Gateways Church Services

Sunday Morning @ Church Street will resume on 31 May

This is Pentecost Sunday and I believe is significant this year. We will have more information for you around the middle of next week once we have completed our planning and preparation to comply with the new restrictions. While we CAN meet, we choose to be wise about HOW we do this. – David Tweed (Senior Leader)

About us

We’ve always been a “gateway church” for God’s purposes.

Our view of His Kingdom has always extended beyond the walls of our church and the limits of our human abilities and resources.

Since very early in our history, leaders in our fellowship have initiated and been involved in ministries and projects that have impacted our city, our nation and the nations of the world.

Gateways is a multigenerational and ethnically diverse congregation where people join together to worship God and seek His purpose for their lives.

We are a community committed to growth in worship, fellowship, equipping and missions.

We are a Spirit filled church, associated with the New Life Churches of New Zealand.

If you have any queries relating to the material on this site, please let us know. We would love to have you join us in a service.

If you are ever in our area, please feel free to drop in at the church during the week.

Our office hours are normally 9am-1pm Monday to Friday.
