Westhouse Methodist Church

Tonight, I had the privilege of visiting Westhouse Methodist, located in a small village between Ingleton and Kirkby Lonsdale. They’re clearly a warm fellowship with a love of sound Bible preaching. In the morning service, they are full, and their evening turn out would be the envy of many churches.

For a small, rural church like Martin Top, one might be forgiven for thinking that the church can never grow. After all, it’s surrounded by fields, not houses. The local transport links are sporadic. No-one wants to worship in an old chapel any more.

Well Westhouse have debunked these myths, and I came away feeling encouraged.

In Matthew 16:18, Jesus said "I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it.” God will build up His church regardless of its location.
