Andrew Coats has been a pastor for approximately 28 years.

He trained at the Baptist Theological College in Johannesburg, South Africa

Prior to this present church he was a pastor of the Baptist Church on the Island of St Helena, in the South Atlantic Ocean for just over 8 years.                                                     


His ministry at Westover Free Church commenced in July 1998

His teaching ministry comprises consecutive expository preaching through a book of the Bible. Occasionally a different topic or verse is studied which provides some variation. It is thought that this is the best way of teaching the 'whole council of God'
