Our Church Services
Here at Emmanuel we know that people enjoy connecting with God through a variety of different types of service; from an informal family service, to a traditional Holy Communion, we hope we have it covered.
Our 8:30am Holy Communion Service is held once a month. It is reflective in style, congregates in the Prayer Corner and is followed by tea and toast.
Our 11:00am Morning Services typically follow a set monthly pattern;
2nd Sunday of the Month – All Age Worship
Our whole Church family comes together in worship, including members of our Boys’ Brigade and Girls’ Brigade Companies. The atmosphere is friendly, with lots of interaction encouraged and space for babies and young children to move about, play and feel at home during the service.
3rd Sunday of the Month – Holy Communion
A more traditional service, where all are welcome to come and share in the Sacrament or receive a blessing.
Other Sundays during the month are led by either our own ministers or local preachers. Occasionally our monthly schedule may be adjusted to accommodate significant dates in the Christian calendar, incorporating special services.
A crèche is run each Sunday during morning service and Junior Church also meets each week. All are invited to stay for refreshments after our morning services; it is a wonderful opportunity for us to spend time together and foster relationships within our church family.
Our Evening Services also change depending on the week.
Once a month, instead of the usual evening service, we come together for a 5:30pm Café-style Worship, where food is shared and conversation happens.
Our usual 4:00pm Evening Service takes place on the other Sundays each month. It is a much more thoughtful and intimate gathering, incorporating Bible teaching and quiet reflection.
