Real Lives 2018

Real Lives is an opportunity to hear real stories from people who have been changed by Jesus.

In October 2018, Real Lives returned to Above Bar Church! From 7th to 12th October 2018 we heard four special guests speaking about their lives. Each evening featured an interview with a different guest, followed by a short talk explaining the Christian faith.

2018's guests...

After the death of his father at the hands of the I.R.A., Billy McCurrie wanted to seek revenge. This led him down a destructive path, and Billy became involved in a paramilitary organisation. On 7th October, we heard him speak about the journey that has led him to where he is now, and what ultimately helped him to deal with the loss of his father.

How do you value yourself when life seems to only bring you down? Lynnette Faith has spent much of her life as a singer constantly moving - job to job, home to home, searching for something to make her feel complete. On 10th October, we heard how she found acceptance and hope in the most unexpected person and place.

Issues about who we are face all of us in modern society. Tracy Trinita became Indoneisa’s first supermodel, and it seemed like she had achieved the dream. But the fame, success and glamour proved hollow. On 11th October, we heard Tracy share her incredible story.

Baroness Caroline Cox is a member of the House of Lords, and was once a Baroness-in-Waiting to the Queen. Her career has spanned a range of disciplines, including involvement in several universities around the United Kingdom. As well as her work in education, Baroness Cox has used her position to help “be a voice for the voiceless.” On 12th October, we heard her talking about her work with aid charities worldwide, and the impact that faith has made on her life.
