Plan a visit
Here at Westway Community Church, we believe that belonging to a local Church Family is an important part of our faith. We also understand that it can be daunting to someone new. Please have a look at what a usual Sunday is like for us, to help you plan a visit with us.
We can't wait to see you soon!
What can I expect when I arrive?
Coming to a new place can be a daunting experience, however, at Westway Community Church we would like to make your visit with us an enjoyable time as you possibly consider becoming part of our family.
Below we have tried to answer any questions that you may have about what a Sunday looks like for us.
We can't wait to meet you!
Where are we?
We are based in the Western Suburbs of Gqeberha (formally Port Elizabeth) at 7 Woltemade Street in Kabega Park.
What time do we meet?
Our service starts at 09h00, however, you are more than welcome to come earlier and have a cup of filter coffee and meet some of our team that serves on a Sunday morning.
Where do I park?
As you drive through our main gate, you will see the parking area in front of you. Should this area be filled there is additional parking available on the grass area next to the parking area.
if you have people in the car with you please feel free to drop them off at front of the church while you find parking.
The main gate is closed during the service so your car is safe. However, if you are running slightly late, don't stress as one of our security team who is watching the cameras will let you in.
Where do I go once I have parked?
Once you have parked, please come to the front entrance of the church, where we can't wait to meet you. Our friendly volunteers at the door can also answer any questions you may have or guide you in the right direction.
If you have kids with you, please can you sign them in at the door, you can ask one of the volunteers to assist you,.
How long is the service?
Our service starts at 09h00 and is generally an hour and a half long. If there is a special event or service we may take a few extra minutes.
What is the worship like?
We are truly privileged to have an amazing group of people that lead us in worship. Our time of worship is not only singing songs that have been thoughtfully chosen but includes times of prayer, testimony and family. You may ask what style of music we sing, well it can be anything from contemporary to a hymn that has been jazzed. Once in a while we also add a few songs from different languages in our worship time.
Is there something for my kids?
We love having kids of all ages in our service with us. at the back of the Church, you will find some couches that are specifically for our parents with small kids. We also have a parents' room where you can also take your child should you wish.
The kids leave us just after the worship to head over to Kids Church which is run in our Pre-School. So what we are saying is yes there is definatly a place for your kids and we love having young people as part of our family.
What kind of message will I hear?
Barry is our Senior Pastor who preaches on most Sundays. However, we are blessed to have a group of gifted teachers that do sometimes preach as well.
The message that you hear will be Biblical (we very seldomly preach topically) and thought-provoking and challenging as we strive to be a Gospel-Centre, Christ-Focused, Mission-Determined Family.
