My new journey of understanding my faith, began many years later –through ALPHA.
It started in conversation with Janet and Eric (members of St Michaels Church Lilleshall,) who initiated my interest to attend ALPHA where I could explore more about the Christian Faith.
It was no coincidence that within weeks of this conversation, I heard on Radio Shropshire a broadcast for such an event and that it would be at St Johns Church Muxton.
And surely it wasn’t a coincidence that my new journey would begin with the first day of ALPHA where I would continue in my search, exploring and evidencing my Christian Belief. I found new friends on Alpha who were also in search of understanding of what life is really about. These very natural human traits are in us all.
Now 12 years on my faith has grown in knowledge and understanding as I realised the stories I had heard of in childhood were founded on fact. Don’t get me wrong, I know in this lifetime my search for perfection will be in vain, but doing my best with Jesus in my life I have learnt that whatever life has in store for me I am secure in my faith.
