The Story

We are the West Family and this blog tells the story of our journey to start a new Church community in North West London.  Our mission is to help connect Jesus to people, people to community, and community to mission.

We (Thomas and Elizabeth) have been married 10 years and have two (Perry Elizabeth is 6 and Shepherd is 3).  Raleigh, North Carolina was our home for our whole married life and we love it.  We both grew in Montgomery, Alabama.  We started dating in high school and the rest is history. 
After studying at Auburn University (War Eagle!) we moved to North Carolina for Thomas to pursue his Masters and then PhD at Southeastern Seminary. Thomas served served at Providence Church, as the College then Discipleship Pastor, for seven years.  During that season God started to give us a new desire...a new dream: to move to London to start a new Church community with a few of our friends.
We have been living in London for sic months and really love it.  We are so excited about this adventure and really feel the immensity of it.  This is big!  We built a team of people to pray with us, support us financially, and to even move with us to London.  Now, we're learning about life in one of the most amazing cities in the world.

We are continuing to build a team of supporters who want to invest in this journey in a variety of ways.  We are excited to share our journey with you right here.  We will be sharing family updates and the highs and lows of starting a new Church community, weekly on the blog.  Please subscribe and follow along!
We would love to have you partner with us in this journey!  Read on and enjoy!

We're on holiday and having a wonderful time together. We got away to slow down and connect as a family. One of the specific things we wanted to work through was how this last year of life has affected each of us and our family as a whole. So, we've had a lot of conver...

We just celebrated our first Christmas in London. We were able to slow down as a family and have a really good week together. To make things really special we were able to spend some time with friends. We are grateful to God for the gift of His Son. Here's a little mor...

November 27, 2019

Last week was made a lot sweeter - and bearable - by having our beloved Susu in town with us. Thomas took the train out of London for a network retreat, Shepherd recovered from the lurgy, and we hosted some dear friends from Toronto. It's hard to believe we're into Tha...

Let's be honest: it's getting darker, cooler, damper all faster than we expected. This last week, we were a little iffy about it all. Hopefully it's some routine and healthy tensions finally setting in...and some helpful perspective with it. Shepherd is sick and we're...

We didn't post an update last week and this being the first one in two weeks makes it our first one in a "fortnight." The Wests came over for a visit, Thomas stumbled onto the school PTA, and we've had all the weather. Here's a brief update about all that's going on...
