GOD is so Gracious
God's ways are higher than our ways.
After completing his training for the christian ministry at the Shool of Theology, Bridgend in June 2017, Pete commenced his first ministry as Pastor here at Westgate. During the time that Pete, Suzanne and the girls settled into life in Pembroke and as a pastor here at Westgate, we enjoyed times of learning and encouragement.
In September, Pete decided to step down from his position as pastor. As a fellowship we pray that Pete and the family will know God's bountiful blessings and guidance for their future.

Welcome in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ
As we enter into a period of Autumn and then Winter, we see beautiful sights of trees changing their colours and losing their leaves. It looks as if the leaves just die and fall off. BUT, research shows that leaves are designed to be disposable.
Re-usable resources in each leaf are retrieved by the tree and stored in its branches, trunk and root system to help the tree make it through the winter! After this is done, each leaf produces the chemicals necessary for it to loosen and enable it to drop off. If this happened too late in the year, after frosts come, then the necessary resources cannot be recovered by the tree to help it through the winter. God's intricate designs are becoming more and more apparent and we need to praise Him for His awesome attention to detail and for His unbounded love toward us.
Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer,
and the one who formed you from the womb,
“I, the LORD, am the maker of all things,
stretching out the heavens by myself,
and spreading out the earth all alone...”
