Who are we?
Gateway Student Mission goes by #CGLW which stands for CommonGround and LiveWire, our two mid-week groups for students in grades 6 through 12, and Shockwave or Voltage Sundays are a fresh approach to church, for older elementary school age students, with creative elements and interesting topics that will communicate God’s love and truth to our students.
Student Mission programs involve teams of student and adult leaders & helpers, under the direction of Pastor Wayne Giroux, our Student Mission Director.
We are here to help students know, and be known by, Jesus!
When do we meet?
During the school year we meet on Thursdays, together or separately with grade groups. On Sundays, CommonGround students attend the service of their choice, and LiveWire students are dismissed to their own group during the 10:30 or 11:30 service most weeks. We reduce our schedule for the summer and offer twice-monthly events for both groups.
Where do we meet?
Most nights we meet at the London Campus, but we will take occasional road-trips for things like camp services, our annual retreats and conventions!
CommonGround: 6:45 – 9 PM September – May
Livewire: 6:45 – 9 PM September – April
*Doors open at 6
CommonGround students attend the service of their choice.
LiveWire students are dismissed to their group, Shockwave or Voltage, just before the sermon portion of the 10:30 (Komoka) and 11:30 (London) service most weekends. These groups are a fresh approach to church, with creative elements and interesting topics that will communicate God’s love and truth to our students.
We welcome parents to join us and see #CGLW in action, and we do so by inviting you to a special parent night at least once each school year. It lets you peek in on us, worship with us, and join in on the fun!
Permission forms are required for students, under the age of 18, to attend any of our road trips, whether within the city, overnight at convention/retreat, or out of the province for a week-long mission trip.
