Our heart is to be disciples of Jesus: to walk with Him, to have a personal relationship with Him and become more like Him. And then to make disciples of Jesus: to share the Gospel in word and deed, walk alongside others and be real.


Our Story

Southern Gateway Church was planted in Knysna by Nick and Viv Campbell and their four children out of 3CI church in Pretoria. The church started in the year 2000 with the first meeting being held in the Campbells' house and the first members being their children and estate agent. Over the years SG Church has grown and been blessed by amazing families and seen many lives encounter the love of Jesus. We have had the massive privilege of seeing two church plants out of SG Church: Charl and Di van Eden, Xtreme Life Church  and Brad and Eunice Joemat, Church at Tsitsikamma. We would love to see many more churches planted out of our togetherness into the world.​We love the people in our beautiful town, Knysna. Our hope is to see God's Kingdom established in every family, home and life in this town. We want to know Jesus in His fullness and make him known.

​We partner with New Covenant Ministries International (NCMI), which is lead by a trans-local team (a team of church leaders from all over the world) whose mission is to take the Gospel to the uttermost ends of the earth.
