Gateway Church Swindon is one church that meets across two sites. Together we share one vision.


PLEASE NOTE – We’re meeting at 4pm on Sunday 09 September, and not at our usual time.

Gateway East is the newer of our two sites, having launched in January 2017, and is a vibrant and diverse community.

Our meetings last around 90 minutes and are relaxed and informal. We worship God together, share communion and give time for a talk, applying the truth of the Bible to daily life. We translate our meetings into Nepalese (via headsets).

We love children and young people and provide great activities for those aged 2-11 in a safe environment each week. Our young people (aged 11-18) also meet once a month and there is a parent-led room for children aged 0-2, with refreshments.

We want you to feel welcome and comfortable during your time with us. At the end of the meeting, we’d love you to stay for tea and coffee – it’s a great opportunity to chat, meet others from the church and find out more about us.

We look forward to seeing you!

If you’re visiting for the first time, look out for someone from our Host Team who will be wearing a hi-vis jacket. They’ll direct you to a parking space* and point you to the entrance, which is located by the bright yellow flags.

At the entrance, you’ll be given a warm welcome from a member of our Host Team who will help make you feel at home. If you’d like, they’ll give you a Welcome Pack with more information about Gateway.
