Welcome to the Parish of St Peter and St Paul with St Michael and All Angels. These churches are situated in the heart of Kettering in the diocese of Peterborough, and as well as being places of worship for the local community and beyond, they are also hubs of vibrant activity hosting many events.
People come to church from all walks of life, comprising diverse backgrounds, experiences and ages. Approximately 150 adults and children meet for worship each Sunday, and the church family provides opportunities for each one to become as little or as much involved as they wish. This might be within the musical life of the church, the children’s work, the Mothers Union, the soup kitchen in the week, coffee after services or bell ringing, to name but a few.
As followers of Christ, we seek to follow His example by sharing God’s love in the way we support one another, and care for the local neighbourhood and the wider world.
We strive to be a community where each member is valued and feels welcome, and within which we can all experience the love of God.
OUR PRIORITIES AS A CHURCH…
Inspired by the love of God and a vision of new life, we commit ourselves to:
helping Kettering rediscover its heart and soul
tackling loneliness and isolation in our community
nurturing Christian faith and discipleship
being welcoming, hospitable and inclusive
providing a spiritual home for young families
PROPOSED ACTION PLAN OUTCOMES
Our Church Council has recently agreed what changes it would like to see over the coming months and years in order to make a reality of our vision of seeing new life in our church and in our town. This document summarises the outcomes it has decided it wants to see.
WE HAVE BEEN LISTENING…
