Fusion 2018
May
26
to May 29

Fusion 2018

At Emmanuel we are part of a family of churches called Regions Beyond, which stretches across the planet.

In May 2018, Regions Beyond churches from around the world will be gathering at Norfolk Showground for the Fusion 2018 conference event.

Lots more information and the link to the booking form can be found here

New for this year, there'll be a massive street party! If you have skills that could be useful - artists, storytellers, circus acts, puppeteers, buskers or others - please email: mark@theapexchurch.org

As a church, we want to support our people to attend Fusion 2018. We are offering adults up to £50 off the entry cost - and children and young people will be wholly funded. For more information, email: finance@emmanuel.org.uk

We are also encouraging people to serve at Fusion, which gets you money off the cost too.

The church will be taking a large van to the event to help with transporting camping gear etc. If you want to put items in the van, please bring them to The Durham Centre car park on Tuesday 22nd May, between 7pm and 9pm. We are suggesting a minimum donation of £10 towards the cost. Gas bottles may not be placed in the van. For more information, email Keith Mallard.

And once we're there, we'll have the blessing of a marquee, where we can gather to share community and food together. Cooking will not be allowed in the marquee, but it will be carpeted, so children can play. It will also protect us from adverse weather, should it come!

We are really looking forward to spending time together as a church family, enjoying each others company, encountering the Lord and hearing what He wants to say to us. If you have any questions or would like to hear more then please speak to Keith Mallard or one of the other Elders

God Loves

to Jun 17

God Loves

God Loves is back for 2018!

God Loves is our annual June mission week, of practical serving - demonstrating Jesus’ love to our communities - backed up with lots of prayer, worship, teaching and family fun!

This year, God Loves runs from Saturday 9th to Sunday 17th June, and we’ll be focusing in Chester-le-Street, Gilesgate, the A1/19 corridor and local schools.

We’ll begin with a Fun Day in Chester-le-Street on Saturday 9th June.

From Tuesday 12th to Friday 15th June, we’ll be gathering each morning at Durham City Baptist Church, in Gilesgate, for teaching, prayer and worship. And then in the afternoons we’ll be out and about, doing street mission, prayer spaces, supporting local causes and charities and much more, yet to be confirmed!

The week in Durham concludes with a baptisms service at The Durham Centre on Sunday 17th June. In Chester-le-Street, there will be a family service at 10:30am and The Living Room from 3pm to 5pm.

This is open to all in our church, and there are lots of ways you can get involved, whatever your availability – from helping organise the week, to providing transport, to getting involved in the practical serving, to feeding tired (but fired up!) students and 20s on a midweek evening.

For more information, see Ali Scott or John Oliver. Or email: info@emmanuel.org.uk

Supporting our young people to flourish

We are excited about how God is working in the lives our young people, and expanding our ministry with young people.

Project Arrow is a programme through which young people can be discipled: supported and stretched in faith.

The programme will be relaunched on Sunday 29th April, at The Durham Centre, immediately after our morning service.

This session will run for approximately 90 minutes and include some teaching on discipleship, looking at the handbook for Project Arrow, looking through resources and sharing good practice.

All are welcome. Please bring lunch. If you plan to attend, please email: naomi.ryan@emmanuel.org.uk

Following this session, there will be drop-in sessions, probably on a monthly basis, where those discipling young people can meet Pete Gray or Naomi Ryan, to discuss challenges, good practice and useful resources.

Humanitarian Mapping workshop

Maps are a vital and often missing resource for humanitarian work in a number of situations. We can practically help the Red Cross, MSF, and others, from here in Durham.

After Emmanuel's church service, let's go upstairs to for a session to create maps that will help out NGOs across the world. Where and for what use will be determined closer to the date depending on current events and needs across the world.

What to bring:
* Your laptop (required, touchscreen tablets/phones won't work).
* The charger for the laptop (in-case needed).
* A plug-in mouse (makes it easier than a laptop trackpad)
* Your own packed lunch/sandwiches (so you're not hungry)
* Under 16s are welcome with adult supervision (i.e. someone they can teach)
* A willingness to help others
* Please let me know if you're going to attend for the first time. If so I will lead a follow-along demonstration and explanation of what we're doing.

International Sunday

We are all part of God's family, which stretches across the globe. And our vision is to be a growing, charismatic family church with a world vision.

We are proud of the diversity we have among our congregations in Durham and Chester-le-Street, and our links with friends and churches worldwide.

International Sunday celebrates all of this - with great colour and celebration.

Join us at The Durham Centre on Sunday 4th March, at 10:30am.

This will be a joint meeting of our Durham and Chester-le-Street congregations. There will be no separate meeting in Chester-le-Street.

During the meeting, we will be taking up an offering to thank God for the granting of planning permission for The Emmanuel Centre. This was the first hurdle to clear as we look to extend and expand our Kingdom Resource Centre in Durham, which will bring provision for the nation and the nations.  At the same time, part of the offering will be going to a church in Pune, India, to enable a couple to enlarge their meeting place for a Hindi speaking house church, enable leadership training and support other house church plants.
