We know Christmas will look a bit different again this year. What doesn’t change is the hope we have in our Saviour’s birth. Jesus Christ, the Light of the World has come! We believe that no matter what your year has looked like this Christmas is a time to celebrate.

Book your place for our Christmas Services using the form below
Entering the building
As you enter the building, you'll receive a smile and wave instead of a handshake by our welcome team. Upon arrival you will be asked by a member of the welcome team to answer some questions about COVID-19 symptoms for track and trace purposes. In order to help you feel safe, we're removing all of the normal stuff you may be used to touching: no newsletters, connect cards, iPads, etc. and replacing them with hand-sanitising stations.
Do I need to book my place for the Christmas services?
YES! Due to attendance limits we need individuals, couples and families to reserve the number of seats (spots) they need. You can sign up by completing the form above.
Will there be social distancing at the Christmas services?
The main church sanctuary and minor hall have been reworked to insure reasonable social distancing. As you make your way to the welcome area, a welcome team member will seat you at a location appropriately distanced from others. Dismissal will be done row by row by Pastor Luke at the end of the service. If you would like to chat and socialise with one another, we ask that you would please do so outside the church premises where you can assure a safe distance.
Do I have to wear a mask to the Christmas services?
YES! Due to the information from the Welsh Government on Friday 11th September 2021 , it will be the church policy following the Welsh Government guidelines that all who attend Gateway Church Cymru will be required to keep their face covering on throughout their attendance in the building. This does not apply to those who are exempt by Government guidelines.
Are things kept sanitary?
Exterior doors will be opened for you by greeters with face coverings. All interior doors will be propped open to avoid touching surfaces. Hand sanitisers will be available in the welcome area. Cleaning teams will wipe down surfaces to disinfect before and after the watch parties with the appropriate disinfecting agents. Toilets will only be available for emergencies.
Is there ample parking available?
Definitely! You'll get all the details on the best spots to park on our location page.
Can I drop off my children and pick them up at the end?
We do ask that all children be accompanied by an adult for our Christmas events.
