Join us every Sunday on Zoom
We’re continuing to gather every Sunday on Zoom. We’d love you to join us:
- Zoom Prayer Meeting: 9:00-9:30am
- Kids Zoom Meeting: 9:40-10:00am
- Zoom Meeting: 10:00-11:00am
We believe that Zoom offers us the best way to be the church online in this moment – helping to facilitate as many people as possible to contribute and participate. Each week we gather together at 9:00am to pray for one another, for Gateway, for Swindon, and for the nations (You can join the prayer meeting here), before we journey with our kids through the Jesus Storybook Bible at 9:40am.
Then, at 10:00am, we gather to spend a few minutes greeting and getting to know each other before spending some time in worship and singing. We then share a 10-15 minute preach from the Bible before responding in prayer and worship.

Sunday Afternoon Gatherings
We’re starting a 4:00pm gathering from Sunday 18 April to Sunday 16 May for children, young people, and families.
Our children and young people have been disproportionately affected by lockdown, and it’s been a huge challenge to engage them online through this period. Therefore, as we start to regather, we want to prioritise children, young people, and families. We’re excited about the opportunity to engage families and our desire is that we’ll catch our children and young people up into some of what we’ve been learning on Zoom over the past 6 months.
Because we’re intentionally prioritising children, young people, and families for these gatherings, please can we ask that only those with children in their household book in. You can book in here.
If you don’t have children in your household but would still like to come to the gatherings, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll come back to you nearer the time if there is space.
We’re also hosting a couple of mid-week, daytime gatherings aimed particularly at serving those who have been isolated for various reasons over the past year.
These are on Wednesday 21 April and Wednesday 05 May, both at 10:00-11:00am.
You can book into these gatherings here.
Sunday Morning In-Person Gatherings
From Sunday 23 May until at least Sunday 20 June, we’ll be meeting at 10:00am, both in-person and on Zoom. We’d love you to join us at either gathering.
We’re continuing to meet on Zoom because we’re aware that not everyone will be able to come in-person yet (whether due to space limitations or another reason) and also that not everyone will feel comfortable in slightly bigger gatherings at the moment. All the Zoom details remain the same, so see the top of this page.
Children will be able to go out to a group for a portion of the in-person gatherings, but we will be stopping both the 9:40am kids gathering on Zoom and the afternoon family gatherings from Sunday 23 May.
You will have to book into the in-person gatherings and space is limited to 100 people. You can book in here!
Connect in the week
Additionally, we regularly send things over email. If you’re not receiving our emails, it’s because you’re not in our contact list. Fill out our online Connect Card so that we can get in touch.
We’ve created a few playlists to help you and your children worship at home while we’re unable to meet together physically.
Songs We Like – Songs you may not have heard before, but we really like. It’s an eclectic mix, so not everything will be to your taste! Find the stuff you like and use that to create your own playlist! Listen on Apple Music or Spotify.
Songs For Kids – Songs that might help you engage with your kids in worship. Some songs may be favourites from kids groups on a Sunday morning, and some may be new, but we hope your children can dance and sing along with them! Listen on Apple Music or Spotify.
