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

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.

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.

Vision 2019

“Living Stones”

“You also,

like living stones,

are being built into

a spiritual house

to be a holy priesthood,

offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God

through Jesus Christ.”

Freedom in Christ Course



The Freedom in Christ 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.

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

Our next course is being run over ten sessions on Wednesday mornings plus the “Steps to Freedom in Christ” day on a Saturday.  See the dates below.


Here is some feedback from those who have already participated in Freedom in Christ:

  • “The course is gentle and is gently transformative.  It’s not ‘preachy’ or heavy handed.  It is rooted in the truth of the Bible.”
  • “This is a transformative programme, a developmental programme, which requires thought as well as attendance.”
  • “The course has helped me hugely in understanding how to be free from the lies I've believed about myself.”
  • “This was a good course with a balance of reassurance and challenge.  I'd encourage others to sign up!!”
  • “Thoroughly enjoyable, thought provoking and enlightening.  Potentially life changing.  Extremely well presented in a clear and non-threatening way, with practical tools.  One of the best Christian courses I’ve attended.”
  • “Freedom in Christ - achieves what it promises in its title!”
  • “I found the course material excellent.  I now feel equipped with the tools to tackle strongholds in my life, deepen my relationship with Jesus and mature in my faith.”
  • “I would recommend it for all Christians at some point on their Christian journey, probably the sooner the better.”
  • “The course has been very helpful.  I have really liked the ‘I CAN DO’ lists.  I found them very empowering and will repeat them again from time to time and of course, the ‘Steps to Freedom’ away day was very good.”

Prayer for the week

from Jackie, our Church Evangelist.  (Updated 23/08/2019)

This week, please pray especially for:

Our Christian brothers and sisters who live in countries where worshipping God is forbidden, especially in India, China, and Korea, that the Lord will protect them and speak into the hearts of those who persecute them

For meditation:

Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfil the law of Christ.

Galatians 6:2
