expecting everyone from Kerith to go. In fact that weekend will only be our third week of doing two morning meetings so if everyone does go we'll be in deep trouble! But if you fancy going and can afford it then I think you'll enjoy it.
There is an £80 refund if you serve. If you want to serve with the youth please chat with Lee before signing up to make sure he'll have something for you to do.
Hope to catch lots of you this weekend as we start our six week series on money.
