Originally transcribed on the occasion of her Baptism, 26/09/2021
"In my preschool years I went to a Sunday school which took place in a bungalow near this church, and was
taught by a lady called Mrs Lockwood. When I became old enough she brought us here where I attended with
my 3 sisters to join in with the children's groups - Ambassadors - and then as a teenager to the Young People's
Fellowship where I met my husband Paul.
At the age of 15 - at this church, I made a commitment and asked Jesus into my life. Since then Christ has been
central in my life, and has always been beside me - no matter what is happening. Life has not always been plain
sailing and, like most, there have been difficult times and sad times. But I am always conscious of Christ staying
beside me, always there to pray to, and gain strength from. I know that my prayers are heard. I know that often
I have to be patient waiting for him to answer, but I never have any doubt that he is with me.
It is with this knowledge that I now come to baptism. He is here with me now and I place my trust afresh in
Him. I have so much to be thankful for and feel so happy that I am being baptised.
God is my Father
Jesus is my Saviour
The holy spirit is my helper
and Heaven is my home."
