Gateway Church launches

  • Written by  Ian Anderson
Gateway Church Pastor Peter Sykes

Since the Lighthouse Community Church in Harlaxton was closed down at the end of last year, a small team from the Gold Coast have been working hard to replant the church.

Peter Sykes and his wife Lauren, along with 5 others moved to Toowoomba in January from the Gold Coast and have been refurbishing the building and renamed it as Gateway Church.

“We packed up and left my P.E teaching job that I loved, leaving great relationships with kids and piers, and moved to Toowoomba,” said Peter. “Miraculously, we had jobs provided for us.” 

The team worked hard to get the church ready for their first service on March 29, with new paint, carpet, rooms, sound equipment, and landscaping.

“Lauren and I are really excited to see what God will do not just in our church, but in the community of Harlaxton, and the city of Toowoomba itself,” said Peter.

“We are looking forward to connecting with the community and planning church in the outdoors in the grounds and in the park across the road.”

Gateway Church is at 40 - 42 Gleeson Crescent, Harlaxton.
