Welcome to Emmanuel. We believe that church is family, and we really value our multigenerational community feel. We have deep roots in the local community in Stoughton, though people come to us from across north Guildford. In everything we do, our vision is Jesus. We want to know him better ourselves, and we want to make him better known.
Our building is a hub of activity all week, from our café, fair trade shop, and Little Stars preschool, through to groups for children, teenagers, students, and adults of all ages. Do come and try one of our services on Sunday, to hear more about the God who made you, loves you, and even came to earth so that you could know him. If you drop in you’ll find a warm welcome, and we’d love to get to know you better

Coming to Emmanuel
Emmanuel Church is located at the junction of Shepherd’s Lane and Worplesdon Road. If you are walking there are entrances on both the Worplesdon Road and Shepherd’s Lane side. During the week the best entrance is normally the Parish Centre which can be found by following the signs down the back of the church.
There is a car park accessed from Shepherd’s Lane or you can park in the residential roads near by. There are parking spaces designated for those with a disability badge. Emmanuel’s buildings are fully accessible at ground level – with a curb up from the car park. The first floor of the Parish Centre can be accessed via a lift and there are accessible toilets on both levels.
If you are planning an event, there are rooms to hire in the Parish Centre – details on our Contact pages. If you have any other questions, do get in touch.
