We are an evangelical church that believes in the reality of knowing Jesus and being led by the Holy Spirit. 
The interwoven story of our 350 year history can be found hereOur distinctives can be found here.

We want to grow together as a church family, presenting the opportunity for each person to know and serve the God who is Love. That's why we believe the gospel really is 'good news' and we want to share it.

Our vision is for the saints to:

• know God and make Him known;
• serve in their God-appointed ministries;
• be united in love and Christian fellowship.


Our core values shape our culture and set the precedent.
They are 'love, community and honour'.

LOVE

Our aim is to love God with all our heart, soul and mind (Matt. 22:37), and to love our neighbours as ourselves (Matt. 22:39). Our love for God is expressed through obedience (John 14:15) and our love for people is based upon His Word (Lev. 19:9-18).

COMMUNITY

We are a community that meets at Emmanuel Christian Centre (Rom. 16:5), being salt and light to the community around us (Matt. 5:13-16). As a church we aim to be a family (Heb. 2:11 & 1 Tim. 5:1-2) which grows together as the body of Christ (1 Cor. 12:27), while declaring Jesus’ message to the world (Matt. 10:27).

HONOUR

We seek to show honour in every aspect of our lives. This means we honour God above all (Rev. 5:13), we honour authority (Rom. 13:1 & 1 Pet. 2:17), we honour our leaders (1 Tim. 5:17), we honour each other (Rom. 12:10), we honour financially (Prov. 3:9), and we aim to be vessels of honour (2 Tim. 2:20-21).
