Gateway Community Church was established in 2002 to provide the people of southern Kettering with better access to a Pentecostal church. A small group opened a Sunday evening service on the Highfield estate in Barnes Close Community Centre and then expanded to hire the lounge in St Clement's Court sheltered housing complex. The doors to Speight's Corner were opened for worship on Easter Sunday 2011 after a great deal of hardwork renovating the building.
After ten years, following Pastor Brian's decision to retire from full time ministry, Trustees and members voted to close Gateway as a separate entity. Thanks to everyone who has helped us along the way.
On 22nd August 2021 we celebrated with thanksgiving the life and work of the faith community Gateway Community Church which has served as a witness to God’s presence for 19 years. It has provided refuge, comfort, and challenges for God’s people. It has served the faithful people of this community. The building we used, known as Speight's Corner together with the land on which it stands, and all objects remaining in it, we have released back to the landlords for other purposes. We declare that as of 30 September 2021 it is no longer the place of meeting of a congregation of Gateway Community Church.
