WGBC was dedicated 3rd February 1882. The church was planted by Charles Haddon Spurgeon. Before the church was built, services were held in a barn, which was part of farm land in the Green of Willesden.
WGBC a multigenerational, multicultural congregation is located at the heart of a busy culturally diverse community in Willesden High Road in North West London, in the Borough of Brent. Neighbouring churches being the Anglican, Catholic and New Testament denominations. WGBC reflects its surroundings by being of multicultural membership made up of mainly Caribbean, African, Caucasians -mixture of British and European nationals, Filipinos, Brazilians and worshippers of other nationalities. We are a people who seek to fulfil our Christian call as indicated by our strap line ‘Building a people of Praise, Purpose and Power’.
We unashamedly affirm our inability to be who God wants us to be and what He wants us to do with the help of His Spirit living and working in us. As this is what being a Christian truly means we live daily not just for ourselves but for a greater purpose; living to love God and serve His people despite our limitations and challenges. ‘Building a people of Praise, Purpose and Power’ is our lifelong ambition.

Pastor Akin writes: “As the nation returns to full activities after the Covid-19 restrictions, it is a time for deep reflection over the loss of members, families and friends. It is also an opportunity to give thanks to God and bless His name for His mercies and grace during the trying days. So we will be reflecting on some of the biblical doxologies – glorious praises of God.
This Sunday, 20 June 2021, is Fathers’ Day and a Communion Service.
The theme for the service is “The God of stability“

This indeed has been one of the most trying times for many of us especially at WGBC. However, we praise God the Father of Our Lord Jesus Christ who had kept us alive to tell the stories of our deliverance.
Therefore, I want to thank you specially on behalf of our leaders for your collective responses to our bereaved families. I also want to encourage and challenge us to be more compassionate, upholding and speaking the truth in love. Be careful with what we hear, say and the company we keep even on social media.
And “Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever Amen.” Hebrews 13 v20-21
However you join us, we pray you will be greatly blessed.
