What is King’s Gate’s vision?
King’s Gate London was birthed out of a desire to see a fivefold ministry church established and flourishing, led by apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers and evangelists, as described in Ephesians 4:11-13. We want to pursue God’s manifest presence as we worship and adore Him; and to equip and disciple the Bride of Christ. Our heart is for all of God’s children to understand why they were born, who their Father is, and the place they have in His family.
What is the fivefold?
The fivefold is a shared leadership that, by serving, equips God’s people to come into full maturity in Christ, real unity in the faith, and powerful Kingdom ministry, with each church member released into their gifts.It is based upon the church in Acts and Ephesians 4:11-13, where Paul teaches about apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers equipping the Church for acts of service.
Who is the leader of King’s Gate?
We are seeking to build a leadership team comprising of the five-fold gifting (see Ephesians 4:10-16 and above) of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers. We believe each person has a part to play in the body of Christ and seek to equip and release all the saints for ministry. With Jesus Christ as the head of King's Gate, our leadership team is currently made up of Pip & Sophie Earl, Richard & Luellen Mayhew, Ian & Jane McCormack, and Jennifer O’Brien.
How does a broad leadership work?
There is no overall leader of King’s Gate but a team of leaders (as above) which means decisions are weighed and taken as a whole team rather than resting on one individual.
How can I get involved in King’s Gate?
There are a number of ways you can get involved in King’s Gate family life. You could pop in to visit us one Sunday – we meet each week at 6.30pm at Baden Powell House in South Kensington. You could also attend one of our “Catch the Vision” evenings, run over two nights every three to four months. These evenings are a great opportunity to hear about King's Gate London's vision from different members of the core team, and to begin to get a feel for where you fit within it. To find out more about becoming a member of our fellowship, please email our Administrator Joan on firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are already a member, we run a Prayer Meeting on Wednesdays, that we would definitely recommend you attend. Members also meet mid week for fellowship and prayer at Connect Groups. These meetings are a great way to make meaningful connections with others in the family, and to connect with God and the King's Gate vision. Members also get together for Family Night celebrations. Do have a look at the Family Meetings page to find out more. You might also like to think about serving on one of our teams. Again, please email Joan to find out more.
How do I make a donation?
Everything you need to know about making a donation to King's Gate is on our Giving page.
Why do people give donations to King's Gate London?
We know God loves it when we give financially as it is part of our worship to Him. It demonstrates our thanks to Him for all that He has so graciously given us, demonstrates our trust in His continuing provision, and shows our passion to see His Kingdom come through the work of the Church. The Bible talks about giving a ‘tithe’ to your church, which means giving away a tenth of your income as a way of honouring God.=
Who preaches at your Sunday services?
We believe in releasing different members of the body in their gifts by giving them an opportunity to share on Sundays. This is why we don't have a set rota of speakers. We invite you to feast on the rich treasures God has blessed us with through different members of the King's Gate family by listening to podcasts from our Sunday services. You can subscribe to the King's Gate podcast via iTunes.
Do you baptise people?
We believe in repentance and belief before baptism (see Mark 1:4 and Acts 8:12-17), therefore we baptise people as adults when they have reached this stage of their faith. We have a 'Dedication' time for new babies where we dedicate the parents to the task of bringing up their children in a godly way, and at the same time pray God's blessing upon the child and his or her life._
Does King’s Gate have outreach activities?
We don’t currently have any outreach activities.
Does King’s Gate have children’s facilities?
We don’t offer nursery or creche facilities, or run a children’s programme but we do welcome all children into our 6.30pm Sunday evening celebration service. All the children are encouraged to participate in our worship (many especially enjoy dancing!) and we have been excited that some of the children have had profound ‘heavenly’ encounters during our services. (To read Michael’s testimony of one such encounter click here.)
