What’s on each week at Emmanuel

Sunday mornings each week we meet for our service at 10.30am.  During the service there are groups for children and young people and also a creche for younger children and babies.  There is an opportunity to meet to pray for the service each week 10.10-10.20am- all welcome to join in.  Refreshments are served in the hall following the service.   Our services are live-streamed so still available to watch remotely for those who wish. You can access our online service here.

Prayer Focus will now be meeting in person, at Emmanuel on the 1st Wednesday of each month at 8pm and will continue to meet on Zoom at 8pm on the 3rd Wednesday of each month.  Please do join us when you are able.  In December, the first Prayer Focus will be taking place on Tuesday 30 November at 8pm in the building (so accommodate Christmas Journey on Wednesday).

Oasis is our bi-weekly, mid-week group for people over 60 years.  The group meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month at 2.30pm in the hall for puzzles, quizzes, short Bible talks or presentations, tea and cake.  Please contact the office if you want to know more.  All welcome to come along.

Home Groups are meeting in person, at various times so please contact your Home Group leader for details.  If you are not currently in a Home Group and would like to talk with someone about joining one, please contact the office.

Cross Train meets on Friday evenings 7-8.30pm; a group for young people ages 10-14 to come together, have fun, talk about Jesus and play games.  You can find out more about Cross Train here.

Covid – In order to help protect everyone who comes into the Emmanuel building from catching and/or spreading of COVID-19, we are asking all visitors to  record their visit by using the NHS Test & Trace QR code or our paper registration.  Both can be found in the vestibule at the main entrance.  There is no longer a need to register to attend a service– simply come along.  Please wear a face covering when coming and going to a service but feel free to remove it once you have taken your seat in the main meeting area.   You are free to sit anywhere and do make use of the red “please leave vacant” signs if you want the seats next to you to remain vacant.  If you would prefer that a regular seat is “reserved for you” each Sunday, please contact Cara Rodger.
