There’s a simple message that we want to bring to our community, and that is that Jesus Christ is Alive and that He loves you, regardless of who you are, what you’ve done and where you’ve come from.
You don’t need to be a Christian to come to West End, we want to extend a warm welcome to come and join us with any number of services and events that we hold here at West End.
We know that everybody has difficult times in life, and as people who believe in Jesus, we believe that with His help and through prayer that God can do all things in our lives. We want to celebrate your good times with you and support you through friendship and prayer in your bad times.
God bless you always
From all at West End
are always welcome
So… How are you doing with your New Years Resolution(s)… We’re now in February and how well have you kept to your plans for a better you?
Sometimes it’s helpful when we fail to look at what everyone else is doing… and so long as we do better than the friend who’s doing really bad at their diet… Well it makes us feel good. Sometimes we compare ourselves to our friends, family, people on TV or in magazines and we wish that we could have their lives, because they’re better at things, or have more money etc.
Here’s the crux though… God doesn’t want another one of them… God wants you! And God doesn’t want you to try to be someone else because He loves you and made you to be who you are. Well… actually, He wants you to be the best version of you that you can be. He wants the best for you, and the best of you.
So stop comparing yourself to others and focus on your own life for a change, and look after yourself, be kind to yourself and stop being too harsh or critical (it’s good to stay humble, but don’t be too down about yourself). If there are things that you’re struggling with, God will help you through it (which is absolutely a cliché) but this one is true. And we are here for you too. We West End folk will be the first to tell you that we are not perfect (hard to believe, right?)… But we look out for each other, that’s what friends are for. We are here for you too because Jesus LOVES YOU!! (Yay).
