We don't know how you are feeling during the COVID-19 pandemic but one of the things we are missing most is all being able to meet all together in person. Whether we meet together in person or online we want you to know what to expect when you join with us.
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.
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 public gathering 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.
This has been made harder in our online meetings but we are working on how we can increase our fellowship time.
