January – February 2017
Welcome to Westgate
Can we really believe that time is going so quickly? We look one way and then the other, and another year has gone! Oh, how important it is that we make the most of the time allotted to us, however long or short that is. The most important decision we will ever have to make, is either to reject or accept the Saving Grace of Jesus Christ. His love for us is not from year to year, but is everlasting! Without Jesus Christ we are eternaly lost.
We have just entered a New Year, and on Christmas day we recently cellebrated the fact of the Birth of Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour. He came for one reason, and one reason only. He came that you may be made new. Born again. Don’t go through this year without becoming a New You.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
1 Peter 1:3
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
