There's always heaps going on in the life of our Church. Here's a snap shot of what's coming up. We'd love to see you some time!


Gateway City Church exists not just to build a church, but to CHANGE a city. The Church is to love God, love people and love Life. The church is filled with different types of people, both young and old, who have discovered life and are attempting to live it to the ‘full’ through Jesus. Many grow up believing God to be dreary, depressed or weak. Rather He is vibrant, joyful and powerful. His presence is real and exciting and can be enjoyed by anyone.

  • “Whatever/wherever”

  • “We are not just building a Church but CHANGING a city”

    Scott Hanzy
  • “Our faith can move mountains”

    Matthew 17:20
  • “We will never hear God’s voice above all others if we’re tuned into the frequencies of fear”

    Steven Furtick


Our Services are filled with God's presence. They are alive and attempt to be real about our journey with God. There are no ‘superheroes’ within our church only normal people learning how to be devoted followers of Christ. Jesus said that He came to earth that we might have a life of abundance (John 10:10). We believe that Church is a time of Celebration and not religious activities. We stand united in our vision to Equip and Empower the church to go into their world and change the culture for the Kingdom of God.

We Love Wollongong

Local Community

It is so important that we are as passionate locally as we are in reaching beyond our city. The Illawarra is an amazing place with such diverse cultures and beautiful scenery. Our heart is for all generations and demonstrating God’s love in practical ways. From feeding Children breakfast to building a relationship with the thousands of students at the University campus, we extend beyond the four walls of the Church.

We have a number of local projects that we are committed to and see hundreds of people touched by Gods love weekly.

INNER CITY MEALS PROGRAM provides free meals every Tuesday night to a community of people at West Wollongong. This ministry has been running successfully for over 6 years.

Destiny Transformations

National Community

Transformations is a residential program for the treatment of drug and alcohol dependency, depression, eating disorders and other life altering conditions. The Transformations Program targets specific needs by introducing group sessions and practical teaching on issues such as: conflict resolution, communication skills, identity & self-worth, life skills, literacy & numeracy, work place ethics, discipline and boundary setting. We are a client-centered, long-term, drug-free residential therapeutic community which operates within a structured, safe and supportive environment which adopts an abstinence approach.

At Transformations the residents are highly involved in working with each other, on each other, and taking responsibility for charting their own progress. We aim to support the resident while they address issues associated with their addiction whilst helping them to discover why their lives have become unmanageable. This is done with a holistic approach where we help them address their social, physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.


Arise Asia

Global Community

The ARISEasia dream is HUGE. Some would say crazy! To establish an event in every Southeast Asian country in the world. Impossible? Yes in our natural dimension but not in God’s world. In three years the small beginnings of ARISEasia have developed into a movement of God and people, impacting thousands of lives and encouraging many local churches.

Multiple cities and local churches across a nation combine the three aspects of Conference, Community and Concert to build the platform for a move of God. Conferences provide seminars to equip young adults and youth. Community based humanitarian work provide opportunities for young adults and youth to contribute to projects in their cities and witness the transforming grace of Jesus Christ at a practical level. Concerts incorporate state of the art technology with the raw unhindered presence of God, culminating in praise, worship, word and salvations.
