The amazing thing about being a real Christian is that it's not about religion, it's not about duty, it's not about what I have to do or who I have to be. Incredibly, it's about relationship - a real living relationship with Jesus!
In this section you will find some real life stories that demonstrate how incredible this relationship is. It transforms, it renews, it grips, it motivates, it restores!
Read through some of these stories. Hear what real people have to say about how Jesus met with them and changed there lives forever. And, having read and heard, come along to find out more for yourself, or look elsewhere on this website to find out how you too can know this incredible relationship with Jesus.
Not only a wonderful song by Louis Armstrong but a wonderful way to kick-off the evening meetings of this week’s Passion For Life event.
A personal request from the guest speaker Fiona Castle, OBE, the song so illustrates her view that we are privileged to enjoy such a wonderful life in a wonderful world.
Have you ever, or often, said to yourself “If only?”
The second evening meeting of this week’s Passion For Life event saw guest speaker, journalist and musician Mike Mellor, give a frank and open account of his life.
Could you forgive the person who killed your son?
200 people attended the third evening meeting of this week’s Passion For Life event organised by Street Baptist Church, saw guest speaker, former Chief Constable of the Isle of Man Robin Oake, give an account of how his faith helped him through the difficulties and aftermath of his son’s tragic death. Robin’s son, Steve, was stabbed eight times, once fatally through the heart, when he was part of an anti-terrorist operation in 2003.
Are you willing to stand up for something you believe in, even if it means you will face death threats?”
Close to 250 people attended the fourth evening meeting of this week’s Passion For Life event organised by Street Baptist Church. There were plenty of moments of joy and laughter as jokes and pleasant “banter” were exchanged between the evangelist Roger Carswell as he interviewed the former Zimbabwean International cricketer, artist and singer Henry Olonga. There was also stunning moments when the people in the marquee at Hindhayes School were silent as they listened to Henry singing, particularly his rendition of Nessun Dorma.
The first evening guest speaker Fiona Castle started the Passion for Life event with the comment “what a wonderful world” and our final evening guest speaker Adam Pengilly closed his interview with the evangelist Roger Carswell with the words “new life with Jesus is wonderful”.
Around 230 people attended the final evening meeting of last week’s Passion For Life event organised by Street Baptist Church to hear from the Olympic athlete, Adam Pengilly. Adam is a local boy, born at Creech St Michael, near Taunton.
