Should you bring your children to church?

Yes! Children not only have a special place in Jesus' heart, they are very special to us here, too.  At Emmanuel, we are committed to creating a church where everyone, from the youngest to the oldest, will feel both welcome and comfortable.

The start of our services are 'Family Worship' times when the whole church worships together before children leave to go to their own groups except 'All Age Worship' services (first Sunday of the month) when families remain together for the service.

All children are encouraged to attend ‘Sunday School’ or Crèche. Parents are welcome to stay, until children are confident enough to stay on their own.

Our Crèche is a comfortable and warm place for parents to take children if they become unsettled. Here you will still be able to see and hear what is taking place in our worship area.

We have several activities throughout the week for parents with children. Our welcome leaflet has further information. Also, please speak with me, a churchwarden, one of our welcome team, or one of our stewards, who are willing to help you.
