Our Team

Meet the West Cliff Team!

Our church is made up of a group of people committed to serving God in our local community of Westbourne. We come from different backgrounds but are united in our love for God, as together we seek to share Jesus with those around us. If you’d like to get in touch with any of us, please do so via the ‘Contact us’ page.

Our Pastor

Chris joined West Cliff Baptist as Pastor in late 2019.

Having graduated from Moorlands College, he spent nine years on the leadership team at Alderholt Chapel on the Dorset/Hampshire border, before making the move to Westbourne. Chris leads the life and ministry of the church, and has a passion for the church reaching its community relevantly with the gospel.

Outside of church, Chris enjoys football, running, golf, and music, all of which he attempts to keep up with, by his own admission with varying levels of success!

Our Leadership Team

In addition to our pastor, our church leadership team is currently made up of 4 deacons and a leadership support role.
