For the Community

From the Gateway Centre, we run a number of services for the benefit of the wider community.


CAP Debt Advice

We partner with the award-winning national charity Christians Against Poverty (CAP) to deliver a free debt advice service to those struggling with unmanageable debt. Our Debt Coach Jackie Adie works with individuals and families to support them out of debt. For more information you can visit the CAP website or call 0800 328 0006.

York Foodbank

Each Monday we partner with York Foodbank to run a distribution session - providing emergency food to local people in crisis, as well as a welcoming place to sit and talk with members of our team. Individuals with a Foodbank voucher can redeem it for 3 days of food between 11am and 1pm each Monday.

To learn more about York Foodbank, or to find out how you can donate food, please visit their website.


The Atrium

The Atrium is open from 10am until 2pm on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays for anyone to come along and connect with other people and enjoy simple food and drink together.

We have lots of crafts, games and activities on offer, as well as toys for toddlers and babies.

Our quiet space is also open throughout the day, where you are welcome to join us for reflective sessions at 10am, 12noon and 2pm.

Acomb Babies

A group run by Gateway Church for non-mobile babies and their parents/carers.

Join us on Monday mornings from 10.30am to 11.30pm at the Gateway Centre for an opportunity to meet and connect with other new parents. No booking is necessary.

We look forward to meeting you and your baby!



Young people in school years 7 to 13 are welcome to join our Friday night youth group, which takes place at the Gateway Centre from 7 to 9pm during term time.

There’s fun, games, food, worship and teaching - all designed to help you explore your relationship with God.
