Our Vision and Values
Who are we?
As a Church of England Church, we are here to serve the Ise Lodge Estate, and desire to be a positive partner with churches across our town and county, to make a difference for Jesus in Kettering and the Diocese of Peterborough.
As a Bible-based church, we believe God speaks to us today through his word, and aim to teach, understand and apply its teaching to our lives, as individuals and as a community of believers.
As a Spirit-led church, we are looking for what Jesus is doing among us and around us, and believe that his Holy Spirit gives us both the guidance and the gifts to follow him today.
What really matters to us?
Jesus said, “I am the vine, you are the branches.
If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit.
Apart from me you can do nothing” (John 15:5)
We believe that Relationship is at the heart of the Christian faith.
As a church, we are aiming for our relationship
With God to be Growing Deeper.
With one another to be Growing Closer
With the community around us to be Growing Further
How do we live this out?
We worship in 3 weekly Sunday congregations; at 9am, 11am & 6.30pm and once a month at 2.30pm (a service for families who have a child or children with special/additional needs) and once a month on Saturday at 4.00pm (a gathering involving worship, activities and food, for people who may find it difficult to get to church on Sundays).
We meet together in small groups at home or church during the week.
We support programmes of activity serving children, young people, men, women and older people in our local community and church.
Summer Service Times
Throughout the month of August we have one morning service at 10am.
There will be no MishMash or The Gathering in August.
All other service times remain as usual.
