Our history begins in the early 1960’s. Mightily impacted by the Charismatic Renewal, we became known as Awapuni Christian Fellowship, then as we experienced considerable growth, we moved to the centre of town and became known as Christian Centre.

In 1984 we purchased our Church Street property and took on our original legal name, Palmerston North Christian Fellowship. After a decadeĀ of transition from the late 1990’s to 2009 we adopted a new name for a new season, Gateways Christian Fellowship, commonly referred to as Gateways.
