Northgate is a christian community of all ages mentoring students to change the world. We are a church that aims to "do life together" not only through weekly gatherings, but through truly sharing life with one another.

Every week, two Sunday services are held at our church in Williamsville, NY. A network of community groups across the city of Buffalo meet throughout the week for bible studies.

What to Expect

What are services like?

Our services are not very formal with a contemporary style of worship that moves from energetic praise to prayerful worship. We share in communion at least twice a month. The larger Body of Christ is a high value so we like to hear almost every week from a person in the congregation or about regional event. Following a solid message from the Bible, we offer a time for prayer and/or personal ministry. At 10:30 and again at the close of the second service, we serve wonderful pastries from Panera each week with coffee etc... the services are a bit over an hour (about 75 minutes) . No legalism on snacks--we are FOR THEM!
