Emmanuel is a lively, gently charismatic, evangelical church, which has a very relaxed, informal and contemporary feel with a whole range of activities to cater for people of all ages and we believe there is a genuine place for everyone whether you have a young family, are a young person; single; your children have "flown the nest" and (dare we say?) those of mature years. Everyone is a valued member of our church family.
On Sundays we provide a varied pattern of Worship alongside groups for Children and Young People. We have a wide range of groups meeting regularly throughout the week, which provide an opportunity for people of all ages to learn more about their Christian faith, and offer practical Christian friendship for everyone.
We take ‘being church’ very seriously - especially when it comes to our Worship and the Preaching of God’s word. However, we enjoy having lots of fun along the way (some would say we do chaos well!) with laughter being an important, though often forgotten, part of our Christian faith. But don't take our word for it, we give you a warm invitation to come and join with us to see for yourself - we hope you will enjoy your time with us.
At the heart of our life together is the conviction that our calling as Christians is to serve Jesus and to serve one another, and this is summed up in our church motto: "A Christian Community Seeking To Serve Jesus".
Our website (we're always in the process of upgrading and adding new information) will also tell you something about our many activities, all of them aiming to help you, and your family if you have one, to find a place where you can receive what we have to offer but, also, where you are able to contribute to the ongoing life, and ministry, of God’s Church in, and through, Emmanuel.
We would, of course, be delighted if you chose to join our church family and to make Emmanuel your spiritual home. However, becoming part of a Christian community takes time and so we ask that you will be patient with us - we’re still learning - and take the time to enjoy all that we have to offer to you!
