Our History

Church by the Bay is a church 'plant' from Moorlands Church in Lancaster. In the summer of 2010, a team of people from Moorlands who lived in the Morecambe area led by Assistant Pastor Gerry Straker were freed up to start planning and praying.  Church by the Bay began formally on Sunday 11th September 2011 we started meeting on Sunday mornings as a distinct church. We currently meet at Westgate Primary School.

Over almost ten years, Church by the Bay has doubled in size and brilliantly we've had the joy of new people becoming Christians. God has given us a building, 91 Balmoral Road for a Church office, Bible studies, Church lunches, training meetings, Dads group, Pop up Cafe and events, so that we can tell people about Jesus and train people to live for and help others to know Him too.

We are praying that God will be pleased to grow His Church here in the years to come.
