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!

Building for the Future

The new Gleneagles Church buildingWe 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.

Freedom in Christ

course

 

 

ATTENTION COURSE PARTICIPANTS

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. 

1Peter 2 : 4,5 “As you come to him, Jesus, the living Stone you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house.”

We are ‘living stones’ individually being shaped and built up, holy, accepted by God, being built together into God’s temple, which is a picture of God’s Kingdom:

  • Each alive in Christ
  • Each being refined, honed, shaped to fit our role
  • Each an essential part of the building
  • Each in right relationship with each other

As a church we want to help each other to live out our calling to be 'living stones'.

One important resource we are using, which has been very effective in 1000s of churches worldwide, is the "Freedom in Christ" course - please read on for the details of our course.

The Freedom in Christ Course is for every Christian, from recent converts to ‘older’ Christians, from those progressing steadily to those who feel stuck.

The course does not focus on telling us how to behave but on helping us to believe the truths that Jesus teaches and how believing those truths set us free.

Galatians 5:1 “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.”

The course is over ten sessions on Monday mornings or Tuesday evenings plus the “Steps to Freedom in Christ” on a Saturday morning.  Dates are:

Monday mornings 10.00am—11.45am

Venue: Gleneagles Social Club, Grafton Close

March 4th, 11th, 18th, 25th,

April 1st, 8th, 15th, (Easter break), 29th,

Plus Steps to Freedom in Christ— 9.00am—1.00pm Saturday 4th May Venue tba

OR

Tuesday evenings  7.30pm—9.15pm

Venue: Nations, Oxford Street

March 5th, 12th, 19th, 26th,

April 2nd (Easter break), 23rd, 30th,

May 7th, 14th, 21st

Plus Steps to Freedom in Christ— 9.00am—1.00pm Saturday 4th May Venue tba

 

Cost £10  payable at the first session, plus £1 per week

(to cover cost of hall—Tuesday evenings only)

You will receive the “Participants Guide” and “The Steps to Freedom” books

 

To sign up, or if neither of the above options work for you but a

Sunday evening will, please inform Melvyn:

THREE TOP TIPS

  2. Don't believe the lie that you cannot afford the time to do the course.
  3. Pray - talk to God, ask Him if this course is for you.

THANK YOU.
