Lorraine Monger - Deacon

Worshipped at Bethany Baptist Church since 2001.

I grew up in Bristol and moved to Caldicot in 1988. I am married with 3 children in their 20’s and I was very privileged to be in the baptismal pool and help baptise them all with our Pastor John Hall, 8 years ago. I Started attending Bethany Baptist Church in January of 2001 as my oldest Son was going to the 7-11’s youth club and he wanted to go to Sunday School so I took him along on a Sunday morning and felt so welcome and was captivated by what I was hearing being said about Jesus and how he changes people’s lives.

In February 2001, I started an Alpha course and became a Christian in April 2001 during the Alpha course. I was elected as a Deacon in 2012 and I love being part of such an amazing leadership team. We have great meetings and I really enjoy the friendship we all have and the support we give each other. We also manage to laugh a lot and have a great time together discussing various things about the church life. In January of this year (2016) I took on the role of Administrator for the church. I am really enjoying this role and have found myself going back to my roots as I worked in an office when I left school until the birth of my first child.

One of my favourite verses is Jeremiah 29:11:
"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
