Elders and Deacons

Gateway Church is led by a team of elders and deacons.

Elder is the Bible's term for those who give oversight and spiritual direction to the local church. Deacons are those who are recognised by the church as servant-hearted leaders.


The work of the church is supported by a great staff team who fulfil a range of roles varying from a few hours per week to full-time.


The trustees are legally responsible for the governance of Gateway Church, and ensure that we comply with all of our legal and financial obligations.

Lifegroup Leaders

Lifegroups form an important part of what we do as a church. Our lifegroup leaders host and lead small groups meeting regularly in homes across the city of York.

Ministry Leaders

Gateway has various ministries serving the church and the local comunity. Each ministry team is led by a team leader who takes responsibility for that area of church life.
