A God who surprises
By Emily Brake
In January 2007 my husband Gareth and I moved to Milton Keynes from London, with the plan for it to be for about 6 months whilst we got our feet back on the ground after a trying season! God definitely had other plans! Over the next year through the amazing people at MKCCs love and encouragement, my bruised and tired spirit was uplifted.
I found REAL passion again to do what I love which is to lead people in worship. At the end of 2008 Pastor Mark, asked me to take on the responsibility of leading the worship team at MKCC. Later I came on staff full time in 2010. I had dreamed my whole life of being involved in such a church and having such a role, and circumstances had just seemed to get in the way and I’d believed it not possible – but GOD knew. The dream God had put in my heart came to fruition when I least expected it.
When we moved to Milton Keynes we had no idea what our future would look like, but our lives were transformed by a God who is able to do immeasurably more than we can ever imagine!
