My name is Perpetua. I was born and raised in a Methodist family in Zimbabwe. Born a preacher's daughter, becoming a Methodist was not a choice. However, staying in the Methodist church was and is a choice I am proud I made.
I have been worshipping at Central Hall since I moved to Coventry many moons ago. I helped serve coffee pre-COVID times when all things were normal and hope to continue to do so in the new normal. I like people and enjoy the chats that come with providing that small comfort in the form of a hot drink. I am also a member of the Zimbabwean Fellowship. There I served a 3 year term as a treasurer, 2 years as the organising secretary and was recently elected by the young people to be their youth advisor.
I am a community mental health nurse which can be challenging at times but it is also rewarding.
I believe that making a positive difference in people's lives, no matter how small goes a long way. There are so many verses in the bible that tell us of how God loves us, even when we didn't do anything to deserve it. Luke 6:31 (ESV) says "And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them". I believe if we treated people, animals and the planet as a whole the way we would like to be treated, this world will be a better place. A place where compassion justice and peace prevail. I know we have a long way to go but I am honoured to be part of a team working towards achieving this goal.
