My first recollection of God was when I was 4 years old. My mother was very ill and I was taken into care. My foster mother Doreen must have been a Christian because I remember her taking me to a church hall in Stroud Rd where the New Testament Church now stands, sitting on the floor singing ‘Praise him, praise him, all the little children God is Love’.

When I was 20 I tried to take my life. It was a cry for help and a very low time in my life. I was invited to go to Robinswood church on the 7th of January 1979. I later found out that the church in High street where I went from time to time as a child had moved to a new building. 

God uses those who love him, and he used people in my life so I could know him. This is my story. God will never leave you or forsake you. Thank you Jesus for keeping me safe and carrying me at the lowest points in my life.
