At The Gateway Church, we value the opportunity to have extended time together where we can talk about real life issues, dig deeper into the Bible and pray for one another. Gateway Groups are an excellent way to do this. There is plenty of time to hang out, drink lots of tea and coffee and catch up with friends. We spend most of our time discussing how we can grow in our faith and how to live a Christ-like life. We also give time to prayer, allowing the Holy Spirit to minister through one another. Our aim in these groups is to hear from God and support one another as we live in obedience to what He is saying to us.
