Serving together

God gives people to serve His church and He gives them gifts to achieve that.  

He empowers us all to work together, as a very mixed group, to help every believer grow into all that God has designed them to be. 

From among the members, He calls certain men to be elders, to ‘pastor/shepherd’ the church – through teaching, caring and having oversight (Acts 20:17-38, Tit 1:5-9, 1 Tim 3:1-7, 1 Pet 5:1-4). 

We then have superb deacons, serving in a multitude of ways, as well as ministry leaders and Life Group leaders. 

We also have paid staff who enable the regular goings on across the church. 

Our trustees play the invaluable role of giving us a wealth of professional and practical insight and experience, particularly for staffing, finance and premises hire. 

We also receive encouragement and strength from our wider family in Commission, particularly from  Malcolm Kayes, on behalf of the UK leadership team.

Elders

We currently have 7 elders (also known as pastors), who are responsible before God for the overall welfare of the church. They have been recognised by the church and appointed (with input from Commission) to provide oversight and care for those who are committed members of Westminster Chapel.

Each elder will also have a number of assigned areas of ministry that they particularly oversee.

To send a message to the whole elder group, please email .

Deacons

Our deacons are men and women who have faithfully shown themselves to love and serve the church in numerous ways. They bring incredible experience and insight to our church decision-making and direction. 

The elders and the deacons meet regularly to discuss and discern the health of the church.
