Welcome Home!

We are a community of people who are in process. We have imperfect messy lives, but we are pursuing and experiencing a transforming relationship with Jesus and with each other. Everybody is welcome here, whatever your story, your questions, doubts or struggles. We’re about doing life together in community, being intentional about our growth as people and serving one another and our wider community along the way.

Come As You Are


Every Sunday

You don’t have to dress up. You don’t have to be any particular type of person. City Gates is a place where God meets people.


A community of Faith, Hope, and Love.

We strive to be a community where we learn to love God with all we have and where we love our neighbour as ourselves. It is where we learn to care and share, to challenge and support, to confide and confess, to forgive and be forgiven, to laugh and weep, to be accountable to each other, to watch over each other, to be servants together.
It is the place of transformation.

Play here a statement about our vision, the church, and the people we strive to be.

FAITH is believing that this world is not how God intended it to be and that this is not how God intends it to remain.
We believe that the Gospel, in its very essence, is a message of HOPE to a world with too much despair.
We believe that it is our purpose to tell people, that whatever happened, whatever they did, whatever you did, whatever your story – LOVE wins.
