Rushden: Whitefriars

Boughton Drive Rushden

Whitefriars is a lively, growing church, meeting in a school and emphasising informality.

Our values are to be evangelical (we value and preach God's word), charismatic (we depend on the Holy Spirit and value his gifts), and catholic (we celebrate the sacraments and value being part of the wider church).

Whitefriars began in 1991 as a holiday club for children. We are a congregation made up of all ages and became a separate Church of England parish on 1 January 2008. We continue to place particular importance on our children's and young people's ministries, which includes having flourishing links with local schools, and activities for children and young people during the week and on Sundays. 

We also run small groups for our adult members - for worship, discipleship, fellowship and outreach.

We are linked with the New Wine network, both locally and nationally, with church members attending the New Wine conferences during the summer months.
