December Burn

December Burn

  • pin Fram Well House, Framwellgate Peth, Durham (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

On December 1st we're having our next "Evening till Morning" worship and intercession time in Durham city, running from 7pm Friday to 7am Saturday. Many thanks to the Durham Christian Partnership for opening up their home to us. You would be most welcome to join us as we gather around our Immanuel, “God with us” - King Jesus!

At the last Burn in October, there was a real theme of realignment with the heart of a God who sets captives free and a generation rising into fullness. It was so good to see many across Durham churches getting involved!

This Christmas season as we reflect on the incarnation let us continue to look to Jesus! Let's praise him for our adoption as sons and intercede for others; that they would know that same acceptance, affirmation and access to the Father through Jesus witnessed to us by his Spirit! His love changes everything.

Fusion 2018

Emmanuel is 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

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. We do ask for a small donation towards covering the cost of this.

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
