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...

Janet's story...

Harold's story...

I joined the Methodist Sunday school in Bilston in 1947, aged 10, and became a Church member in 1953. Also in 1953 the minister and Marian Musselwhite set up a youth group under the Methodist new movement which was the 'Youth Missionary Association' and we met on Sunday evenings in the manse. 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...
