Each week we gather at 10:00am for our Sunday service.
Here are a few questions that you may have about what to expect.
What are services like?
On your way in you will be greeted by our service hosts, they can answer any questions you may have. As you walk into the sanctuary you can grab a coffee or tea and then head in and find a seat.
Our services begin with lively praise and worship led by our worship team. Don’t worry if the songs are new to you, the words are on screen for you to follow along. This is a great time to connect with God through worship.
We generally include time for announcements and offering. We often use the word ‘family’ to describe our church so expect to be warmly welcomed and see people who genuinely like to be together.
Pastor Matt, or another member at Gateway, will bring us a message straight from the Bible each week. Our sermons are normally part of a series that follow a book of the Bible or theme.
Prayer is available at every service. Prayer team members would love to pray with you for anything. Meet them infront of the stage at the end of the message.
What about my kids?
If your children are infants, a self-serve nursery is located through the door to the left of the stage; a host would love to help you find it. The whole service is live streamed in the nursery so you can see what is going on.
For toddlers, pre-school and elementary aged kids, check-in takes place in the lobby as you arrive. A sign indicates where the check-in computer is located. All children must be signed in to help us provide a safe and encouraging time for your kids.
Kidz Church begins after worship. Toddlers and pre-schoolers head downstairs for a time of learning from the Bible, activities and a snack. Older children walk with their teacher to the Kidz Church house immediately to the west of the main building. All children are picked up after service.
What should I wear?
Feel free to wear a suit or a nice dress… it will help us to know that you are new =) We generally dress casually for church, jeans and t-shirts to business casual and everywhere in between. The important thing is that we get together not what we wear.
When is communion?
We celebrate communion on the first Sunday of each month.
