It is with a heavy heart that the church building is only open for a limited time for personal prayer due to the COVID pandemic, but it is vital that we follow the guidance of those who God has placed in authority, for the good of the entire community. However, just because the building is closed for all but a couple of hours a day, does not mean that the church is closed. For those who call this church "home", we are meeting on Zoom every Sunday and many groups are still continuing virtually. Our email also remains active until such time as we can open our doors again to welcome all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

To help maintain social distancing during personal prayer, we are limiting the number of people in the building at any one time.  To avoid disappointment we are asking people to let us know when they wish to attend. Church members can log in to the members area to "book their slot". Any one from the local community is welcome to use the sanctuary for personal prayer but we ask that you leave a message on the church office answering machine and someone will get back to you. 

Welcome to Westgate Baptist

We are a friendly, family church made up of people from many different backgrounds and cultures but all sharing the same desire to follow God and show his love to others around us. We would love you to join us this Sunday as we gather together for worship and teaching from the bible; or throughout the week for our many activities.
