Church of England Diocese of Canterbury St. James Westgate

About Us

We are a Bible-teaching, evangelical, Anglican church on the western side of Margate

We are a growing church that exists by God's grace

We seek to introduce people to Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who calls us to repent of our sins and to put our trust in him

We long to reach our local community with the gospel - the good news - depending on Jesus as our Saviour and Lord

We want to know Jesus and make him known

We believe that God the Father is able to save sinners by bringing them from death to eternal life

We rejoice that whomever turns from sin (repents) and entrusts their life to God's Son, Jesus, will be saved

We submit to the Holy Spirit, looking for transformation in every area of our lives

We believe that God saves sinners like us to form his church and is equipping us to serve him

We meet to build one another up in our shared faith as we gather to worship Jesus

We worship him with our lives as we submit to the authoritative teaching of God's word, the Bible

We understand that God chooses to use his church to proclaim the good news of hope of eternal life

We welcome everyone from any denomination or background

We believe that the 39 Articles of Religion (the Church of England's foundational summary of Christian doctrine), along with the historic creeds, are an excellent expression of fundamental Christian truths
