Explore City Gates...
Were you one of the founding members of City Gates from either Ichthus or YWAM?
Did you live in the Gatehouse on Oxford Street or worship with us at Blore Court?
Perhaps you joined us as a student when we met at the Comedy Store?
In 2015 we celebrated 30 years of City Gates, and literally thousands of people have passed through our doors over that time. If you were part of it, join City Gates Alumni!
City Gates has always been a 'sending' church, and we were so pleased recently when it was noted that no less than eight City Gates alumni have stepped in to formal church leadership roles. There are also countless others who are ministering in other ways - both in the UK and around the world.
The Alumni currently exists as a Facebook Page. Please do also sign up to our City Gates Alumni mailing list, and we'll do our best to keep you up to speed with our latest news.

ESCAPE to THE COUNTRY
Come camping in our very own 10-acre wood! Our small group for young adults (aka “Y Gate”) is hosting a weekend retreat in the Kent countryside. Think walks, outdoor pursuits and marshmallows in the fire. There’s even a hotel option if you really need that hot bath :-)
GET STUCK IN!
Join City Gates, and you’ll soon discover that we’re a busy bunch. Whether you love teaching English or have a heart for the homeless, we have lots of exciting ministry options. Many of these are based in Soho - the epicentre of London’s fashion, media, shopping and entertainment worlds. If you’re more musical, think about joining one of our worship bands. There is also a growing range of Small Groups centred around particular locations and interests
The Living Room is our cafe and meeting space in the heart of London’s West End. Nestled between sex shops and shisha bars, it doubles as a base for our many outreach initiatives and community projects.
Following a major refurbishment, the venue is now fully open, serving teas, coffees, light meals and snacks. Our ongoing hope is that The Living Room is an expression of church that is attractive and comfortable to all.
