WELCOME TO CITYGATE
“Hospitality begins at the gate, in the doorway, on the bridges, between public and private spaces. Finding and creating threshold spaces is important.”
WITH THE CITY
CityGate Vancouver works to form connections among local churches with each other and with civic leaders and organizations in Greater Vancouver. The purpose of these connections is to bring transformation to our neighborhoods and its people.
CityGate is inviting churches to enter into a partnership agreement.
Partnership with CityGate connects your church with other churches, within and beyond your own denomination. We fill a collaborative vacuum and help the Church work together in the City. A partnership with CityGate connects your churches with valuable resources for strengthening your own local mission.
Through gatherings, conferences, courses, community development processes and more, CityGate is helping churches engage their neighbourhoods and address the issues of our city in a fuller way.
