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.


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 will do this through praying for and planting 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 want you to be caught up in what God is doing with us. Please join us on our mission.


Catalyst Network

Being joined to the Catalyst Network of Churches ensures we keep connected to the bigger picture. Through this link some of us have visited other churches and travelled to other nations. In time, we anticipate a developing connection to one or two churches outside of the UK where we will send support, finance and short term teams.


As part of our wider vision we also have good relationships with churches across the town and 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.
