Gateway Christian Church

Type: Church

Affiliations and accreditations

Gateway Christian Church is an independent Christian Church affiliated with the Evangelical Alliance.  We are based in the Hampden Park area of Eastbourne.

Gateway Christian Church is a group of enthusiastic Christians who meet together in Hampden Park, Eastbourne.  We seek to be led and empowered by the Holy Spirit and are committed on a journey to fulfil our Vision, Values, and Purpose, as individuals and as a church.

Our vision is to be a church which connects with, and positively impacts, its community, being a place of safety, healing, wholeness and hope, where people encounter God as we demonstrate to them His love and, as a result, where lives, and relationships, are transformed.

We are real people, we are not perfect, and we do make mistakes, but we are a strong church growing in our relationships with each other and with our community.

We are a multigenerational church, where people of all ages meet, and grow, together and where visitors are welcomed into an enjoyable, safe and homely environment.  Hence, we host many activities for people of all ages including: baby, toddler, children and youth groups; life, study and prayer groups; social groups; and much more.

We are committed to demonstrating God's love to all people and to sharing our hope in Jesus Christ with our generation.  We seek to be a blessing to our community.

Our name, ‘Gateway’, comes from Genesis 28:17b, “What an awesome place this is! It is none other than the house of God, the very gateway to heaven!”
