Visiting a church for the first time can be a nerve-racking experience.

Here’s a list of Frequently Asked Questions to help make a visit to Westville Presbyterian Church that little bit easier.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you’re planning to come to our Westville Presby Church service on Sunday mornings, kids join us in the main church hall for the beginning of our service that begins at 10:00. We suggest arriving a bit earlier to find a parking space and walk to our building. Our Help Team are ready to greet visitors from 09:30am onwards, so we would love you to arrive early if you can.

It’s hard to give an exact time, as our songs and talk lengths can vary from week to week, but our services generally last an hour and a quarter, however we’d love you to stick around longer for a coffee so we can get to know you (and so you can get to know us!)

Our pastor preaches from the Bible. This means we open up the Bible before every talk, hear it read, and then hear the pastor explain it and apply it. We usually work through books of the Bible, looking at a small section week by week, but we sometimes hear about what the Bible says about particular topics. Every so often we have a guest preacher who might give a talk outside of our regular preaching series. The pastor also aims to be more interactive and provide the opportunity for you to participate. 

Absolutely! We have many families attending Westville Presby Church. Each Sunday morning Westville Presby Kids runs for the duration of our “adult” service. Unsure where to take your children when you arrive? Just let them join you in the main church hall for the first part of the service!

We also run a supervised crèche for children 18 months and older. This is open from 09:50 am onwards. There are volunteers looking after the crèche each morning. You are welcome to leave your child with them (they’ll send you a text if your child does not settle), but you are also free to stay with your child in crèche.
