Welcome to Westgate
In vain, I have been waiting for snow. I saw 3 flakes falling to the ground in February!
The mornings, and evenings have been dark and cold, trees have looked like arrangements of dead, odd shaped sticks, nothing seemed to be happening. How wrong can we be. Mornings and evenings are getting brighter, glorious signs of life have been just beneath the surface and are just waiting to burst through.
How is your spiritual life? Is it in a dark place? Easter is almost upon us. The glorious sign of new life and increased growth is imminent. We don't need to be covered in darkness. The light of the World penetrates that darkness. Look to Jesus, turn to Him and know that newness of life.
"Turn your eyes upon Jesus
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
in the light of His Glory and Grace"
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
