Towcester and its surrounding villages
Since September 2019 we have been running weekly Sunday meetings at the Sawpits Centre in Towcester. We also have a number of small groups meeting weekly in homes in and around Towcester. We are a growing body of Christians with a heart for the area and a heart for outreach. We want to see the kingdom of God extended in this town and its surrounding villages.
Den and Becky Martin have lived in the area for over 20 years. They have had a heart for the town of Towcester and its surrounding villages. God has been speaking through pictures and words about the gospel speading in power through the area. At the beginning of 2016 Den and Becky felt a number of clear promptings from the Holy Spirit to get started and begin a group to get together to pray for the town and to seek God over what he wants to do.

You can read our story here.
What are the Sunday meetings like?
We generally start with worship songs in an informal setting, followed by bible teaching and prayer. We are keen for the Holy Spirit to move in our meetings and we like people to feel free to contribute using spiritual gifts. ‘ …Be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ’, Eph 5:19-20.
What are the midweek meetings like?
Our small groups are informal, meeting in people’s homes. They usually start with tea, coffee, biscuits and cake. We then tend to have some kind of worship and we share bible verses and have discussion. We often end with prayer, more coffee and more cake! We often do shared meals and sometimes have cluster meetings where more than one small group join together for a bigger social get-together.
