(AKA Pastor Wez)

James Wesley (Wez) - Senior Pastor

Hi, this is me. Pastor Wez, also known as Uncle Wez. I will admit, it was never my dream to be a Pastor. I avoided it. But here I am. You just cannot outrun God. I believe in honesty, trust, and faithfulness. 

I am a tradesman (Vehicle Body Builder) and I studied Ministry in a previous life. Then went on to do a Business Degree and currently into my Masters JD. Along with being a Pastor I work full time in a secular job. I would love to meet you all sometime.

Angela Jeffers - Associate Pastor 

Angela is a wife, mum and grandmother, and loves church!  A Hills local, she has called EastGate home since 2001 and loves to meet new people and find out what makes them ‘tick’.  Angela has a longing to see people healed of their sicknesses, whether physical or emotional, so that they can live life to the full.

Nanette is many things to many people, but first and foremost she is a beloved child of God.
