Welcome to Westgate
Although we have changed the clocks to give us a little more light in the mornings, the darkness still comes. Many dislike winter, it is cold, wet and dark. BUT, it is also the time of the year when we celebrate the coming of the Light of the World, to Light up our darkness. Not the darkness that surrounds us ,but the darkness that entraps our hearts.
Jesus is born. The Saviour has come. Praise God.
1 Peter 2:9
But you are a chosen people,
a royal priesthood,
a holy nation,
a people belonging to God,
that you may declare the praises of him
who called you out of darkness
into his wonderful light.
GOD is so Gracious in answering our prayers
God has set aside a man to Pastor His Church here at Westgate.
"Westgate Evangelical Chapel will celebrate its 150th anniversary in June 2017. That’s 150 years for which the name of Jesus Christ has been proclaimed as Lord and Saviour at Westgate. It will be our privilege to join the fellowship following the call for me to Pastor the church. We look to the future with great hope that God will continue to shower his grace and mercy upon us as we declare the greatness of our God and Saviour!
At the present time I live in Bridgend with my wife (Suzanne) and two daughters (Anna and Emmy). In the last few years the Lord has laid on my heart a deep desire for the Word of God to be preached, and for people to hear the truth of the good news of Jesus Christ. Having lived and worked in Devon as a Town Planner for 10 years, we moved to Wales in 2014 to study in preparation for ministering to God’s people. I will complete the course of study in May 2017 and then, God willing, begin in the Pastorate at Westgate in summer 2017.
We are really excited about the future and looking forward to encouraging the people of God and the wider Pembroke community with the love of Jesus Christ. I encourage you all to discover Jesus for yourself. When you do, by the grace of God, you will see that it is not you who have been seeking him, but that Jesus has been seeking you for salvation. He is living and reigning and will one day return for all those who have put their trust in him. Jesus declared in John 11:25-26 “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
In the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ
"Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart" Psalm 37:4
Do you remember your childhood? All that sunshine and open air living? We used to get up early, get dressed
DAY 4. PSALM 4.
The morning prayer of Psalm 3 is followed by the evening prayer today and what a song we are presented with, tiredness brings distortion with it.
Many of us have lived through the floods of recent years in Britain, but few will have witnessed the avalanche that followed the floods in Peru.
THE PROMISES OF GOD
I have been gripped by the thought of the promises of God that are going begging in Gods word for a little while now.
I am concerned that so few folk are taking the Lord at His word and by faith claiming those promises for themselves.
The Church seems asleep when it should be wide awake at the spiritual warfare that is raging around us as the enemy is making its last desperate stand.
