Gate ChurchThe Gate Church Community is a local church for all ages.
They call it caring about community, but actually we think it’s being church as it was intended with lots of focus on the community around us, and less on religious institutions.
We’re a great bunch who simply prefer people to programs and working to make our world closer to how God intended.
All are welcome!

Over the summer, since we often relax our schedules, we become extra thankful that being a church community isn’t limited to our programs. We like to think that we’re the kind of people who, when we say to neighbours and friends, “we’ll have to get together during the summer,” that we actually do make a point of getting together during the summer to enjoy good times together!

While we don’t want to put pressure on those times, what if scripture shows us some ways to ensure those times are meaningful? Encouraging? Enriching? Before we take a four-Sunday break, we want to invite you to consider the question with us, ‘How could Happy Hour include Jesus?’ ... See MoreSee Less

2020 has presented us with a series of unexpected road-blocks that has made navigating life a significant challenge. With the many changes and adjustments we have to make, how can we continue to find courage during the time of crisis? The book of Hebrews was written to believers in Rome who lived under the threat of persecution and the writer exhorts them to encourage one another, helping each other remember that "we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and preserve their souls" (Heb. 10:39).
Over these last 2 Sundays before our summer break, we will take time to remember that church isn't one hour on Sunday, it's who we are because of Jesus. May the Lord grant us favour to see how we can carry on being His church in many encouraging ways throughout whatever we may face during the rest of the summer. ... See MoreSee Less

David Naylor is speaking Sunday with a powerful message for us: In the people helping field, we are trained not to help people so that they change, but to help them because of their value. This shift from "so that" to "because of" is also important in our faith.
Paul teaches us in II Corinthians 5:16-21 that Christ didn't come "so that" we would change the world, but "because of" the love he has for us.
We will also recognize our graduates during our service time.
Hope to see you there! Music at 10:15, service at 11 a.m. ... See MoreSee Less
