If you were unable to share in our Vision Sunday in September, please make sure you have a copy of the three handouts (a summary of the vision – also available above on this page, a pledge form, and Gift Aid form). There are packs of these to take away in the West Road church foyer, and also from Westley Community leaders. You can also request them from the church office. Also, listen to the various inspiring talks recorded that day that are on this website, so that you too can catch the vision, or revisit what was said.
All visitors are welcome – please make yourself known to us when you arrive, or fill in a welcome card that you’ll find in the foyer, and we will get in contact. We take up an offering at all our services – but please feel under no obligation to give. We are simply glad you’re with us.
Shine Kidswork – if you have children and teenagers with you, then simply take them into the foyer and we will help you find our childrens groups.
Your children can join us for a fun filled fabulous session learning about Jesus and developing a friendship with him.
