Message from the pastor

Launched in January 2018, Kingfisher Westgate is a church that seeks to reach out and bring the Gospel to people who are far from God, who are struggling in their lives, with mental health issues, with addictions and with other, related issues. Everyone is welcome at Kingfisher Westgate, and we have had the joy of seeing the church more than double in size, from the original team of 18 people, as it attracts many who would never normally fit into or feel at home in a local church. The church meets in a Victorian-style tea room called Chuckaboos, which is located at 52, Westgate Street, Gloucester, GL1 2NF.

 Traditional ‘sermons’ are replaced by more interactive times of people questioning issues of faith and the music is contemporary and guitar-led, with a mixture of new songs and traditional hymns. The service lasts for an hour, starting at 11am each Sunday morning, and bacon rolls, coffee and tea are served from 10.45am.

As one young person said recently as she wandered into church, still drunk from the night before: ‘I don’t go to church and I didn’t even know that this was a church, but my life is a complete mess and I need Jesus’.

Yes she does, and Kingfisher Westgate is just the place to come and find Him!

James Burn – Senior Pastor, Kingfisher Church

First Steps

If you’re interested in getting connected at our church or involved in the life of the church, then consider these first steps.


For those that are curious about the Christian faith and what we believe we run regular enquirers courses of you to come and meet people, eat good food and hear some answers to your questions.


If you’ve just got to know Jesus we have a foundations course which is run as part of our Connect Groups or individually which gives a really solid grounding in the in and outs of why we do what we do. Why pray? Why do we worship together? Why do we tithe?


There are many ways to get involved. Here are four of them:

1) Come to a worship service on the weekend.

2) Look into joining a Connect Group, and get to know some great people.

3) Come join us in any of our social activities throughout the year!

4) Find an opportunity to serve, here, near or far.
