Gateways Gathering

The Gateways Gathering brings all ages together, but is particularly focused on families with younger children. A typical afternoon together includes music, video and art and craft activities all based around a relevant Christian theme. Just turn up and bring some food to share – we all eat together at the end of the afternoon.

The Lord's Prayer

Our Father who art in heaven
Hallowed be thy name
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done
On earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive those who trespass against us
And lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil
For thine is the kingdom
The power and the glory
Forever and ever

Time To Pray

Discipleship Group

Meeting in people’s homes on alternate Tuesday evening’s, our Discipleship group offers a safe place to look deeper into the Christian life and grow together. Usually up to 15 people meet, and after refreshments we would typically look together at a passage from the Bible, as well as sharing in prayer and worship. Please contact us for the latest venue!
