Welcome - God's Got More!
At Gleneagles Anglican Church we believe that the good news of Jesus Christ is for everyone and that though there is much on offer in this world, God’s Got More!
Our church was started in October 1990, so we are now approaching our 29th anniversary and we are very much looking forward to all that God is going to do in the future. Our next objective is to build our new church and community centre on land we have bought opposite the "Ock & Dough" pub.
We are located on the Gleneagles housing estate in north-west Wellingborough and meet at Redwell Primary School. Currently we are a congregation of about 100 adults with 20 or so children and teenagers. Many of us are near neighbours living on the Gleneagles Estate with quite a few coming from further afield. Children and teens are active members of the church and many attend our mid-week children’s club.
We are very relaxed and informal in our style of worship and use contemporary music with a talented group of musicians on guitars, keyboards, drums and more.
Friendship is very important to God and to us so there is a big social and care side to our activities with all ages.
Our main goal is to enable people to grow in faith and understanding of Jesus Christ and to experience the reality of God making a real difference in our individual lives bringing forgiveness, freedom, peace, hope, friendship and joy into our personal experience.
We hope that this website will enable you to discover more about us. If you are in this area you will be very welcome to join us in worshipping Almighty God, who has revealed himself through the person of Jesus Christ.
We want everyone, especially you (if you haven’t already) to discover that...God’s Got More!

Building for the Future
We have met in Redwell Junior School for over 20 years, but have now purchased land in order to build our own church building. We are very excited at everything God is doing amongst us and this new phase in our history! We have preliminary plans for a building which will serve the community seven days a week and have launched our building fund.

Help Us Build Our Church!
You can help us raise funds towards our new building (at no cost to you!) by doing what you normally do, that is buying on-line, but going via The Giving Machine.
Every time you make a purchase at one of these on-line stores: Viking, Amazon, Ebay, Sainsbury's, John Lewis, M&S, Next, Argos, Tesco, Debenhams, Homebase, Bodens, The Trainline and hundreds more, a small percentage of the purchase price comes to Gleneagles Anglican Church.
For more information please visit our Church Building Fund website.
Safeguarding Is Our Responsibility
Safeguarding is a priority at Gleneagles church. We have adopted government and Church of England guidelines on the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults and good working practice, including safer recruitment of volunteers and paid workers.

Freedom in Christ Course
Galatians 5:1 “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.”
The Freedom in Christ Course is run over ten sessions plus the “Steps to Freedom in Christ” day on a Saturday.
The course is for every Christian, from recent converts to ‘older’ Christians, from those progressing steadily or even speedily, to those who feel stuck. This course could be just what you want / need to help you to continue to move forward in your Christian life.
If you feel you would like to take the course when it is next offered please contact Melvyn Pereira on firstname.lastname@example.org

“Sharing Your Faith”
A short course to help us to think about, pray about and learn about how God can use me to share His love with those who I know, who do not know Him.
“You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you and you will be my witnesses.”
On Tuesdays February 4th, 11th and 25th
You will receive the course booklet and useful handouts.
The course is free.
This course is a very important part of our Vision 2020 - Homegroups are doing the course in the next few weeks. If you are not in a homegroup please sign up by contacting Melvyn. See details at the bottom of this note.
N.B. the venue is still to be arranged. You will be notified of the venue after you have signed up.
A message from Bishop Donald
“I am excited by this course and see it having great potential in two ways. First, and most obviously, it will help us to share God’s love with those who we love. Second, and equally importantly, it will help to clarify and strengthen our faith.
I hope that you are excited about that too.
To book your place please contact Melvyn—email@example.com
“God’s heartbeat – resonating with the immeasurable pain and grief God feels for each person who doesn’t know Him.”
If you were not able to be in church on Sunday 12th January 2020, then to understand the background, and most importantly, the immense significance of this prophetic word from God to us and to keep abreast of how we believe we can begin to respond to this in 2020, please listen to the sermon which you can find here:
I am sure that you agree that it is very important for us all to be on the same page, working together in unity as one team to pray and build God's kingdom here in our communities. So get yourself a nice cuppa, ask God to speak personally to you, sit back and listen. And if God speaks to you something that you feel is for more than just yourself, please share that with me.
This year's vision builds on last year's vision "The Living Stones". For more details please click on Gleneagles Church Mission Plan

Prayer for the week
from Jackie, our Church Evangelist. (Updated 20/01/2020)
This week, please pray especially for:
- Australia as it struggles to cope with the widespread fires; for the firefighters and emergency services; for those who have lost relatives or homes; and for the environment and wildlife, that God's peace and healing will come swiftly
pray for God to free us from any fears that may be holding us back from obeying His call:
In my anguish I cried to the Lord, and He answered by setting me free.
The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid.
What can man do to me?
