I have often wondered about all the people that attended,what was mount zion fellowship on kennelwood avenue. It as been over 30 odd years since i was a member. But i can still remember it vividly the weekly meetings in the back room at 76 kennelwood ave. Then the highlight of the week the big meeting at Kirkby sports centre.
Don't get me wrong i did meet some nice friendly people there. I thought Graham and Mary Watts, Dave Doyle were really nice people. I am not going to rip these people i just think as the years have passed and judging by the comments on this forum. I just hink that Cheryl Doyle was the more domineering person in that quartet and as asserted her influence over them.
I think she was good at targeting the weak and vulnerable in the fellowship. I was close to a few people in the fellowship and told them to be wary of Cheryl and what she was telling them.
I could see her for what she was she wanted people that she could manipulate. People can still have a strong belief in god and take comfort in their faith, but telling you how to live your life and how to raise your children in the name of god. Is wrong in my eyes you can't instil what you believe in onto your children. Especially as they get older they have a right to make a choice.
I remember Maureen,john w, alison m, dianne p, to name a few. The comment about Sharon Mccomb i thought she had gotten married off. I know a few of the female members had been paired off for marriage after i had left. I can't believe that some of the members that were there when i left are still there 30 odd years later.
I remember a few members moving up to the kennelwood area from really nice areas. Because the elders of the fellowship said that they would be needed to help save the people in that area. I remember visiting the millbrook walk house so i can sympathise with that young girls horror of moving somewhere so alien to her.
I have more to say but that's for another time.
Take care and god bless you all
