As you may be aware, the Bethel auditorium is used on occasion by other churches and ministries as a place to gather and worship together, including the Bethel United Church, which owns and graciously allows us to rent their wonderful facility.
On these weekends, we host our Gateway Services in our Gateway Campus Auditorium. To accurately identify these weekends, we have called them ‘Super Weekends’.
There are various Super Weekends throughout the year when we will have a Saturday Night Service at 7:00pm and two Sunday morning services in the Gateway auditorium at 9:30am and 11:45am. All services will be the same in terms of Praise, Worship and the Word. (Please note that there are no children’s or youth classes provided on the Saturday evening service.)

There will be a free Gateway Park & Ride service provided on the Sunday from Sandwell MBC Long Stay car park: 101 West Bromwich Street, Oldbury, B69 3DL.

The Park and Ride will run between the following times:

Pre Service Prayer
Pre-service Prayer meets in the ‘Pastoral Care’ office at the front of Campus Building and meets at 8:45am.

Please make yourself at home, but we do ask that you be mindful of conversational noise as it can disturb those trying to listen to the service.
