Memories of Huyton Church- Help in my hour of need

Jennifer Hayes ( nee James and Evans as I was at this time) with a precious memory of St Michael's.

I had had a difficult period in my life and  my only refuge was to live and work in a hotel, with my son, in Shropshire. I suppose I was close to being destitute and the life we had was not a good start for my 5 yr old son. Ann Murphy, (Collison) was my long time school friend. I was pleased that Ann got in touch and we spoke of then and now as you do. Not long after I was contacted by Liz, saying I could come home to Huyton. Liz turned up in her car and moved us back to Huyton where, to my amazement, Liz and her mum, Capt Rourke and the rest of Huyton Parish Church had found and fully furnished a flat for us on Essex Road. I will never forget the kindness of all involved and the feeling of having a secure and lovely home. It made a great difference to our lives and gave us a new start. I was able to attend CF Mott and trained to be a teacher. The rest is history as they say, but that history couldn't have been made from where we were then - I shudder to think what would have lay ahead for us. So, once again, Thank you Huyton Parish Church!

I had almost forgotten about that. I rember too, that the day I came for you was very foggy. I nearly got lost in the middle of a country lane, not knowing which road to take. A voice in a vehicle behind me said " Dont be afraid, carry straight on. The fog will clear" I did and it did. I remember standing outside the door of the flat and handing you the key.....  Thanks for that Jennifer,,,,,,,
