Phatfish Concert at Emmanuel

Phatfish Concert at Emmanuel

Conferences are a regular feature of life here at Emmanuel.

We believe in the value of welcoming trusted friends and acknowledged speakers to bring the word of God to us in new, refreshing and challenging ways.

These events are both a tool for equipping us here at Emmanuel and serving the wider Christian community.

Annual events

Fun Days

We love to serve our local communities and see people of all ages enjoying spending time together and having fun. As part of this, we stage free family fun days each year. These are always great times, with loads of activities, games, crafts and entertainment.

The Hub weekend away

Each year, The Hub community has a weekend away from Durham to spend time focusing on Jesus and getting to know Him better through good Bible teaching and the ministry of the Spirit. There is also lots of food, games and laughter – a great combination!

Christmas events

Here, a Emmanuel, we love Christmas - the time of year when we celebrate Jesus born into the world as a baby, 2,000 years ago.

We always host a range of great events open to the whole community, which have included carols services, brass band concerts, Christmas fun days and more.


Newday is a major youth camping event that takes place each summer over about six days, aimed at 12 to 19-year-olds.


We have been taking a group of young people each year for some time now and seen God move in powerful ways.
