Hello my name is Melissa, I’m the Children and Youth People rep for St Philip’s. I attended St Philip’s when I was a young child attending Sunday school taught by Maria; my family then moved away for a few years. I attended other churches but then stopped going to church altogether to worship, as I never felt like I could settle in well in other churches I went to. Then, becoming an adult, I returned back to St Philip’s, even though I do not live in the area anymore, and I feel right at home! I instantly connected with St Philip’s and felt as if I belonged and had never left. The warm welcomes from Mother Anna and my church brothers and sisters really welcomed me back. I love and enjoy coming to church and I’m involved in church duties such as Sunday school teacher and being the children and young people’s rep and a member of the PCC.
