Senior leader: Tim Jarvis

Welcome to the website of Gateway Church Withernsea. David and I planted Gateway church back in June 2014. We started with monthly services over that summer up until the full launch of the church in September 2014.


(Tim and Annette Jarvis)

The church has been steadily growing from 16 believers (including children) in our first ever service to our current average of 30 (March 2016). However the real spade-work started much earlier; just four of us labouring in a weekly prayer meeting in Withernsea from April 2013. I personally prayer-walked every street and back alley in Withernsea in the summer of 2013, as it is written “I will give you every place where you set your foot” (Joshua 1:3).

On boxing day 2014 I prayer-walked along the beach from Withernsea to Bridlington. Then in 2015 I prayer-walked every street in Bridlington a job that took most of 2015. I have recently started a prayer meeting in Bridlington called "The Wave" prayer meeting. We believe God is about to bring a mighty wave of his presence and power to Bridlington. We meet in the Jacob's Well Shop, 48 Promenade, Bridlington YO15 2QQ at 7:00pm Friday night.

On New Year’s eve 2015 I prayer-walked from Bridlington to Filey. Watch this space!

My calling is to plant churches all up the coast of the old kingdom of Northumbria.

Annette and I have six children and nine Grandchildren (with another three on the way).
