What to expect

Emmanuel is a family church where you will receive a warm welcome. Below is some more information about what you can expect at EBC.

Join us

We meet at 10.30am every Sunday morning for praise, led by our worship band, prayer and studying God’s word together.

Following the worship songs the children usually leave for their junior church programme which caters for all ages from 2 years through to teens . There is also a quiet room for mums and babies with a live link to the services.

Let’s catchup

Tea and coffee are served before and after every service providing the perfect opportunity to catch up and meet new people. 

Why not come and join in? We would love to welcome you.

Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.Colossians 3:16 (NIV)

Some questions you may have..

What will happen when I come for the first time?

We have a welcome team that will greet you at the doors as you enter the main foyer. From here we serve teas and coffees. You are welcome to take this with you into the main worship space where you can take any seat!

What if my child is loud during the service?

Firstly, no problem. The joy of being a family church is that we are used to little ones getting involved. Dancing during worship, shouting for snacks – we’ve seen it all. Please don’t be embarrassed if it happens, your welcome to stay in, move to the foyer or use one of our other rooms until you feel comfortable re-joining us.

Is there a dress code on a Sunday morning?

The short answer is no. Whilst we’d like you to feel comfortable, we also ask you to remember that EBC is a place of worship and a family church.

How long is your service?

Our services are roughly an hour and a half long. We have an half an hour to 40 minutes of worship and family time. The young people then go out to their children’s groups and there is a 20-25 minute sermon.

Am I expected to take part in the service?

You’re welcome to take part as much or as little as you like. If you’re uncomfortable with standing and joining in the worship then please feel free to stay seated. If you’d rather not take part in communion – you’re not required to and we’d like you to feel at home.

What happens when the service is finished?

After the service we ask parents to collect their children from their groups. We also invite you to join us for a tea or coffee in the foyer and stay for a chat. If you’d prefer to disappear as soon as the service finishes, you’re of course welcome to, but we’d like to get to know you.
