Ian & Jennie
(Ian) I was brought up in a Christian home but found little of interest in church andeven less relevance to my life. As a teenager, I was relieved when I stopped having to go to church.
(Jennie) I believed in God but growing up didn’t feel the need to do anything about it. I enjoyed my job, had lots of friends and a great family.
When we got married, we were both busy enjoying full and happy lives with no thought or interest in the meaning or purpose of life. Everything in the garden was rosy.
After my son was born, I started to worry and I suddenly realised that I wouldn’t always be there to watch over him, protect him and keep him safe, and that I needed “ back up “. I didn’t have the resources to do it alone, I needed help!
(Ian) A few years after we were married, I started to ask myself the big questions of life – what was the point of it all, was there a God, who was Jesus anyway?
And the Alpha Course would have been perfect for me!
Thankfully, God had put some Christian friends around us and they were endlessly patient at answering questions, listening to our arguments and pointing us towards a God who loved us and cared about us.
