Church of England Diocese of London Emmanuel Northwood

New vision launch

4 Mar 2019, 9 a.m.

On Sunday 3 March 2019 we launched our new church vision, beginning a new chapter in the life and work of Emmanuel.

We are a church of missional disciples seeking to love God and love each other; influencing our community, city, nation and world with the love of Jesus that we might see His Kingdom come.

We believe that God is calling us to be…

committed to the Word, the Spirit, prayer and worship

a church for our local community; focused on loving, serving and winning those who don’t yet know Jesus

missional disciples who are bold and courageous, unafraid to take risks and step out in faith

willing to follow God’s leading and direction and to pay the price of being obedient to his call in the use of ourselves, our time and our resources

To do this we believe that God is calling us to grow deeper, grow younger and grow wider.

Growing deeper…

in our relationship with God and in our relationship with each other. Maintaining the priorities of worship, prayer, bible teaching and openness to the work of the Holy Spirit.

Growing younger…

facing the challenge of declining attendance of under 40s in the UK we are committed to placing a special emphasis on trying to reach children, young people and their families.

Growing wider…

in mission and evangelism. Growing as missional disciples taking the good news of Jesus and his love and kingdom wherever we go throughout the week. Growing in our outreach as a church seeking to love and serve the people who live and work in Northwood.
