Men’s Life Groups

Men’s groups at Gateway are built around a program called “Reconnected Man”.

These groups have been a catalyst for real life change in Gateway Men. This following short video gives a bit of an overview of what ‘Reconnected Man’ is all about. Click HERE to see the video.

If you are interested, please fill in the form below and our Men’s Pastor, Paul Cavanagh, will get in touch and arrange for you to join a group.

Groups usually meet fortnightly at Gateway.


BTW, a great way to stay connected with what’s happening in Men’s Ministry is to sign-up for my monthly Mens-enews. Just click HERE and select “Men’s News”.
