Ministry

We are developing a form of Ministry Team at St Andrew's in which the Clergy, Churchwardens, Lay Chair, Readers, Pastoral Assistants and Parish Evangelist meet regularly for fellowship, support, and to shape policy and vision in the life of the parish.

Our vision is to continue to draw out in all the gifts which God has graciously given them, to serve God and neighbour alike.

Over the years the parish has enjoyed the ministry of many gifted clergy and laity alike - from the vision of Canon Lindsay, who as Rector of Kettering established the new Church of St Andrew to serve an increasing population, to the quiet gifts of prayerful souls who have worshipped here and patiently cared for one another...

Ministers: From the first Curates in charge under Canon H Lindsay to Vicars from 1916 when the parish was separated from the ancient Kettering parish.
