Originally built in 1868, The Gate was formerly known as the South Side United Church. Designed by Reverends John Goodison and H.L. Cranford and constructed with local wood, it was built with the help of the congregation to replace a former building destroyed by fire in February of 1868. The present condition of the church is a testament to the quality of craftsmanship during this period. South Side United Church has further aesthetic value due to its environmental setting. It is clearly visible from many vantage points throughout the community of Twillingate and its bell tower has long been used as a marine navigational marker by fishermen in the community.
South Side United Church has been designated a municipal heritage building by the Town of Twillingate because of its historic, aesthetic and cultural value.
The Gate is located at 1-5 Church Ln, Twillingate, NL.
