In early 2005, Jon and Angela Colyer felt the leading of the Lord to leave their home in Canada and move to the West Midlands and plant a church. They moved to England at the end of that year and in January 2006, the dream became a reality and Gateway Christian Centre was born with the simple motto that “passion gathers here.”
Gateway began meeting at the Oldbury College of Sport (formerly Langley High School) in Moat Road, Oldbury with just a handful of people and a vision; to open a gateway for the presence and power of God to touch people’s lives, and change the spiritual climate of the region. We have a strong emphasis on worship, the Word and ministry to our children and young people. Today more than 300 people call Gateway home and we give God all the glory for the things He has done.
Gateway Christian Centre have ‘outgrown the tent’ where we are and God has answered prayer and we will be moving to our new premises at Kevin Way West Bromwich during the Summer of 2011 allowing Gateway to further expand and ‘affect the spiritual climate of a wider area’
