Kettering and Beyond

Kettering and beyond

Open Door Church lives with a desire to reach and build well both locally and wider than the town of Kettering. This comes from God’s loving heart which we read in the Bible is for all people.


Catalyst Network

Open Door Church is a part of the New Frontiers movement of churches which started in the 1960’s and works around the world now. We are linked to a group of churches within New frontiers called Catalyst , led by Simon Holley from Kings Arms church in Bedford

and we work alongside these churches in different ways to see the church strengthened and to plant new churches in the UK and around the globe.

Open Door works alongside churches in other nations visiting them and helping where we are able to. This work is constantly changing and you will hear more about it at the various prayer meetings we have  and when those who visit these nations return home and speak of what God has been doing.


Wellingborough, Market Harborough and Corby

Like an oak tree with branches that reach out, we know that God has called us to reach out to towns and communities around us. We are doing this by praying for and starting small groups in the bigger towns of Wellingborough, Market Harborough and Corby. We may in time plant churches or congregations in these places too. If you live outside of Kettering we would love you to join us and be a part of this dream to see new groups started in these and other towns.

We also have good relationships with other churches in Kettering and our region. We value the wider church – the body of Christ in all its diversity, knowing that only together we can fulfil the mission that Jesus Christ gave it – “to make disciples of all nations”.
