|About Us - Our Stories
are a group of about 45-50 people living locally who meet together to
worship Jesus and to tell others about him. Read some of our
stories about how we became Christians:
My name is Sandra Stokes, I’m married, have 3 grown-up children, a grandson, and am a part time learning support assistant. This is how I became a Christian…
I was born in Royston and went to church every Sunday with my family. But it didn’t mean much to me and when my dad died suddenly aged 42 (when I was 17), I thought “How could God let that happen?” – and stopped going to church.
My sister became a Christian in her twenties and invited me to go to REC. She had to invite me many times before I agreed to go! But when I did, I felt that God was speaking personally to me. It was amazing! I realised I needed God’s forgiveness and I learned that Jesus died on the cross in my place – for what I’d done wrong. So one night I prayed asked Jesus to come into my life. The next day I was filled with an inexpressible joy.
I still do and say things I shouldn’t. But I know that God forgives me and is working to change me. In the Bible Jesus says, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full”. I would encourage you to do what the Bible says and “Taste and see that the Lord is good.”
I would rather believe in an endless hope than a hopeless end! I don’t have all the answers to life’s questions - but I trust in God.
