  My faith basically consists of me, surrounded by the mess of my life and this world, gathering it all up and throwing it at God and knowing that he is bigger than all of it. My parents are both Christians and as I grew up they taught me a lot about wisdom, faith and […]

The thing I love about Christianity is that it’s for imperfect people…which works for me. Also, although it may come across this way, we don’t pretend to be perfect either. My life hasn’t had a single life-altering experience but perhaps rather, many small signposts which have steered me away from the wrong path, and instead […]

Fiona Hardyman, St. Cuth’s

I’m not a Christian because I was brought up in Christian home. I’m not a Christian because I’ve been going to church since I was born, or because I was taught to read my bible, pray and do ‘good’ things. I’m a Christian because I’ve realised that these things could never be enough. I’d always […]

Rachel Choi, St. Chad’s

I’ve always known God. As a young child I learnt about Him in Sunday School, prayed to Him every night before I went to bed and read stories about Him in my children’s Bible. As a teenager I went to the church youth group with my friends, discovered new things about Him as we did […]

Mariel Noris, St. Mary’s

Picturing a twelve year old Mariel watching a scene from the Lord of the Rings bawling her eyes out is perhaps rather comical when you think about it now, but I distinctively remember feeling the deepest sense of loneliness as Elrond told his immortal elf daughter of dwelling bound to her grief ‘until all the […]

Naomi Garratt, Hild Bede

3 years ago my best friend kept telling me that his favourite bible verse was ‘for me, to live is Christ and to die is gain’ (Philippians 1:21) and I was struck wondering how that is as good news as verses speaking of God’s love for us. However, I realised it totally sums up my […]

Being a student has its ups and downs, at this time my student life was filled with mostly downs. The work load of summatives was building up, and I knew I should do something about it. But I kept procrastinating, and it made me question my abilities. Within the different subjects, did I really know […]

From the 100 vocal chords of a cat to the 200 million working parts making up our eyes, the universe is just crazily detailed. Yet it would not be possible if any of the 15 constants (e.g. gravity) were off their specific values by even one part in a million!…there’s only so much that can […]

Stefan Spence, St. Aidan’s

My name is Stefan Spence. I’ve been lucky enough to come from a loving family who have my best interests at heart. I say lucky, but actually it’s more like a blessing from God. My parents always told me they loved me, but also that there was a God in heaven who loves me and […]
