Who are we?
As with most Christian Fellowships, Westgate is made up of a wide range of individuals.
We have a wide range of ages.
We have a wide range of skills.
We have a wide range of interests.
We are all here to witness to the Love of Jesus. All in our own way.
As with any long lasting group of people, there has to be an organised structure.
We have a Pastor Pete Roberts. Pete came to us in June 2017, after we had been seeking the Lords guidance for two years. Pete and his family are here to encourage and build-up the church so that together we can go out to the whole town of Pembroke with the good news of Jesus Christ.
We have Elders, Dave Thomas and Simon John, who support the Pastor and try to maintain a structured place of worship that is honouring to God.
In our congregation, people accompany hymn singing, organise events, organise group activities.
In our congregation we try to encourage, help and love one another in spiritual and practical ways.
God has blessed us in so many ways. He loves us.
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
