We believe God has great plans for Gateway Christian Church and are seeking a full-time Minister who, under God, can continue to progress our calling to be a multigenerational church which blesses its community.

Ideally, we are looking for a Spirit-filled, visionary, and inspirational leader, with a pastoral heart. Someone who can lead effectively within our team-based leadership structure, harnessing, building upon and developing the skills of other leaders. Also, someone who can connect well with the considerable diversity of people inside our church and in our community.

Someone who can lead effectively within our team-based leadership structure, harnessing, building upon and developing the skills of other leaders. Also, someone who can connect well with the considerable diversity of people inside our church and in our community.

Gateway Christian Church is formed from two churches called by God to do a ‘new thing’ (Isaiah 43: 18-19a) in a deprived area of Eastbourne. They combined, selling, or demolishing, their own buildings to create The Gateway Centre, which opened in February 2016.

Our name, ‘Gateway’, comes from Genesis 28:17b, “What an awesome place this is! It is none other than the house of God, the very gateway to heaven!”

We are a multi-generational church where people of all ages find a home. Around a quarter of our church of about 200 regular attenders are under twenty years old and we are developing strong connections with unchurched children, young people and their families. Hence, our appointment of a full-time Youth & Children Leader who started in October 2017.

Our vision is to connect with, and positively impact, our needy community and be a place of safety, healing, wholeness and hope, where people’s encounter with God’s love will transform lives and relationships; a true house of God and Gateway to heaven.

We aim to bless our community by demonstrating God's love to all people and by sharing our hope in Jesus Christ with our generation.

Gateway is a work in progress. We are constantly developing as we seek to fulfil God’s vision for us in our community. For more information about Gateway, see our website www.gatewaychristianchurch.org.uk.

Please apply ONLY using our application form which, along with an information pack, can be downloaded from www.gatewaychristianchurch.org.uk/jobs.htm.

For further information or if you have any queries at all, please contact Terry Boatwright, Chair of the Oversight, on terry@gatewaychristianchurch.org.uk.

Closing date: 5pm Friday 26th January 2018
