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, sharing His love with those around us. We come from different backgrounds, but we’re united by God’s truth.

Our Pastor

Chris joined West Cliff Baptist as Pastor in late 2019.

Having grown up in nearby Corfe Mullen and Broadstone, Chris did his theological training at Moorlands College near Christchurch.

He then joined Alderholt Chapel in North-East Dorset as part of the leadership team in 2010, first as Assistant Pastor and then more latterly as Pastor.

Following nine years at the church, he made the recent move to Westbourne to join the team at WCBC.

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!

 

You can take a look at some pictures from Chris’ induction here.

Our Leadership Team

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