View Full Version : Hello from the UK!

Hello everyone!

My name is Carlie, I've just joined your forum today.

I come from Wales in the UK but now live in the north of Scotland, UK. I come from an unbelieving family and committed my life to Jesus on 17th March 2009. My family have found this change very hard to understand.

Knowing Jesus is the best thing that's ever happened to me.

I have noticed a massive deficit in young people at Church (I am 28) and I am eager to figure out how to start attracting young people to Church and to build up meaningful fellowship and support for young people. In my experience to date, it would seem sadly, Church here is seen as not the cool thing to do and I am eager to turn this around.

That's me! Look forward to encouraging and being encouraged and enjoying your fellowship!

Hi and welcome! It's so good to have you here, Carlie :) It must be hard having a family who doesn't understand. I hope you can find encouragement here!

Hi Carlie, welcome! :)

The ladies here are lovely! We have a couple of users here from the UK too (myself included)

Where abouts in northern Scotland are you from if you don't mind me asking? You're lucky to be from such a beautiful country ;)
