MEET OUR FAMILY
When I was sixteen I started to attend the youth club at a church at the top of my road where I lived in Birkenhead. At one meeting I was asked us that if we were to die tonight where would we go to – Heaven or Hell. Even though there were lots of people in the meeting, I felt that I was the only person there.
I can still remember the terrible loneliness that I felt left as an only child. However I had a very close friend who I could always talk to and say just how I felt. His name was Jesus....
Hi my name is Bill, I first came to Dovecot Church in 1964 however, I walked away from these things in my teenage years and stopped going to church.
Later I came to feel the truth and force of all that I had heard in my early years back at Dovecot Sunday School. I felt that God was calling me back to Himself.....
I grew up in a Christian home. My earliest memory of realising that I was a sinner and that it was Jesus’ work on the cross that saved me from the wages of my sins was when I was in church and I heard the lyrics “I’ll never know how much it costs to see my sins up on that cross”. It was in that moment that the gospel resonated with me.
One day a lady at work invited me to go to a house meeting I was taught all about Jesus and His love, but never knew Him personally as my Saviour and my friend. I was convicted that I was a sinner and asked the Lord to forgive me my sins and to come into my life
I was brought up in the Church of England and started attending church at 4 years of age. I have always believed in God but did not have a personal relationship with Him. On hearing the Easter story at school, I realised that Jesus had died on the cross for my sins....
I was born into a catholic family and was baptised according to the catholic doctrine. Later in life, I went to anther Church where I learnt more about God and His gift to man in the person of Jesus Christ. I acknowledged my sins before God and invited the Lord Jesus into my life.
As a little girl I was conscious of wanting to please God but I didn't know how to do it.
I went to a young people's meeting at a church
That night I prayed to God and asked Him to come into my life.
Now nearly fifty years on God is still with me and I am with Him.
I was born into a broken home and aged 11 became resident at Strawberry Field children’s home, when aged 16 I joined the army, in the Kings Regiment. Aged 22 having served Queen and country for 6 years, travelling the world and experiencing the horrors of war, life for me was extremely difficult.
