In a bigger church it can be more difficult to enjoy meaningful friendships and fellowship with everyone. Home fellowship groups provide an opportunity to feel part of a group of modest size, yet representing church folks of different ages and situations in life. Newcomers to church quickly feel they "belong" in a home group
Our church family includes many children and young people, and there is plenty going on for them too. On Sunday mornings we provide a great programme for children at church for ages 0-12, and regular clubs run for each age group during the week.
Emmanuel is a church family with a genuine heart for students. We love to offer hospitality with families for Sunday lunch and have a regular programme of studies aimed at helping you grow in your faith and understanding while you are at university.
Building good friendships in the church is especially easy for those in the 20-40s age bracket, as a variety of social activities are organised each month to suit everyone.
Men and women each have their own ministries too, including breakfasts, small groups, away days, 121s and other events.
Our ministry to the over 60s is two-fold. For those recently retired but still fairly fit we have a 60+ group running socials and outings each month. We also have a much-loved tea and talk at church on the first Sunday afternoon of the month.
