New to Blackpool?  Looking for a community or church?

COVID-19 Notice: We won’t be meeting at our physical church building until lockdown is over. Our Sunday Services are online so why don’t you join us. Live services schedule.

If you’re new to Blackpool or surrounding area or just here for a weekend or holiday and are looking for a community to connect with, you are welcome to visit us. We have two services on Sundays – 10.30am and 6.30pm. Sunday mornings include separate youth and kids programmes.

We are a mixed bunch of people who get together to learn more about our faith and encourage one another as well as reaching out into the community. Dress is casual – so don’t feel you need to dress up. Come and enjoy a brew with us before the morning service!

What’s on?

We have various scheduled activities including Sunday evening Film Nights, Praise Evenings, Leadership Training and visiting speakers. Our social events, at different times during the year, are aimed for all from age 2 upwards! Youth Connect meets during term times and is for ages 11-17.

Look out for announcements on our social pages or visit our Events web page.


We are situated on Waterloo Road in the South Shore part of Blackpool just about 10 minutes’ walk from the seafront. The Gatehouse Church and Community Centre are on the junction of Waterloo Road and St. Anne’s Road, directly across the road from the Waterloo Hotel.
