holiday club

A massive undertaking each year, enjoyed by children and leaders alike. Crushed temporarily by Covid and now making its return, a themed week at the end of summer term for around 120 Primary School aged children and around 50 helper-leaders of one kind or another. Once described as Emmanuel's Disney Land. The difference being ours is to share the reality and adventure of following Jesus.

The Treat!

At Halloween, evening of Trick or Treat, we offer to our younger community and parents, a fun-filled hall of pumpkins, lasers, mazes, smoke, hot dogs and blazing light. All to celebrate The Light of the World rather than the world of darkness. No tricks, just the treat!

events

Social Calendar

One of the aspirations of our church is to be one big family. Our Social Calendar is available on a tri-fold card in church. It has events every month which variously suit every age and stage of life!

You're welcome at everything, whoever you are!

Fairs

Each year we hold summer (June) and Christmas (November) fairs. An opportunity to engage with and serve our local community, and normally to raise some funds for missions we sponsor.

Dickensian

As Christmas approaches, we spend a family Friday Dickensian evening in the church grounds singing carols, sipping glühwein, playing games and welcoming Father Christmas. Another chance to engage with and serve our local community.
