“Here to serve: Jesus, each other and the  community”

Welcome…

In 2011, Gleneagles Anglican Church took the decision to raise funds for a Church and Community Building of its own. We have purchased land in Farm Road, Wellingborough and commissioned a firm of architects who designed a building for the 21st Century which will be used not only as a Christian place of worship on Sundays but also 7 days a week for a wide variety of community activities. In an area of established and expanding population there is no church building and no community building that is set aside for the wide variety of activities needed to build community cohesion.

Our charitable objects are to promote in the parish the whole mission of the Church, pastoral, evangelistic, social and ecumenical. Despite the serious disadvantage of not having our own premises, Gleneagles Anglican Church is at the heart of Redwell’s multi-cultural population and provides a range of services and support for people of all ages and backgrounds, whether they are Christian or not. We have a very active and engaged group of people, this report lays out what we are currently doing…Action in the Community

So, thank you for visiting our Building Project website. A lot has been happening over recent months; we’ve added a lot of new material to the various pages on the site and moved some items around.

The most important recent development has been a major change to the way the building will be constructed. We have moved into a Phased Approach – same design, but constructed in 2 Phases, fuller details can be found on the link below. Overall the total cost still stands at £2.6m, but over the last 6 months we have been working with a number of Contractors to achieve a Phase 1 price close to £1.5m, this has now been completed and a Phase 1 price of £1.6m has been achieved.

We are also re-launching our applications to Grant Making Trusts – 120 have been sent and others are under preparation.

Phased Approach – for a description of the new approach and the rationale behind it please click this link…Phased Approach to Building Project web version
