Our DNA

1. Our Heartbeat

Jesus has beautifully changed our lives for the better. That’s why we want to see, savour and showcase his love and goodness to others. In this sense, we are a witnessing church.

We believe we’re meant to do that by ever-increasingly being a place of (a) true belonging, (b) powerful becoming and (c) generous B.L.E.S.S.ing.

2. Our Vision

Our vision, therefore, is (1) to see hundreds of lives transformed, and (2) tens of congregations started, launching teams on mission in London, and around the world.

We began that in 2019, sending and supporting a team to plant Union Church in Walthamstow.

3. Our Mission

We seek to do the above in three main ways:

1. B.L.E.S.S.ing Everyone

Sharing the good news of Jesus through what we say and do. Find out more about B.L.E.S.S.

2. Strengthening Believers

Helping one another become more like Jesus.

3. Training Leaders

Empowering servant-hearted people to take responsibility.

4. Our Feel

We think of ourselves as a unifying “both/and” church. These four identity statements came out of a listening exercise we did as a church family in 2020.

The comments below the concepts are quotes or summaries of what many people said when they were asked to describe Westminster Chapel.

1. Acceptance & Transformation

Come as you are. Authentic non-judgemental welcome. Honest and open. Truth (spoken in love). Loved too much to stay as you are. Hope for positive change. Everything is done at Chapel under the banner or flags of grace and peace.

2. Word & Spirit

Biblical depth. Doctrinally strong. Courageous on controversial issues. Traditional, in the right sense. Prophetic. Creative (forward thinking, in the right sense). Presence of God inviting/pursuing. Encouraging of spiritual gifts.

3. Diversity & Unity

All ages, ethnicities and income represented and mixing. Strong togetherness for the gospel.

4. Family & City

People look out for each other. You can be real and don’t have to wear a mask. We eat together regularly. Authentic and infectious fellowship. Strategic location. Compassionate heart towards those in need. Sacrificially present to seek the prosperity of the city.
