Kingsthorpe Baptist Church has been good friends with the other churches in the “village” of Kingsthorpe for many years. These are the Church of England old village church on the Green nearby – confusingly called St John the Baptist (this is now in a team with St Marks and St David’s), http://kingsthorpechurches.co.uk St Aidan’s Roman Catholic Church, http://www.staidansnorthampton.org.uk in Manor Road and Kingsthorpe Methodist Church (who are currently worshiping with us as they await their new building) https://kingsthorpemethodist.org.uk. These 6 churches together form KCT – Kingsthorpe Churches Together.
