Happy Anniversary to St Andrew’s Church and Congregation!
150 years ago on 9th June 1870, our church was dedicated by the Bishop of Peterborough, the Right Reverend Connor Magee.
A century and a half later we have recieved this message from the current Bishop of Peterborough:
Bishop Donald’s message:
My warm and special greetings to you at St. Andrew’s, Kettering, as you celebrate the 150th birthday of your church building and its consecration. Of course, we’re not able to be in our church buildings yet- we’d very much like to, and we look forward to that.
But, of course, as you know, the church is the people, not the building, and I do hope and pray that you’re being able to maintain your church life in a variety of ways, your worship and your service to the community during this time when we can’t get into our buildings. We do pray that this will change soon and that the churches will be open before too long, and that you can get back into St. Andrew’s and celebrate its 150 years by continuing to use it for the glory of God and for the good of your local community.
God bless you, +Donald
We hope you like the temporary picture at the top of this page. If you would like to see more of the cards our children made to send to older members of our congregation have a look at the Connect page.
