In 1976 Stewart and Mairi Brunton led a small group prayer meeting that eventually birthed the fellowship in the basement of CLC bookstore, Dundee where Stewart was the manager.
The meetings continued in the family home and as the fellowship began to grow they moved to a hall used by YMCA . As the church continued growing it moved to the former Methodist building on Marketgait where it remained until 1984. The church purchased the former St Marks Building on Perth Road, Dundee where the church is based today. Originally called The Gate Christian Fellowship, in the mid 90’s the church was renamed ‘The Gate'.
In 2002 Gordon Stewart became the Lead Pastor of The Gate with his wife Fiona. The Church focus was very much evangelistic and discipleship based. To reflect the church's ongoing growth and development in 2012 Gordon repositioned the vision of The Gate with and put emphasis on the fivefold ministry of Ephesians 4 vs 11 & 12
So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up
The 3 elements of our vision are Win, Disciple & Release.
