Through Jesus Christ, our four churches are here to be a Christ centred community sharing God’s love in the world.
Our family of four churches comprises:
All Saints, Braybrooke, St Giles, Desborough (Anglican-Methodist), St Mary's, Brampton Ash and All Saints, Dingley
The communities we serve in North Northamptonshire include both town and country settings, and we share a passion to show God's love here. We also share a desire to follow the Holy Spirit who is at work in many different places and in many different lives in our town and villages. Everyone is welcome at our churches, of whatever age, background or tradition.
Christmas Tree Festival
The Christmas Tree Festival starts on Friday 28th November. Widow Twankey, from the Kettering Lighthouse production of Aladdin, will be attending the Festival on Gala Night to decorate the Aladdin Tree. She will be accompanied by her entourage. The Aladdin Tree will be prepared and completed on the night so that all the cast members can join in.

• The St Giles Christmas Tree Festival has been running yearly since 2000 and is believed to be the longest running in the country. The church is filled with Christmas trees lit and decorated by local individuals, community groups and businesses. Themes range from the serious to the humorous and the sublime to the ridiculous. The extent of peoples' imagination amazes every year.
The Festival begins on Friday 28th November and runs from 3 pm to 9 pm. On Saturday doors open from 10 am tol 6 pm. On Sunday it opens from 11.30 am to 5.30 pm and is followed at 6pm by Christmas Songs of Praise.
For accompanied under 16's entrance is free, otherwise it is £2.50. The church is open on Friday for pensioners only from noon to 1.30 pm for £1.

Music at St Giles
The Music Team has been meeting to look at the future of music in our church. We now want to identify anyone with musical skills, vocal and instrumental, traditional and/or modern.
Do you play a musical instrument of any kind – keyboard, brass, wind, stringed or percussion? We’d like to hear from you and help you develop your skills for use in our worship and outreach.
If you play the piano we’d like to introduce you to the organ. If you’re interested in learning the basics of organ playing, we’d like to hear from you. If enough people are interested, we’ll provide the theory and practice in group sessions, otherwise as individuals.
