Thank you for considering coming to Emmanuel Baptist Church. This page will give you an idea of what to expect when you come through the doors of our church.
The people of Emmanuel are a happy group of people that love to see new people coming into the church. We have people of all ages attending the Church. Our typical attendance on a Sunday morning is approximately 500 people. We have a lot of children as well as a thriving seniors group, and all ages in between. If you look through the website, you will see the different ministries that we have for the different age groups.
Emmanuel offers two services each Sunday morning. Services are identical in content with one beginning at 9:00am and the next at 11:00am. Following the service we have coffee and tea available, and sometimes goodies that people bring! If you choose to do so, we'd love to have you stay.
We have many different worship teams that lead our worship time. The teams utilize a variety of instruments, including guitars, drums, keyboard, piano, violin, etc. The teams alternate from Sunday to Sunday and to provide a variety of music styles. We typically have a mixture of contemporary music and traditional hymns during the service.
If you have children, we provide a nursery for infants to 3 years old and also a Sunday school that takes place during the worship services. During the service the pastor asks the young children to come to the front of the church for a story and shortly after that the children go to their classes. We have three age groups, which are all very well attended. We have quite a lot of children in our congregation. If you prefer your children to stay in the service and not go to Sunday school that is fine also.
What to wear
We do not expect you to dress any particular way we're just glad that you're coming. Most of those who attend dress casually. I suppose the best way to describe the majority would be 'smart casual.'
We look forward to seeing you!
