Wilbert’s Story

My name is Wilbert and I am a farmer. I live near Glenavy and am married to Ethna. I enjoy travelling and going to events associated with my work such as Vintage Tractor Rallies, Agricultural Shows and Fairs. In the church here at Killead, I sing in the choir and I serve on the Kirk Session and Congregational committee.

I came to know Jesus as Saviour and Lord at the close of a Gospel Mission when I was 16 years old. I realised that I was a sinner and not ready for Heaven. I knew from the Bible that only Jesus could forgive sin so I repented and trusted on Him alone for salvation.

In answer to the question, what do you enjoy most about church, I would say that our church is a place where we can all come together to worship and praise God. When we meet for Bible Study and Prayer, we can share our joys and problems just like a family. I would dearly love to see more people taking time out from their busy lives to join us on Wednesday evenings at 8pm.

My favourite verse from the Bible is Romans Ch10, v9. “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”

I also love this Hymn.

Redeemed, how I love to proclaim it.

Redeemed by the blood of the Lamb.

Redeemed through His infinite mercy;

His child and forever I am.
