Serving in the Church
As a church, we are part of God's family, and as a family, we encourage all our members to be involved in the life of the church.
There are many opportunities to serve, both on a Sunday and throughout the week. Whilst there are always blanks on various rotas, we believe that it is important that we try to understand what gifts and talents God has given you, so that we can help you to both develop and exercise them for the glory of God. For this reason, we don't advertise those rota blanks and would rather have a personal conversation.
If you would like to serve in the church, speak to one of the leadership team on a Sunday or contact the church office
Many people who attend Westgate Baptist Church regularly choose to become church members. We believe this is a system which is consistent with the first churches established in The Bible, and the way they have taught us to operate. At present, we have about 120 members.
Church membership involves committing to the life of the church. Members take responsibility for carrying out jobs that make the life of the church run smoothly, for caring for people who come to Westgate Baptist, and for helping organise the church through matters voted on at members' meetings.
These meetings are held at least four times a year, at which decisions are taken on issues such as finances, staff issues, and the church's future strategy. Virtually every aspect of life at Westgate Baptist Church exists because of decisions taken by members.
We encourage people who are committed Christians to become church members. However, anyone who does not feel ready to take this step is very welcome to attend the church and join in all of our other meetings.
