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 28th 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 140 adults with 30 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 group.
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!

Prayer for the week
from Jackie, our Church Evangelist. (Updated 18/04/2019)
This week, please pray especially for:
All those who have not yet heard Jesus' message of redeeming grace, and that he will prompt us with ways to share it with those we meet.
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.

Freedom in Christ
ATTENTION COURSE PARTICIPANTS - Latest info updated 07/04/19
We are nearly half way through Freedom in Christ and I am hearing that many people, myself included, have got a lot out of the teaching and discussions already.
A very important part of the course is the
'Steps to Freedom in Christ'.
This is a reminder that that is happening on Saturday 4th May from 9.00am - 1.00pm. I will let you know the venue soon. If you cannot make that day please let me know and I will endeavour to make other arrangements for you to experience the 'Steps to Freedom'.
The venue for Monday mornings has changed -
We will meet at the Vicarage 9.45am for coffee and the session will start at 10.00am as before.
As you experience good things through the course I encourage you to share them with others. You will find that they are blessed and you will be too through sharing what God is teaching you / doing for you.
As previously advised:
This is to affirm that if you have to miss a session you can attend the relevant other session.
Also, because of the forthcoming bank holidays, the dates for the Monday sessions have had to be revised. So Sessions 6 and 8 (22 April and 6 May) have been changed. The dates below have been revised accordingly.
Monday mornings 10.00am—11.45am
Venue: The Vicarage
Tuesday evenings 7.30pm—9.15pm

1 Peter 2:5
like living stones,
are being built into
a spiritual house
to be a holy priesthood,
offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God
through Jesus Christ.”
