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'.
Our lead pastors Gordon and Fiona Stewart began leading the church in 2002.
Growing people to bring Christ into our communities #GetConnected
We are building a church that is:
That’s accessible, approachable and available across multiple locations
Where people experience God’s love and embrace a life-long passion for Jesus
Where compassionate and generous people love and serve their communities
Innovative and creative
in worship, music and
Where prayer brings freedom, healing and relationship with God
A catalyst for change in
our society through our community and activities
Christ is first - we were made to have a relationship with him.
He makes all things possible and his word lights our way
Love people - reach the lost, release the found with a heart of generosity
Community - we love, support and grow together
Serving - we all play our part in building the church
Pioneers - we will be bold and adventurous for god
Stewardship - we all take care of our people, our resources, our environment and ourselves
We believe in God the creator of all things, who because of His love for us sent His Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for our forgiveness, and was raised to life.
He gives us new life through the Holy Spirit.
Who is Jesus
Colossians 1:15-20 (NLT)
Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation, for through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through him and for him. He existed before anything else, and he holds all creation together. Christ is also the head of the church, which is his body. He is the beginning, supreme over all who rise from the dead. So he is first in everything. For God in all his fullness was pleased to live in Christ, and through him God reconciled everything to himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross.
Philippians 2:6-11 (NLT)
Though he was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. Instead, he gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When he appeared in human form, he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross. Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honour and gave him the name above all other names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
