“Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”

Hebrews 4:16

Prior to 2008, my church attendance could be counted on one hand, my knowledge of the Bible was very limited and I only prayed infrequently.

God came into my life around that time and since then I started to develop an awareness of God and an interest in reading Scriptures and I knew I wanted to get baptised. It was important for me to find the right church to join and I started to pray frequently. I now realise God has been with me throughout my entire life.

 

My prayers were answered when I started to attend Holmer Green Baptist Church in August 2014. I was made to feel very welcome and immediately knew this was the Church I wanted to belong to. I was baptised in October 2014. My wife, Carol, also started to attend Church with me and was herself subsequently baptised in November 2015. We have a grown up son.

By taking on the role of Deacon I feel I am giving back to God for all the blessings he has bestowed on me throughout my life.

My two favourite Bible verses and which I find most comforting are: 

Hebrews 4:16 “Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need” (and) 1 Peter 5:7 “Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you”.

I have been recently appointed as the Church's Safeguarding Trustee.
