COVID Restrictions Easing

Dear folks

Following the announcement by the Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday evening 5th July 2021 that many restrictions will be eased from July 19th we are announcing that Emmanuel Methodist Church will be awaiting further guidance from Gov. UK specifically aimed at Churches along with guidance from the Methodist Church Connexion before relaxing any of our current restrictions.

We are all looking forward to being able to sing together again and enable more people to attend gatherings however, we are also mindful of being prayerful and careful in keeping our Community safe, so will continue to follow best practice as we have done throughout the Pandemic.

We remain open on Friday mornings for our prayer meeting from 10.30am and we gather every two weeks for worship on Sundays at 11am and 4pm.  These are the dates for the remainder of the summer.


July 18th, August 1st, August 15th and August 29th


Everyone is very welcome to attend so do please reserve your seat by emailing


Every blessing to all,

Deacon Maria


Welcome to Emmanuel Methodist Church!

Do come along to any of our church services or community events where you will always find a warm welcome. 

We aim to build a home at Emmanuel where everyone can truly feel valued and cared for, as we worship and journey together in life.

God bless you and hope to see you soon!

We are every day folk of all ages and walks of life united through our shared Christian faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.


As a local and gathered community we represent many nations and nationalities which adds to the richness and diversity of our congregation. 


We want to be a church family where each person can find their true value and grow as disciples of our loving God.


We meet every Sunday on the Oxford Road at 10.30am and 6.30pm, but once a month we gather at 5.30pm for Cafe style worship, where food is shared and conversation happens. See our services page for more detailed information about what to expect. 

We also gather at other times for prayer, Bible study, handicrafts, networking, DIY, film nights and social events, to name but a few! 

For our children and young people we have uniformed groups including Boys' Brigade and Girls' Brigade, Girl Guides a Baby and Toddler Group and a thriving Junior Church and crèche on Sundays. 

"All are important ways of getting to know one another and our amazing God."
