Gateway’s mission is to create a vibrant community of hope-filled believers who deeply encounter the love and presence of God and partner with Jesus to outwork the joy and power of His kingdom in all areas of life.
We Love God, We love people, We are real!
Wayne & Jenny Williamson have been involved in church leadership since 1979. They co-pioneered Newcastle City Church (now Hillsong Church Newcastle) in 1989 with visionary Senior Leaders Mark and Gail Smallcombe, the church growing over the ensuing years to over 600 people.
In 2001 Wayne & Jenny felt called by God to take on the leadership of Gateway Christian Life Centre Swansea, a small but enthusiastic congregation of around 20 people. The congregation has since grown to around 200 people from all walks of life, and has a growing impact on the local community.
Happily married since 1976, they have three married children and eight grandchildren.
Wayne & Jenny are passionate about the local church. They have a heart to see a unified body of Christ working together to bring people into a genuine encounter with the love and goodness of God. For people to experience a life free from the bondage of religion, a life where they truly know WHO they are, and because of that, WHAT they are called to do.
