Gabriel's story...

 

I  am originally from Zimbabwe and have lived in this country since 2005. I was born into a family of Methodists on my mother’s side. My grandfather was an itinerant local preacher travelling miles on his bicycle to preach the gospel. My mother was accredited as a local preacher 44 years ago and is still an active local preacher in the Methodist Church in Zimbabwe. Read more...

Born into a family steeped in Methodism I was surrounded! I am not saying my family were saintly, but they were very loyal to the church and its teachings.

We renamed Y.M.A as ‘your marriages arranged; because, many folk met their partner through the youth group, I met my Iris that way. Read more...

I was influenced by my parents, my mother played the organ for many years, and also good Christian friends. I remember attending a Billy Graham rally and felt God calling me to commit my life to him. Read more...

Phill's story...

 

I was 48 when I became a Christian (always thought I was), hardly ever went to church and didn't have a Christian upbringing, but the Alpha Course and the evangelist Case Schrage brought me to Christ.  Read more...

Wendy's story...

 

I was brought up in a small country chapel in the Primitive Methodist tradition. I helped to lead worship with a team of young people from across the Circuit, and later with a student team as part of Liverpool University Methsoc... Read More...
