As a Methodist Church in the Duston area of Northampton, we offer to God our regular worship and other activities. We provide a place of Christian Worship, fellowship and teaching for all age groups.
We offer a warm welcome to those who use our facilities for the furtherance of God’s work. We recognize our responsibility to provide mutual support and encouragement to develop God’s gifts within each of us.
Our offer of love, friendship and support to the people of Duston and our neighbours is through the many activities that take place on our premises. For the young people this includes Boys’ Brigade weekly activities which means approximately 100 young people come through our doors week by week. We also have a small Junior Church.
For others this includes a weekly sewing/craft group; a fortnightly Ladies Guild; a monthly Fellowship meeting; and a monthly Luncheon Club which are open to all. Bible Study groups are usually held during Advent and Easter. We also have links with one of the Residential Care Homes where some of our members lead monthly worship for the residents.
We have a good relationship with the other churches in the Duston area, and are part of the Duston Churches Together Group, which meet regularly to share information and plan joint events/services.
St. Andrews is a modern building which does need some refurbishment and has a membership at present of 72. We have flexible styles of worship with the use of a Digital Projector. We have a strong leadership team which includes a number of Local Preachers and Worship Leaders. We have recently welcomed new families to our church and this year we took part in B2CS which was well
attended. We wait to see where the Lord is leading us.
