Emmanuel – A Church Without Walls – 9 April 2020

9th April 2020

‘I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now,  being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.’
Philippians 1:3-6

Things to thank God for …

  • all the work that the team have put into preparing for all the Holy Week services, Passover Meals and Messy Church
  • the Tech team who have been supporting those with IT challenges and who need support to get on-line to stay connected with family and friends
  • new volunteers supporting in new activities like video editing or supporting those in need at this time, in mind, body and spirit.

EASTER MESSY CHURCH – Sat 11 Apr 11am*


During our Easter Sunday celebration we are going to share communion together. Please have with you some food and drink to share. Ideally this might be some bread and red wine/ribena, but it could be orange squash and cookies, but that’s fine! Let’s commemorate and celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus together.

Peter Graystone will be broadcasting a special Easter Sunday podcast via our YouTube channel, which will be available for you straight after 10am service.
