Welcome to the online home of Gateway Freedom Church, Harlow. There’s lots here to explore – news, information about future events and much more. We hope you will be a regular visitor, in particular please feel free to leave feedback, check out what events are coming soon, send us your own stories and enjoy listening from our teaching & sermon archive.
Our worship service on Sunday mornings from 10.30am aims to provide a warm welcome with an informal and family-friendly place where people can worship God together, find out more about following Jesus and enjoy fellowship with each other.
Although we can’t meet in person at the moment due to government restrictions, you can still enjoy the word and worship wherever you are online. Here’s the pick of latest uploads:
Gateway is a friendly, loving, generous, nurturing community where God’s word is brought to life through Holy Spirit inspired preaching. We have found it to be a place where there is the freedom to be real and honest with God and one another and it is joyous to be part of.
Gateway provides a non-judgemental atmosphere where everyone can come and worship openly. As you enter the centre you are overwhelmed by the awesome presence of the Almighty God.
The feeling of family is tangible and is the initial attraction of this church. You then begin to realise how connected the church is to the community and other churches. The quality of preaching, built on the backbone of the Holy Spirit and discipleship internationally, is awe inspiring.
What a breath of fresh air to come into a church where freedom is given to the Holy Spirit to lead inspiring times of worship, provide encouraging teaching, warm fellowship and to lead house groups. And then the icing on the cake is having leading ministries from around the world coming to this church to add their own impartation to this mix.
We came to Gateway dry and very tired. We have found love, care and wonderful fellowship. We particularly enjoy the freedom Gateway gives to the Holy Spirit - which takes nerve and security. I have joined the Spirit Cafe team, and find this stretching but enormously rewarding. We are now co-leading a life group, and feel we have found our home!
It’s really great to be part of a church family that care about your spiritual maturity, and actively encourage you to develop in your journey to become more like Christ.
I thank God for letting me be part of the Gateway family. Here I have truly experienced the love and peace of God and His wonderful freedom on my journey of faith, walked out in the company of some amazing people.
This is not a church who assembles people only on a Sunday morning, but it works beyond, and together with Life Groups it helps to make disciples like Jesus intended.
This church has some incredible speakers, from the leadership to people all over the world. Great teaching and fellowship!
I have found Gateway to be a real Christian family in action... I felt like I had come home when I first walked through the doors.
The Gateway Centre has an amazing atmosphere of peace and many needs have been met. We enjoy so many of the various activities and meetings where we meet people from all walks of life and differing ages.
Brian’s Freedom Files blog is intended as a place for reflections about living the Christian life in general, about things I bump into as a Church leader, and about what it means to live in freedom, with our hearts healed up.
