How did you become a Christian?
Robin - I was introduced to the idea of Jesus being my friend and forgiving my sin as a
child. Since then I've grown in my understanding, had my faith strengthened by
questioning and searching for answers and over the last 5 or 6 years my relationship
with Him has grown in closeness.
Tessie - I was brought up in the Catholic church and at the age of 11 I started attending
a C of E church. My first encounter with the Holy Spirit of God was at the age of 15 and
this changed me. I no longer wanted to just attend church but wanted to know Jesus for myself. Since then, I've encountered God's love in different ways and am growing closer
to Him every day.
What do you do to relax?
Robin - I enjoy being creative, whether that's writing and recording songs, working on
video projects or just playing my guitar.
Tessie - I also enjoy being creative, e.g painting and sewing, but I really value my
friendships, so spending time with the people who are close to me is really important
too
