The area adjacent to the river Tove consists of village communities, many of which once contained vibrant Christian churches but no longer do so. 


In the late 1990s we sensed God’s calling to try to reverse this.  Therefore, when Helmdon and Weston Baptist church approached us, seeking our partnership and support, we recognised this as the first step towards fulfilling the vision we already had.

At around the same time, in February 2001, we moved out of our old premises on Watling Street, as they no longer met the Church’s needs. Prior to the 2020 national lockdown, we met at Nicholas Hawksmoor Primary School. Currently, the Towcester congregation meets online via Zoom until the Tove Valley Centre is built.

As part of our aim to express God’s love for our community, we have a vision to build a new centre as a focus for the life and work of the church in Towcester. The Tove Valley Centre will be built between the Shires estate and the new SNC carpark on Northampton Road.


Providing the Towcester congregation with a home will enable us to serve our town more effectively.  It will also be a Christian resource for the whole Tove Valley area and will help us reach its people for Christ.

Recent news about the Tove Valley Centre project can be found on the Tove Valley Centre website.  You will be able to see plans, elevations and artist’s impressions, as well as details of what will be included within the building.

Terms & Conditions



At Tove Valley Baptist Fellowship, we realise how challenging the COVID-19 pandemic has been for families, whether financial, emotional or simply dealing with bored and confined children.


We hope that our Breakfast Club, that is available to any family with children or young people under 18 years, Monday to Friday from 8.30 to 10.30 during school holidays, will help in some small way. Children aged 8 years or under to be accompanied by an adult please.

The first Breakfast Club will be during the Easter School Holidays Monday 29th March to Friday 9th April 2021. In order to keep everyone safe, this Breakfast Club will be a take-away service. All of the usual COVID precautions will be in place, so please wear a mask, observe the one-way system, maintain a 2-metre distance from others and apply hand gel on arrival at the servery.

There will be a variety of breakfast bars, fruit juice, cheeses and so on for children and young people to choose from and take home in a paper bag that will be provided. Accompanying adults will be offered a take-away tea/coffee and pastry. Children and young people will also be offered craft and other activities to take home and enjoy.

Some useful information will be available about other support services for families that can be accessed online and locally. We would be happy to offer our support to make use of such services too.
