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. The Towcester congregation currently meets in the hall of Nicholas Hawksmoor Primary School 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.
