Key info about the church...
When and where does the church meet?
The church meets every Sunday at 10.30am for our morning service at North Leamington School, Sandy Lane, Leamington Spa CV32 6RD
The Sunday evening service takes place at 6.30pm
in our own building on Heath Terrace in the Milverton area of Leamington Spa CV32 5LY.
You can see a map marked with both locations on our contact us page
North Leamington School has ample space in a large car park in front of the school.
Our own church building is in a residential area, so we ask that you are considerate of our neighbours, and if you are able to walk a short distance, then avoid parking on Heath Terrace itself wherever possible.
What can I expect when I visit the church?
Whichever service you come to, you can expect a warm welcome, an easy-to follow format, preaching from the Bible, a mixture of old and new songs, and a friendly bunch of ordinary people of mixed ages and backgrounds, gathering to learn more about God.
Also tea, coffee and biscuits afterwards!
There is usually someone at the door to greet you as you come in.
Please feel free to ask them any questions or raise any concerns you may have about what to expect.
What happens to the kids at church?
We have a growing number of children and babies at Emmanuel and each week we run several clubs for toddlers, children and young people. During our morning services, children of primary age are invited to join in with Sunday school. While the adults are in the main meeting, the children can enjoy Bible teaching at the same time, aimed specifically at their own age group. A creche is also provided for babies and toddlers during the second half of the service. More about creche...
Our children's programme is for ages 4-12. All children stay with their families for the first part of the service. When the service leader indicates it's time for the children to go to their groups, visitors are very welcome to join in - just follow the crowd! It starts with all of the children together, before they divide into smaller age groups. Children can expect to have fun, learning about God in a relevant way.
On your first visit, we would appreciate it if you come out with your child to register them, before returning to the main meeting.
Will I be made to feel uncomfortable?
Not at all!
Our service format is easy to follow, and led from the front so it is always clear what's going on. We generally (but not always!) stand to sing and sit to pray, as you'll see others doing. Song words are projected onto the screen at the front so it's easy to take part if you want to, but no-one will think badly of you if you stay seated, or choose not to sing. We want you to feel at home with us.
