Church Life

Ultimately, being a part of a local church is about creating and developing relationships with other members of the church family. There are all kinds of ways that this can happen informally and we love to see this happen. Below are some of the more formal ways that we connect with one another.

Lifegroups

Lifegroups are small groups of 8-12 people meeting in people's homes across the city of York. Lifegroups form the backbone of our church community, enabling people to connect on a deeper level in a small group. We believe that transformation happens in the context of relationships, and Lifegroups are a great place to learn and grow together. Email Christine Hobson if you're interested in joining one.

Children's Work

We are passionate about children at Gateway. Our heart is to see them grow up with a genuine relationship with Jesus, and we love to see them play an active part in church life. We provide several activities and groups through the week for children and families. In this unusual season, our children's work is constantly shifting as restrictions change. Contact our Children's Work Team Leader, Sarah Hogben, for up-to-date details.

Youth Work

We have an excellent team of people who come alongside young people as they navigate their way through the challenges of life. Our activities for young people are adapting to current restrictions. Contact our Youth Work Team Leader, Laura Crane, for more details.

Connect

If you’re new to the church, we hope you feel welcome amongst us. You may have been joining us on a Sunday for a while and have started going along to a Lifegroup. Once you feel like you're beginning to establish good connections with other people, you may be interested in Connect. Hosted by Caleb Ellwood over two evenings (currently online), Connect is an opportunity to learn more about our Distinctives as a church family and hear about what it means to be recognised as a Member of Gateway Church. If you would like join us, details of the next Connect will appear on the Events page.
