Kathy's Story

Kathy Neal

When I came to Oxford, I was impressed with the way the senior leaders were willing to invest in us - coming to our colleges and even our rather squalid student house in order to talk with us! I was looking for a place where the gifts of the spirit were valued and where I was encouraged to be a disciple, so once existing Christians in my college told me about OCC I came, stayed, and, well you know the rest!

I once brought along a friend who had been a Marxist atheist and had just become a Christian - I was terrified of what he'd think! But I think he saw authenticity and relationship - he came back again and again and is now a vicar!
