Verse of the Year

11th January 2021

Our verse of the year brings the sense of connection that comes from being a church family of God, joined together and giving each other the support we need to as we look to and find our strength in Jesus.

Listen to John Adams and Natasha Burt as they discuss Emmanuel Croydon’s Verse for 2021:

From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.”

Ephesians 4:16

Advent leaflet

26th November 2020

Over this weekend (28/29 Nov) we will be distributing a leaflet to every household in the parish. This leaflet includes a Christmas message from Ben, a “Meet the Vicar” article from John, details of our various events in the run up to Christmas and much more.

A copy of the leaflet is attached below.

Please feel free to share the leaflet with others you have contact with – either electronically or by downloading the leaflet and printing it off

The Realisation – Out Now

5th October 2020

Emmanuel Worship’s debut album is out now! It is available to download and stream from anywhere you can listen to music. 


The songs come from a group of songwriters at Emmanuel Croydon who write from the heart of our local church. The project was funded by the wonderful people of Emmanuel Croydon.

These songs form the worship language of our church, a language that informs and inspires an entire culture of worship of Jesus Christ. We hope and pray that these songs can inspire a similar culture of hope, grace and love in Jesus for everyone who hears them.

Join in with our Online Sunday Services

17th May 2020

Afternoon Emmanuel,

I do hope you enjoyed this morning’s online service as much as I did. The services have been so amazing and everyone involved in them is absolutely brilliant!


They’re missing a certain something


So while we’re not able to worship together in the same room I’ve had this little idea…

What if we could all be on the screen worshiping our socks off!?


I would love it if as many people as possible could film themselves grooving, dancing, being silly and/or doing the actions to the song King Of Me. (if you don’t know the actions don’t worry, just make them up!)

Eli and I did a little test video to show you what I mean:


So if you’d like to get involved here’s some simple step by step instructions:

1. Set up your camera to film HORIZONTAL and press record

2. Play the example video of me and Eli from another device nice and loud and give me four claps in time with my claps at the beginning of the video. This will help us sync everybody up.

3. Get grooving! Show me your best moves! Have fun with it! It doesn’t need to be perfect it just needs to reflect you and your family.

4. Send me your videos!! They’ll probably be too big to email so if you’re savvy with Dropbox or other file sharing sites use that. If not I would recommend using https://wetransfer.com. Just go to that website (it works on your phone), follow the on screen instructions, and send the video to stuart@emmanuelcroydon.org.uk.

Just a head up, in sending us your videos you’re giving us permission to include them in a video that will be available to the public on YouTube.

I’ll need all videos to be sent by the end of this coming Thursday so I’ve got time to put it together for next Sunday 24th May.

Thanks everyone!
