Welcome to West Side Fellowship

The West Side Fellowship is a small church planted in the St Johns area of Worcester in March 2012.

For what I received I passed on as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the scriptures.
1 Corinthians 15v3-4

From the beginning our goal as a church was to be as Christ focused as possible. Our forgiveness, salvation, access to the Father are only possible through the complete work of Christ on the cross. As such our goal is to bring glory to God in thankfullness for what he has done for us through Christ. The core focus of our teaching is on seeking the Lord, listening to what God has to say to us sothat we may walk in obedience to his ways.

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.
Matthew 6v33

Putting the Kingdom of God first is a key part of the focus of the church with the goal to have the same devotion to the Lord as we see in the early church. As such church life centres around teaching, fellowship, the breaking of bread and prayer (Acts 2v42), that as a church we would grow in maturity and bring glory to the name of Jesus.

Our vision is to see each member finding their place in the body of Christ and allowing their ministry to be developed.

As well as a desire to see people come to a knowledge of Christ locally we also have a world vision with members actively involved in ministry in Poland as well as supporting the needs of Christians in other countries.

If you would like to join us or want more information please feel free to get in touch.

Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.
John 14v1

These words spoken by Jesus so long ago are a reminder that even at times when things can seem to be a bit out of control, God is still there and if we will trust in Him, we can know His peace in the strangest of times. Trust is not easy, it means letting go and handing over control to someone else, something that many of us do not find easy, and yet there is a great peace in knowing that the Lord is in the driving seat, especially at times when we cannot see the road ahead.

Although the periods between lock downs seemed very short, it meant that for a few weeks we could meet together and also have our Christmas service. It will be a service that we will remember for many years, for although many services fade and merge in our memories over the years, a Christmas carol service when carols could not be sung will not be forgotten quickly. Instead of the well known tunes, the focus moved to the words as individuals read out their favourite verse or chorus. This allowed us to meditate on the truth and depth of the words ni a way which can often be missed when we sing. So once again it was different and there was a blessing to be had by looking to what the Lord had provided, instead of looking back to the old ways.

And she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.
Luke 2v7

Another aspect of the Christmas service was that due to the extra ventilation it was cold. Many sat wrapped up in blankets due to the cold, a discomfort, but a discomfort that Jesus was born into. He was not born into a double glazed centrally heated home, but came into this world in a draughty stable. Again it is so easy to complain rather than recognising the opportunity to have a Christmas in conditions nearer to those when Jesus was born. So often we want to understand the life of Christ but when God gives us the opportunity to share in it we are not so keen. It shows once again the unfathomable depths of sacrifice that Jesus was willing to go to in his journey to save mankind.

Now once again we move into lock down and return to the Sunday message being put online or posted through the doors of those who do not have the internet. At least we are well practised in how it all works now and although we may be separated from each other we are never separated from the Lord, if only we will look to Him.
