Kristian Dimond at September’s South Hereford Filling Station
Kristian Dimond pastor of Wellington Chapel and former professional football player at Cardiff City and Crystal Palace football clubs spoke at September’s meeting. We began the meeting with a time of prayer for our world, God’s world and environmental impact which was very much on our hearts following on from the climate strikes the day before. After a time of worship led by Keith and John, Kristian shared how he’d come to faith after growing up in a non church background and then being part of the professional football world. Injury forced him to give up football and he became a successful business man but then his wife Carla became a Christian. Kristian shared how it was just words for many months until the day came where he met God and his life was turned upside down. He went to Bible college and became an assistant pastor but then God called him to Wellington Chapel, despite job offers in London and the USA. He knew this was where God wanted him and his family. Everyone at the Filling Station was hugely encouraged by Kristian’s story, his honesty about the ups and downs of his life and his faith and trust in God. It was a powerful evening!
