A Visitor's Guide

A brief synopsis of who we are

'The King's Gate Church' officially came into existence in early 2007; however, we have been meeting together in the local area for more than 30 years before that under the name Chichester Christian Fellowship.

We are a non-denominational, independent church affiliated to Elim Church Incorporated, a member of the Evangelical Alliance and with local connections to Churches Together, and Arun Angels.

Our church consists of around 70 adults, children and young people who meet together to worship and fellowship on Sunday mornings at10.30am in The Regis School, Westloats Lane, Bognor Regis.

During the week, there are Life Groups, prayer meetings and worship evenings where much of the life of our church really is. In these small and informal settings we meet with each other and are free to share our hearts, hopes and burdens, bringing them with worship and thanksgiving before the King.

There's lots more that could be said so we've created a number of pages on this site giving you a little more information on what we get up to, our history, what we believe, and what the vision for our church is. Feel free to browse through the site and find out a little more about the King's Gate Church, Bognor Regis or even send us an email.

Our History

A very brief guide to the 40+ year journey on which our church has been - from the prayer of a handful of faithful believers to the present day.

In about 1962 a group of some 8 to 10 concerned Christians from assorted backgrounds prayed regularly for the Lord to move in the Chichester/Bognor Regis area. This developed into a house group of some 15 believers. All sought a closer walk with the Lord and a deeper understanding of scripture.

Roger Price, originally an atheist, met the Lord at university and subsequently became Head of Geography at a school in Chichester, whilst living in Bognor Regis. He had a remarkable grasp of doctrine and of the Lord's provision for the gathered Body of Christ.

Initially a small group, including Roger, met in a home in Chichester. They were then joined by a group that had been meeting in Bognor and in due course the Chichester Christian Fellowship (CCF) was formed.

Regular bible studies were the order of the day, as well as free Spirit-led times of praise and worship. Roger went on to give a series of systematic bible studies which were recorded and are still being sent out across the world to this day (by CCF Tapes).

Numbers outgrew hall capacity and so in 1982 CCF subdivided to meet in Chichester and Bognor Regis. Over time the meeting in Bognor Regis became the larger group.

When in 2007, by mutual agreement, those who were meeting in Chichester decided to form the Riverside Chichester Fellowship, CCF changed its name to The King's Gate Church, and continues to meet in Bognor Regis, currently at the Regis School. In 2017 The King’s Gate Church affiliated with Elim Church Incorporated, and continues to enjoy a good relationship ans some shared meetings with Bognor Elim Church.
