Jemima’s Story

October 7, 2021

I grew up in a Christian family but had never shown much interest in Christianity as I associated it with long sermons and conservative views of today’s society.

Going to Uni I expected my degree, sport, and nights out to form my identity, little did I know that I would discover a whole new perspective to life by finding my identity in Jesus. I started attending a Church, which completely turned what I thought I knew about Sunday services on its head. After listening to worship music and an engaging talk, I felt more connected to what I had been questioning since the start of Uni.

I found a wonderful community who welcomed me, and it formed the foundation for supporting me through the stresses of the third year of my degree. I had a powerful experience early on in my time at the church where I had the feeling of being met by the Holy Spirit when asking for a sign. Since this moment, my faith has moved from strength to strength, and I can’t wait to see what the future brings for my relationship with God.
