About us

When you think of Emmanuel Church, the first thing that comes to mind is the unforgettable posters, for Example, "Forget Big Brother! Talk to Our Father" or "Every saint has a past and every sinner can have a future." Our aim is to catch peoples attention, and make them stop and think.

We are all about making a difference. We want to see people come and know the joy that we know, that is found in living for Jesus, helping each other along the paths of life, sometimes easy but sometimes hard.

At Emmanuel Church, we want to set things right and show the world what christianity is all about. It's not dull or boring, but a freedom in Christ.

Many people think that christians want everyone to end up in hell, and that God wants to send everyone there, nothing can be further from the truth, the message of Jesus was about Gods love, that He sent his Son, Jesus.

John 3:16 (King James Version)

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

How we started

In the late 1940's, a group of believers met together in Shirley, in a Second World War Nissan Hut, and were known as 'The Evangelical Free Church.'
