The Gathering Place IOW




We are a Christian group.  As such we believe that anyone can have a real, meaningful relationship with their creator, and find answers to the deep questions of life:

-Why am I here?
-What is my purpose?
-Why is there suffering in the world?
-Will things ever get better?

We believe that by understanding God's plans for humanity through the person of Jesus Christ, we have hope and encouragement both for this life, and the one to come.

We believe that by following the example of Jesus - meeting people's everyday needs, in real, practical ways, we are living the type of religion that God expects from us.

We want to make a difference to our local community of the Isle of Wight, and share the love we have received from God, to all we meet - whether they choose to follow Jesus for themselves or not.

We exist as part of a global family of over 17million Christians in the Seventh-day Adventist Church.  As such we have detailed, Bible-based beliefs about the nature of God as Father, Son (Jesus Christ), and Holy Spirit, and how our faith should be lived out.  If you want to know more about this, please follow the links below - or better still, come meet with us and see for yourself!
