Welcome to the UK!
Chapel has always been a family of all sorts of people. No matter where you’re from, what you’re wearing, how many tattoos you’ve got (or don’t), whoever you voted for (and even if you didn’t), we’d love to connect with YOU.
Being a diverse church made up of people from all over the world with different backgrounds, we know what it’s like to step into a new country and have the desire to find community. We want to do our best to help you do just that.
London is a city teeming with diversity, history, vibrance and natural beauty that creates great opportunities for authentic relationships, genuine growth and unexpected life-shaping encounters.

Westminster Chapel is an evangelical church in Westminster, central London. The congregation was formed in 1840 and is part of the international family of Commission churches.
We meet every Sunday at 11am for a short service that includes worship, preaching, prayer and sharing of good news stories. Right now our services are held in person and online where there is live chat every 11am on Sundays. To view our past services, you can check out the sermons section of our website or our YouTube channel. We run all sorts of groups and courses and things going on for 18-30s, families and 30s+.
We’d love to meet you through a phone or video call and answer any questions you may have about Westminster Chapel.
“My name is Cindy. Both my husband and I were originally from Hong Kong too!
I have been living and working in London since I graduated decades ago! I have two grown-up children. My family of four have very diverse interests and hobbies. Thank God that we share the same faith and love for Hong Kong!
If I could be of any help, I am very happy to share with you my journey, my church and work life. I hope you will find a spiritual home here and get to settle down soon.”
The Wongs moved to London from Canada in 2019 and have experienced first-hand what it’s like to settle into a new city.
As 2nd-generation Canadian-born Chinese with parents originally from Hong Kong, Ray & Gen have close ties to Hong Kong culture, values, and very importantly — food!
Settling in London meant navigating different approaches to finding housing, using public transportation, and schooling for the kids. Since arriving in London, they’ve learned to re-create some familiar flavours like, 蛋撻, 港式奶茶, 义燒包, and 干炒牛河 using ingredients commonly available from a Tesco or Sainsbury’s (local supermarkets).
Both Ray and Gen serve on the Westminster Chapel staff team: Ray is the Executive Pastor, and Gen leads the Christians Against Poverty Debt Centre.
