Happy Easter!

 

This year 190 rocks were painted and distributed throughout the community.
For every rock that was found and brought Church in Redwell School on Good Friday, an Easter Egg was substituted for it.
As last year, the Ester Rock Hunt was a great success. Thank you to all who painted the rocks and supplied the Easter Eggs, and congratulations to all who found one of the rocks.

FUTURE PLANS – MESSAGE FROM THE VICAR

FUTURE PLANS – MESSAGE FROM THE VICAR

Dawn Airey – The Vicar

All Saints Church, Great Harrowden

In late 2020 I felt the Lord speak to me through Paul’s storm journey in Acts 27.  Paul was imprisoned on a boat when a terrifying storm threatened to destroy the boat and everyone on it.  In the middle of the sea, with no land in sight, suddenly in the distance they saw new lands.  They didn’t know what or who was there but there were definitely new lands to head towards offering fresh hope.

As a church, in January 2021 we started asking, ‘Lord help us see the new lands beyond the storm of this pandemic and then reveal what you want to be constructed there for your kingdom purposes.’

As the last 6 months have passed by it feels as though the Lord has given us some clarity about the ‘new lands’ in at least two significant ways:

i)Firstly, at the beginning of yet another lockdown it was a really good opportunity to seek fresh vision for how this part of the Body of Christ in Gleneagles Church can join with God in building His kingdom, as we emerge from this storm.  The Vision is now complete with the strategy being a working document.  The Vision booklet is available by clicking on the link in the Vision section below.

ii) Secondly, prior to the pandemic Gleneagles Anglican Church had a long held vision to build a new church and community centre on the land opposite the Ock ‘n’ Dough.  The money required for this has not materialised.

However, at the end of May 2021 we were invited to consider extending our parish by including all that is within the neighbouring parish of Great Harrowden (Glenvale Park, Redhill Grange and the hamlet of Great Harrowden).   This also included the parish church building at Great Harrowden on the A509, All Saints.

We are delighted to accept this offer to extend God’s mission in this way!

The parish church needs some re-ordering and so our Sunday services will remain at Redwell Primary School until later in 2022.  (We still have the land opposite the Ock ‘n’ Dough and over the coming months we will need to make a decision about that).

These two things combined have given us much to be excited about and a clear sense of God’s heart and purpose as we look forward to the next chapter in the life of this church.

Milestones

  • September 2018, Maria Seaman and John Mulhall began a Lay Pioneer’s Course.
  • The final part of this course was to develop a way to reach out to people outside of the established church. Independently of each other both Maria and John had the Homeless of Wellingborough put on their hearts, and they were given the name “Street Church.”
  • As part of their research Maria and John contacted Street Church Northampton, only to discover that their contact at Street Meals was a key member of that team
  • Also, as part of their research, Maria and John went to the Redeeming our Communities (ROC) session in Wellingborough and were introduced to two people from Teen Challenge who they had heard of having tried to set up something similar to Street Church in the past.
  • A Meeting was set up with Teen Challenge and from this it was agreed to start what we would call Community Church on Palm Sunday 2019 and to continue once a month aimed at providing spiritual and physical refreshment to the homeless and socially excluded of Wellingborough
  • Over the next 10 months regular services were held with guest speakers and hot food, plus a pamper session with a barbeque and a Christmas Meal.
  • Community Church changed its name to Street Church as it linked in with Street Church Northampton
  • Covid 19 affected Street Church in that we cannot meet, but volunteers worked with other groups to work with the homeless during this time.
  • In early 2021, Street Church Northampton decided to close, and the name etc has been passed top Street Church Wellingborough to continue the work

 

What we do?

  • Monthly services with worship songs, readings and a talk, plus hot food and hot drinks at the Daylight Centre, on the first Sunday of each month.
  • Spend time with homeless and socially excluded

 

What do we need?

  • Local Churches’ Support 
    • To provide and serve hot food and drinks on a rota basis for the services
    • Guest Speakers (so far, we have had speakers from St Mark’s, Gleneagles, Street Pastors, the Gideons and Teen Challenge)
    • People to offer services at pamper sessions such as hair dressing, manicures etc.

 

  • Other Support
    • Financial Support

 

  • Prayer Support
    • Everything we do is underpinned by prayer.
