With music from VICTORS, Liam McClair, Dear Friends, CECIL, People Poems, Yarbo, Citrus Heights, Jolly & the Lightweight, Peace Frog, Dom Major, Stained Glass Ceiling and many more, it really is an event not to be missed.

St Marks is an incredible venue for live music. It’s a stunning setting with fantastic acoustics and it’s steeped in history. Gateway Church (owners of St Marks) has been successfully running gigs there for around 18 months and now we invite you to enjoy an amazing, all-day line up in this beautiful building.

Music will run from midday until 11pm and there will be 2 stages - the upper room for more of an acoustic, chilled vibe and the main stage for bigger, fuller sounds.

A Bit of our history - by Gateway Leeds
Gateway church’s story is a small part of a much bigger story; a story that goes back far beyond when each of us was born. It started with a series of promises that God made to a broken planet. Christ Jesus is the turning point of that story. He is the pivotal figure in the plot. Everything before Him points to Him and everything after Him points to His coming again.

We are now living in the crucial, last chapter of this incredible story, where through ordinary followers of Jesus, gathered in faithful church communities around the world, God is revealing himself.

Having led the formation of a new church in Bedford in the early 1990’s, Tony and Kay Smith were called by God, in partnership with Newfrontiers, to launch a new church community in Leeds. Starting with a handful of people meeting in a home on Street Lane in September 2000, the name “Gateway” was soon adopted when it was prophesied at a Leeds church leaders’ prayer meeting.

Over the years, our Sunday morning meeting venue moved from a small warehouse to an agricultural centre, from City Varieties theatre to the Eleanor Lupton Centre and then from Abbey Grange school to Notre Dame College.  We eventually moved into the renovated St Mark’s building in Woodhouse in March 2014.

During our journey we have had the privilege of playing a significant role in the formation of new church families in Doncaster (2004), Harrogate (2010), Bradford (2012), Liverpool (2013) and Halifax (2014).

Currently, the church eldership team is made up of Chris Frost, Sam Evans and David Lloyd. Now gathering around 200 people at our Sunday meetings, we have a vision to continue to see the Lord Jesus made much of in Leeds, Yorkshire and the nations. We continue to work in partnership with ChristCentral Churches ( ) which is a part of the Newfrontiers family of churches ( ) and we also enjoy strong relationships with other churches in Leeds.
