Quick Overview

On a Sunday morning we open our building from 10am ready for worship starting at 10.30am. An eclectic group of adults, young people and children gather to worship (approx. 70 in person and 10 more online). Worship lasts up to 1h 30m with many staying around afterwards to catch up with one another and make new friendships. We love Jesus and do what we do in response to his amazing love and grace as revealed in Scripture. We long for others to also encounter Jesus, follow him and be filled with the Holy Spirit.

We value all ages and seek to reflect this in our gatherings by mixing traditional and modern elements. Our Sunday Worship is relaxed in nature — just come as you are; we also have three groups for U18s: Ground Breakers (age 2.5 to Year 1), XStream (Y2-6), AYP (Y7-11). Our desire is to help all ages learn to use their gifts to bless others on their frontlines (where we mix with non-believers) and in our gatherings. Our building is accessible but parking can be ‘fun’ so do click here for more info on both.

Over the month, we also have a selection of different activities for most ages, both serving the local community and supporting our walk with Jesus. Every Monday Home From Home offers a place to socialise or just ‘be’, our hybrid prayer meeting is every Thursday, Fridays sees Meet ‘n’ Eat offering a community lunch, and on a Saturday you’ll find our Gateway Cafe open to the public. Alongside all this, our Baby Basics centre serves the community twice a week and at other times in the month we have various Connect Groups (CAMEO, Craft and Gateway 2 Gaming). House Groups meet fortnightly or monthly (mainly in person) offering mutual pastoral support and encouragement to one another through fellowship, prayer and Bible study. For more info follow the links, explore our website or get in touch.

We recognise our part in God’s mission to the world by supporting missionaries through BMS World Mission alongside praying for other international mission agencies. We also partner with local mission projects, such as Thrive Youth Ministries and Crossteach as well as run our own Home Mission Projects — Gateway Café and Baby Basics. We are committed to praying for persecuted Christians and our broken world, as well as financially supporting other mission projects. For more about our mission partners, see here.

What are we about?

In April 2022, the Members agreed new mission and vision statements.

Our mission is: To grow followers of Jesus, who make followers, transforming lives with the good news of Jesus.

We realise trying to live in Kingdom ways (Matt 6:33) in our world is not easy so we seek to be like family, prioritising relationships—caring for one another, sharing from one generation to the next (Psalm 145:3-4) and encouraging each other in our walk with Jesus.

Our five-year vision is: To be a beacon of hope in Warwick and beyond.

We believe Jesus is the hope all people need (Rom 15.13; 1 Tim 1:1) and want to see new people reached for Christ (Titus 2:11). Whilst it is the Holy Spirit who convicts and converts (John 16:7-11), we recognise we each have responsibility to GO to be where people are (Matt 28:18-20)—getting involved with our local communities—as well as inviting them to events in the home of CHBC.

We are early on this journey—currently praying and discerning what this all means in practice. We have made a long-term commitment to secure and develop our youth work to be fit for the 21st century in partnership with Thrive.
