The best way to explore what our community is like is by visiting us in person. One of the ways you can do this is by joining us at our Sunday Gatherings. These are open to all and are held at Excelsior Academy, Denton Road, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE15 7HB. For information on how to get there click here. The meeting starts at 10:30am but why not arrive a little earlier and join us for a cuppa and meet some people from Gateway. Refreshments are served from 10:10am.
On Sundays we meet at...
Newcastle Upon Tyne,
To find us come in through the Sports Entrance which you can see in the picture on the right.

An open welcome
Sometimes we think we need to get 'cleaned up' before we attend church. At Gateway we invite you to come as you are. This is not a place to put on your best Sunday face. It's a place to come and connect with God in an authentic way.
A place for the whole family
Bring the kids! We value children as part of our community. The vision of our children's ministry is centred around making disciples of young people, that they would know God and love Him with all their heart, soul, mind and strength. If you'd like to know more about our kids' work and what's available for your children, please follow this link to Kingdom Kids.
A time of Worship
Our time of worship is an opportunity to praise God and pray in the way you feel comfortable, worshipping Him because He is worthy.
A teaching from the bible
God wants us to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. He wants us to learn about His ways and align ourselves with His will for the earth. As a community we want to become more like Jesus. For these reasons our teaching is always Bible based, challenging and applicable to our lives. Occasionally we break into smaller groups to process how we may apply the message to our lives. If you're new to Gateway and this fills you with dread - fear not! You are free to listen and observe. You can contribute whenever you feel ready.
Communion AND SHARING
On the first Sunday of the month we share in communion together. We eat the bread and drink the wine to remember and proclaim the Lord's death. If you love Jesus, you are welcome to share in communion with us. If you're not ready to partake in communion, we invite you to sit and observe. On this Sunday, instead of having a message shared by one person, we gather in a circle and allow God to speak through a number of individuals as the Spirit gives prompting.
At the beginning and the end of our service we have a time of fellowship together with refreshments. This is a great time to meet new people and chat. If you'd like to receive prayer, we'd love to pray for you during the fellowship time.
