The aim of House Groups at Emmanuel is to foster a sense of community throughout the church and to create an environment where members can build relationships, grow together spiritually, pray and learn. The current groups have different formats and no two are the same, as you might expect from people with differing but valuable gifts.


This forms a vital connection between God and each other. House Groups are a place of prayer as we seek God together in unity.

"...pray for one another, that you may be healed"

James 5:16


This is the gift of welcoming one another and showing love in action. House Groups are a place to love Jesus by demonstrating hospitality. 

"Share with the Lord's people; practice hospitality"

Romans 12:13


Showing support to one another is akin to serving Jesus directly. House Groups are a place to show faith with works of loving obedience.

"what you did for one of the least, you did for Me"

Matthew 25:40

When you meet together...
