Justin Welby is visiting the Diocese of Guildford in September, engaging with local communities at a series of Big Questions events. This is a unique opportunity to put questions to the Archbishop and hear him speak on how to find security and hope in uncertain times. Each event will last one hour.
All are welcome and admission is free, but places are limited and must be booked in advance.

If you are keen to explore further and ask more Big Questions, Emmanuel Church will be running Alpha from Wednesday 6th October. Find out more at Emmanuel Church Alpha
Special Evening of Worship
Update: 3 September 2021
We are so blessed to be able to worship together again in Church.
As Psalm 92 says: “It is good to praise the lord, and make music to your name, oh Most High, proclaiming your love in the morning and your faithfulness at night…”
In celebration we will be holding a special time of worship and thanksgiving prayer in Church on Saturday 11th September from 7.30pm.
You are most welcome to join us and fill our church again with rejoicing and singing. We are so looking forward to seeing you there.

As the Autumn term begins, we are reintroducing our regular pattern of church worship. We have more chairs in place, with spaced areas to the sides for comfort and safety. You are welcome to join us on Sundays at 8am Holy Communion, 10.30am Sunday Morning Service and 6.30pm Evening Service.
During September for part of the service, there will be children’s activities available in the Hall led by our Children’s and Families Worker, Melissa and our Youth Worker, Sarah. Parents are encouraged to volunteer and help. Do get in touch with either Melissa or Sarah to find out more.
We also have Holy Communion on Wednesdays at 10am.
Please do come along. You are welcome to wear face covering if you prefer and our friendly stewards will be on site to advise when you arrive.
