My Name is Zenani Sibindi. I am 24 years old and I have been involved in Frampton Park Baptist Church since I was about 15 and have been attending there with my sister ever since. We found this church when my sister and I moved back to our father’s house in Homerton from foster care. Our foster carer helped us find a church in Hackney to continue our faith. We found this church and came to one of the Sunday services. At the end of the service our carer told us that God told her that this was going to be the church for us and we’ve been coming ever since. I like to see God’s will be done and I like to help out wherever possible. I believe that we all have a calling and being part of that church helps to see that. I like to see people doing what God has called them to do. It is what I love so much about Frampton Park.
