The Gateway Summer Youth Conference at HOD takes place from Monday 22nd July – Sunday 4th August 2024, as part of the wider Discipleship Course running from February to December 2024 in three terms.

The theme of the conference is ‘the Joy of Salvation.’

With joy you will drink deeply from the fountain of salvation!
(Isaiah 12, 3)


Monday 22nd July – Sunday 4th August 2024

Gateway 2024, will have a “conference” format, concentrating some of the elements of the wider discipleship course into a shorter time.  The program will include teaching from the community and from invited speakers.

Daily program

Each day during the two weeks will mix prayer,  fellowship, teaching, helping out, and time together with our community and the other young people – and some relaxation and fun!

We have some invited speakers on several evenings during the conference, including Jamie Price from Limitless who spoke at last year’s conference.

What did the Gateway 2023 participants say?

‘The whole Gateway was great and I would like to
thank all the HOD people for taking care of us and putting on the programs for us. You guys
are great.’

‘Food? Amazing! Pudding? Amazing! Also prayer (quiet time, morning prayer, times of worship…) Amazing and full of Holy Spirit!

I enjoyed everything, all the activities during Gateway, it was a good mix of different things.’

‘Thank you so much for all the work and prayers that the HOD community invested in the
Gateway. I can really feel the fruits of those two weeks…’

‘I love you! Thanks for opportunity to be with you! God bless you! ❤’
