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.

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.”

Prayer for Street Pastors
Street Pastors do an amazing work on the streets of Wellingborough engaging with the town's night life. Street Pastors rely heavily on prayer support. If you would like to support our Street Pastors please use the list of their prayer needs below to lift them up before the throne of God every Saturday. Copy, paste and print the list and keep it somewhere where it will remind you to pray for them on Saturdays.
- That the team stay safe and are protected from any harm or illness.
- May everyone in town be kept safe and well.
- That the team once again works well with the Police, CCTV and the Ambulance services. May the team be called out to any incident which needs their time and care.
- For the work the team will do with the homeless people they meet, may the team and the Homeless be blessed by each other.
- For good conversations to take place with people the team meet and may people feel free to ask for prayer. Also please pray that the team gets lots of time to speak to doormen and men and women out for the night.
- For people to share with the team any worries they have.
- For people not to drink too much alcohol, even if there are special offers.
- Pray that people look after their friends and partners and that they never leave them on their own in town.
Thank you in advance for praying for the team this week - everything we do is underpinned by prayer, so we do value your prayers.
Prayer for the week
from Jackie, our Church Evangelist. (Updated 05/12/2019)
This week, please pray especially for:
Jane, Steph, Bob and Melvyn
At that time Mary got ready and hurried to a town in the hill country of Judea, where she entered Zechariah's home and greeted Elizabeth. When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. In a loud voice she exclaimed: “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the child you will bear! But why am I so favoured, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy. Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!”

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.
The current course is now well under way but if you feel you would like to take the course when it is next offered please contact Melvyn Pereira on email@example.com
