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!

Prayer for the week
from Jackie, our Church Evangelist. (Updated 15/06/2019)
This week, please pray especially for:
God’s wisdom for our church as we seek to understand His vision for our growth and outreach
Churches Together Prayer Meetings are open to everyone - meet at Nations at 8 pm each Monday evening.
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.
Buy A Brick
All good building projects have a "Buy A Brick" scheme. Please join ours and help make this vision a reality!
For more information please visit our Church Building Fund website.
Safeguarding Is Our Responsibility
Safeguarding is a priority at Gleneagles church. We are committed to following 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.”

Freedom in Christ
We will be running this course again in the Autumn with more information available nearer to the time.
Many people benefited from the teaching and discussions in the Freedom in Christ course and the Steps to Freedom.
Here are some of the participants' comments about their experiences of the course:
- "this was a good course with a balance of reassurance and challenge."
- "the course is gentle and is gently transformative. It’s not ‘preachy’ or heavy handed or what I would call overly evangelical"
- "this is a developmental programme, which requires thought as well as attendance."
- "The course materials make it possible to revisit on my own as I feel there is much to be gained from devoting extra time. "
- "It is rooted in the truth of the bible and that is one of the main revelations for me"
- "if we believe the Bible, then we believe all of it, no matter how we might feel about it."
- " I suspect up until now I’ve been guilty of ‘interpreting’ the bible to some extent and applying my human ‘wisdom’ to it."
- "What I feel challenged on, and somewhat relieved by is that if I believe the Bible to be THE TRUTH then it truly is the foundation stone on which to base the rest of my life in Christ."
- "I’d like to repeat it sometime in the future" with "a separate time set aside, say an evening on another day in the week to think through what I’ve taken in and introduce personal behavioral change" supporting "the old adage: ‘do it once for thought, the second time for action".
- "I’d like a longer Saturday training day with breaks for thinking, prayer and meditation"
- "Great experience!"
- "I'd encourage others to sign up!!"
