about us

In 1925, twenty-one followers of Jesus gathered on the site of what would become our church building at Alder Road. Their vision: "To build a chapel, usual or convenient for carrying on the work of a Christian Church."

1925 feels a world away now, but we are still committed to telling the story of what Jesus has done for us in our local community, across Poole and Bournemouth, and to the ends of the earth.

Gateway church is part of the Advance movement of churches which exists to plant and strengthen churches around the world. We also work closely with other churches in BCP.


We are very optimistic about the future of the church! We believe Jesus is building his church. There are times when the church suffers apparent setbacks, but because God's plan is to display his multi-coloured wisdom and glory through the church (Ephesians 3:10,21) we are confident that the church has a brilliant future. This means we are full of faith about what Jesus is doing at Gateway, and together we want to step into all that he has planned for us. Why not come with us?!
