It was breakdancing that first brought me to St John’s Bowling. Lloyd (the leader of the Clean North Crew) had asked me to come and train with them and try out for the team. Training was in the church and it had a great feel. Lloyd then invited me to come to a church service one Sunday and because I had already been in the building I felt more at ease to go. I am so glad I went that day as it was the start of an amazing change in my life.
I used to feel anxious all the time and I worried a lot about myself, as well as my family and friends. I was very unsettled. But after coming to St John’s for a while I decided to ask Jesus to come into my life. I found a sense of contentment I had never felt before. I don’t feel anxious any more and I live my life appreciating everything God has done for me. That empty hole inside me has now been filled.
When I think about how much God loves me, it is the best feeling in the world! Coming to St John’s helped me find God. It really has made a massive impact in my life and I want others to have that experience too!
