Situation:
Very active Church of almost 300 members situated in Corby, Northants, in the Welland Valley surrounded by many beautiful villages and stately homes. We are well sited for access to London/ Stanstead/ Luton/ Birmingham/ East Midlands Airports and within easy reach of the A1, M6 and M1 motorways. We are also well placed for access to many large cities and towns. This is a self supporting Church who meet their Ministry and Mission allocations.

The stage in the large hall can also be closed off and used as a further room if required. All are heated by gas fired central heating.

The Manse is situated on a private estate at the edge of town but within 15 minutes walking distance from the Church. It was built in 1965. It is in a good state of repair and all windows have UPVC double glazed units and heating is gas fired central heating.

Church Activities

For week-day activities please see list below.

Organisations and times

Corby was originally a Steel Town but now mainly consists of light industry. Unemployment in the town is below the national average. New housing and industrial estates have grown up and there are further plans for similar expansion in the near future. The town centre is undergoing regeneration which includes a new Olympic size swimming pool. The plans also include a shopping complex, arts centre, library and various other improvements to leisure activities. The people of Corby are friendly, caring and welcoming.

Church of Scotland Ministers are called upon to officiate at many funerals of non-members since most of the large Scottish population and people of Scottish descent claim association with the Church of Scotland. The Church is licensed to perform weddings and we have our own authorised registrar. Hospital visits are made to Kettering Hospital which is 8 miles away.

The Church holds an entertainment licence. We have a very active Social Committee who organise bazaars, Scots nights, band concerts, Church dinners which include a Christmas Dinner.

The congregation consists of a mixture of traditionalists and those of more modern persuasions. We have a music group of singers who regularly lead the worship. We are a friendly congregation and visitors are always made welcome. We have tea, coffee and fellowship in the large hall after morning worship. There is a taxi service for members who have difficulty in getting transport to and from Church. The congregation has been supportive in trying out new ideas, e.g. Alpha and Saints Alive courses and also link-up to the last Billy Graham Campaign in Scotland.

We all like coming to St. Ninian’s because it is a friendly family Church

The Church members participate in the Care and Share Drop In Centre which is held in our small hall.

We had agreed a visit from Impact Youth Mission which has had to be deferred due ot the loss of our previous minister.

We have regular work parties who help to maintain the fabric of the Church. We have strong links wilth Ekwendeni Hospital in Malawi and a monthly retiring collection is sent there.

I very much enjoy being part of St. Ninian’s. There is a very strong fellowship among the congregation and wider Church community

Finally we are pleased to say that we are an eco friendly Church.











Future

The appointment is an unrestricted call and carries the minimum stipend with listed expenses. We are looking for a Minister to take us forward in the further development of the congregation and out reach in the community. We are looking for an enthusiastic, committed and hardworking Minister able to reach successfully across the whole spectrum of the congregation from youngsters to our more senior members and covering both modern and traditional viewpoints.
